friends. This record comes to you through the Sales Talk Transcription Company, Incorporated: your speaker, the Mechanical Salesman. May I take the pleasure of introducing Mr. J. Widdecombe Billows, the inventor of the Billows Feeding Machine, a practical device which automatically feeds your men while at work? Don't stop for lunch: be ahead of your competitor. The Billows Feeding Machine will eliminate the lunch hour, increase your production, and decrease your overhead. Allow us to point out some of the features of this wonderful machine: its beautiful, aerodynamic, streamlined body; its smoothness of action, made silent by our electro-porous metal ball bearings. Let us acquaint you with our automaton soup plate -- its compressed-air blower, no breath necessary, no energy required to cool the soup. Notice the revolving plate with the automatic food pusher. Observe our counter-shaft, double-knee-action corn feeder, with its synchro-mesh transmission, which enables you to shift from high to low gear by the mere tip of the tongue. Then there is the hydro-compressed, sterilized mouth wiper: its factors of control insure against spots on the shirt front. These are but a few of the delightful features of the Billows Feeding Machine. Let us demonstrate with one of your workers, for actions speak louder than words. Remember, if you wish to keep ahead of your competitor, you cannot afford to ignore the importance of the Billows Feeding Machine. - Modern Times (1936)

The Bittersweet Sound Of Permanent Hearing Damage
April 15, 2003

Have you ever been out to a club or concert and woke up the next day to find your ears were still ringing?

After 5 hours of being in a club where a world famous DJ was spinning records through a very expensive (and very loud) sound system my ears felt like they could take a little more punishment.

So it was off to an afterhours club, with equally loud music in a much smaller venue. After 3 hours of that I remember not being able to hear a damn thing anyone was trying to say to me.

The next day I woke up with the usual ear-ringing sensation and everything still sounding a bit muffled. The ringing stopped, but it was replaced with a new sensation, a soft static sound.

When it's really quiet I can hear a constant static-like hiss. It would actually be quite soothing if it weren't so disconcerting.
