In relation to my going deaf... i weas asked by the doctor if i was in any loud music situations in my social life I answered in the affirmative, like we all would - gigs and stuff, but also gunfire. Anyway... he mentioned headphones.
Now, i have mine just below the pause symbol on my iPhone iPod app, which is perfect for me. I have noise cancelling earphones so that is fine - but all of those kids i see with their white shite earbuds turned up to maxiumum MUST be getting worse than I am. Are we going to have an epedemic of deaf people when we are all older?
