    Default 20,000hz Sound

    Most humans are born with the ability to hear frequencies from about 20 Hz (low) up to 20,000 Hz (high) but that range shrinks as we get older.

    Linked is a 20,000hz sound file (http://download.npr.org/anon.npr-mp3...c_teenbuzz.mp3). Make sure your speakers are on and your sound is unmuted. When you play this file, listen carefully for a high-pitched sound. If you can't hear it, you have some hearing loss!

    Yup, I can hear it. Strange, because when I ran another kind of test, where I started at 15 kHz, and went higher and higher, I couldn't hear higher than 18,5 kHz. o.o

    Gah I will have to try it later, because right now, there are people talking in my house.

    EDIT: Closed the door and now I can hear it.

    Even my mom can hear it. I think I managed to scare the daylights out of my cat, who now is trying to stop me from typing.
    <Stormrider> I should bomb something ...and it's off the cuff remarks like that that are the reason I don't log chats. Just in case the FBI ever needs anything on me
    <Elzie_Ann> I'm sure they can just get it from someone who DOES log chats.
    <FBI> We saw it anyway.

    A cool thing of mine is that I can hear electronics even when I'm not in the room.
    Example: I know that my class is watching a movie before I get there because I can hear the TV. (All it's got is a blue screen on.)

    Though many people can do that.

    @ Samail: Me too. Except I can hear when my mom is watching TV at 12 midnight from my room when all the doors are closed, even though the sound is off.
