    I'll start! A squealing hearing aid will propel towards the nearest door at warp speed! Super high-pitched & LOUD!

    A draw between chalk screeching on a chalk board and those constantly ringing school bells. Seriously, did they have to be so loud?!

    Noise past a certain volume. I am more or less fine with bird vocalizations (although the chachalacas and lapwings push it), but I don't like loud noise.

    Middle class British accent. I can't stand it. I can't listen to our country's radio stations because they all talk like that. I can stand any dialect, any accent, but this one. I have no idea why. It's irrational but I hate the sound so much.

    On accents, the Yankee accent gets me, nasal, higher pitched than a Southern accent.

    My last favorites sounds are many people talking at once, people eating, and the tinnitus that's always in my head.

    If you could arrange to have your eardrums
    broken a few times, the tinnitus would be
    less noticeable. :eek::oops:

    I speak from experience.

    Also, I know that if my blood sugar is stable,
    not dropping, the tinnitus is easier to
    tolerate.

    In my small town, there's a tornado/air raid/general emergency siren that goes off (gets tested?) every SINGLE day at 6 am, noon, 1 pm, and 6 pm. It's one of those sirens that's meant to be loud enough to be heard from miles away, and it's on top of the fire station about 100 feet from my house.

    "wwwwwwwwwwwwwooooooooooooooooOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo..................................................................................................................."

    Yeah, definitely that.

    Why would they need to test it 4 times a day?

    For me it's the sound an old monitor or tv makes, that really nasty high pitched constant hum. If I hear it I have to move / run away quick.

    Another one from me is Justin Beiber's singing.
    I'm not joking - whenever I hear that guy's singing, I start getting a real pain in the middle of my head and have to either get away from it or change the radio station.
