I was just thinking and all of the sudden the most annoying sound starts. I loose my train of thought and turn up my head phones. It was the click clack clickity stinking clack of the keyboard. I mean really cant the people who make these danged keyboards make them quite. Its all I can do to not scream and break every keyboard I see. Self restraint is kicking in. Ok I am good.

Well thats the sound that would drive me to near insanity as the blood pressure rises. Whats yours?

Just for you pageoneresults [fathom.org] ;)

As for the sounds...

Dentist's drill making contact.

Grinding teeth.

Chimes of doom. (Mac only)

Dentist's drill making contact.

Ignition key being turned when the car is already running.

Grinding gears.

Microphone feedback... when you're the one making a speech.

Dentist's drill making contact.

My boss has an old Dell keyboard. Very loud. Very, very VERY LOUD! He also type very, very fast. Imagine sitting a few meters aways from a machine gun...

After hearing thousands and thousands of tunes (had my first mobile in 92), and i have heard them all, from all different phone manufactures, they are just awfull, when i buy (or shoud i say get one for free) a phone today (happens quite often) the one's i stick to is the one's with the strongest vibrator, normally you can buy a add-on so it vibrates more, i made the manufacture specialize mine so it was included already from the beginning :)

Have you tried birdsounds? They sound very relaxing... Since I live in central London we don't have any birds so I always know it must be my mobile...

Well i've tried different samsung products which uses mp3 for ringtones, that wasn't that bad, even though they haven't been released yet and won't for some time, otherwise mobiles comming out soon, with 40 Polyphonic tones, isn't that bad but still not mp3.

Most of you won't understand, but I live on a Caribbean island with wild chickens all over the place. Cattle, goats, donkeys, sheep and pigs also roam around freely ...and mostly in my garden!

The blasted roosters have no idea when sunrise is as they crow any time of the day or night. Very annoying! Then the donkeys start braying and go on and on. It seems the chickens wake them up too. ... It says something for the NRA! ;) (just kidding)

Liane: I work in a building off of a busy highway. There's a neighborhood of houses behind our building. One of them has chickens and a rooster. That bloody rooster doesn't know he's only supposed to crow at sunrise, apparently. UGH!

For very relaxing noises try working next to a school. For some reason hearing screaming kids all day is strangly calming. (And this from someone who doesn't want kids)

My 8 yr old daughter saying:

"Daddy, something is wrong with my computer!"

Just something about the way she says it. :)

Also what lawman said above!

WildAngel's 'tap dripping in middle of night' reminded me.

The definition of intimidation:

A lone mosquito in a dark bedroom.

Just try going to sleep :)
