Please do not let this come to America! I have trouble with everyday noises since I stopped smoking (my sense of hearing is elevated). Sometimes when I am watching TV and either certain voices or a person speaking fast continuosly without taking a breath starts to sound like a sqwauk box so I mute my TV so I think these things would make me crackup and maybe go postal...oh but wait...I would never go to a live game anyway...too many people in one place...something else I don't like...crowds!
