Day 2896: Sounds we hate

I hate the sounds of

  • pain,
  • misery,
  • madness,
  • lies,
  • narcissism,
  • grandiosity,
  • greed,
  • ignorance,
  • violence,
  • nails on a blackboard,
  • babies crying,
  • cats crying,
  • human screams,
  • racism,
  • sexism,
  • ageism,
  • homophobia, and
  • other forms of hate.

According to a study described in Medical News Today, the most hated sounds include three of the sounds I hate plus

  • an electric drill,
  • brakes on a cycle squealing,
  • a knife scraping against a bottle,
  • a ruler on a bottle,
  • a fork on a glass, and
  • chalk on a blackboard.

What sound do you think was the most hated sound? Please sound off in the comments section below about that and also about sounds you hate.

Are there any sounds we hate in my latest images?

I love the sound of Rick Wilson responding to sounds of hate with “You seem nice.”

Here’s “The Sound of Silence” by Simon & Garfunkel

… and “The Sweetest Sounds” from the musical No Strings, sung by Diahann Carroll.

I love the sounds of gratitude, so thanks to all who help me create these daily blogs, including YOU.

What is April to you?

April thanks to all who helped me create this post and to you — of course! — for being here, most likely in April.
