The questionnaire, parts 6 and 7

I'm going to combine the sixth and seventh questions from the questionnaire, because the answers to both are short:

What sound or noise do you hate?

Construction noise.

There's not a lot to say about this. Cacophony of any sort bothers me. Construction noise epitomizes it, but other examples abound:

  • Noisy crowds.
  • Leaf blowers and other such unnecessary noise pollution.
  • Sepultura
  • Most compositions by Arnold Schönberg.
  • Any   speech   by   George   W.   Bush


What is your favourite curse word?

I don't do bad language on this blog. Let's just say that it's a compound string of words, and it's very evocative. I use it when I hear some of the examples above.
