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.
