Boombah, Boombah, Boombah [May. 13th, 2019|10:41 am]

A car goes past on the Maidstone Road with its in-car entertainment system going at full blast. The road is about three stone's throws away from the house and all I can hear is the thumping of the bass- which sounds so exactly like the big drum of a marching band that for a moment I'm fooled and the part of my mind that works in pictures conjures up a march past of bandsmen in scarlet jackets and shakos. A split second later the part of my mind that does logic chimes in and says, "Don't be silly, they'd not last five minutes on the Maidstone Road with the traffic the way it is."

And Maidstone is always a bottleneck.

I'm not fond of Maidstone- and very unfond of driving through it.

Always keep asking myself "How can you still drive with that deafening level of noise all around you?". If you just stand solidly somewhere and want to your little bit of open air disco, this would seem okay to do.
But while in traffic...
Well, I don't need to understand everything.

It's because low bass frequencies travel far. The one playing the music in the car is not experiencing that booming bass; people at a distance are getting the bass. So, it's really ridiculous. They are playing music for others rather than their self.

Hm... Even if you don't hear it that much inside the car yourself...
The vibrations coming with it should be noticeable to you or am I mistaken?

Again, the vibrations would be felt more at a distance.

This has happened with neighbors many times. I complain about their loud music. They don't realize that it is loud. It's just that they have the bass turned up. I turn down the bass and am no longer bothered. And they don't notice a difference because it sounds they same to them.

Hm, well in that point I sure have problems phrasing arguments because to my shredded hearing nerves everything is loud...
