Audio hilarity

No one wants to get old. especially youth workers.  So, earlier this week when my son sent me a link to the infamously annoying to teenagers mosquito tone (a noise in the high-end range that our ears lose after years of  loud music, screaming kids, and chronological advances), youth workers everywhere started posting with glee if they were over 25 and could hear this noise.  It’s a fun site, with a badge you can use to boast of your achievement, or mourn your aural insufficiency.  You can try it here.

Enter Adam, my sarcastic genius of a friend.  I mean that as a compliment, mostly!  Within 24 hours of my passing the link above to him, the Parent Audio Test was online and cracking me up.  Click here, try it, grab the badge, tell your friends, because it is just that funny.  If you don’t think so, 😛 – yes, I’m just that mature.  :)

    I am “slightly” over 25 and could not hear it at all, even with the volume turned all the way up. Torre
    PS. Perhaps that means that I won’t hear mosquitos anymore (but I doubt that!). One thing I always liked about the anopheles mosquito (which gives you malaria, etc.) was that it didn’t sing in your ear. It just went quietly about its business.
