SOUNDS ON TV

Weve noticed how stations that use scrolling and "monkey news" clip, also use a background noise like bells or phone rings. WHY do they do this? They have probably studied the psych implications of filling all spaces, both audio and video with junk and noise.
Anybody notice this?

@farmerman,
Nope. Not here.

Are you sure there's not someone at the door?

Maybe they're also phoning you, so you can let them in.

@farmerman,
I don't have a tv, but that sounds like restaurant noise to me. Many places do that and it drives me nutsie/nutsier. They also did it in the UNM emergency room, where I waited eleven hours to be seen. I could have strangled the staff (nice people working hard) but that would have been counter productive. The restaurant Cracker Barrel, so very much not a favorite, does it, the music worse than the food. I can barely imagining dealing with that fuzz noise every day at work.

@Lordyaswas,
That reminds of the Scotsman, who had become a bit hard of hearing but didn't want to pay for a hearing aid. So he bought a piece of flex, put one end in his top pocket and the other end in his ear. It didn't help his hearing but he found that people spoke to him more loudly.


Is your tv working "two ways", farmerman?

We never had a vote for Scottish Independence when they had their referendum and they voted 'No'.

If the rest of Britain had been included in that referendum vote, I'm guessing that Scotland would have been independent by now.

@Walter Hinteler,
If they'd have got their independence back then, that would now be worth about a tenner, I reckon.

Neither was Dubya's first election victory but that didn't stop him ******* up the Middle East with illegal wars left right and centre.

Even if Scotland left the UK they'd still be British.

@farmerman,
The difference is you're doing it in the here and now. We can't do anything about the past, but we can do something about the present.

The invasion of Iraq had a level of incompetence all of its own. If you're going to invade a country do it properly, that way you might look as if you know what you're actually doing.

@farmerman,
Not only can I spell it, I understand what it means.

So, nobody British dare criticise anything America does, I suppose that counts the same for Italy or any other country that had an empire.

So the history of the British empire means that as an American you should be allowed to invade any country you want and torture/murder/rape as many civilians as you want to.

No wonder you refuse to recognise the International War Crimes Commission in the Hague.

The main criticism isn't that America doesn't do the right thing, or the smart thing, but the dumbest thing imaginable. Everyone else could see the debacle of Iraq long before invasion. How could you have lost in Vietnam? With all those resources it should have been a shoo in, and it would have been had anyone other than America been responsible. Failed coups in Venezuela and Honduras to protect your aristocracy have left you looking stupid.

Despite the awfulness of the British Empire thousands of colonial troops fought for Britain in both world wars. How many Iraqis would offer to fight for America today? **** all.
