I resent that ;-) - I'm 42 and have 40% hearing loss in one ear and 20%
in the other. Often I cannot make out what people are saying - and at
night when my tinnitus takes over I cannot hear the dog walking on the
wooden floor. But then again, I have _enjoyed_ my fair share of
Tchaikovski crescendoes, head-banging rock 'n roll, and other auditory
delights. Fsck dropping pins, I don't sew anyway - give me Bob Dylan,
U2 and the Clash - LOUD ;-)
Of course, all my favourites actually play _music_, not the sorry
repetitious doof-doof noise that kids today listen to. What with iPods
I suspect the next generation will be deafer than me.
