What is the worst sound you have ever heard?

 

 

 

The one that keeps me up at night is ....  Teeth Grinding

For me it was a bang when I expected a click. Has happened to me 3 times, but at least it was someone elses guns. Working at an Armored Truck Company these things happened far too often.

Late afternoon on Friday, March 31, 1972.  About five miles north of San Juan Bautista headed south to San Luis Obispo to visit Half-Breed Pete.

 

Cruisin' along at about seventy in my '69 Bug when there came from the stern a very, very loug *BANG* of a swallowed valve, followed by a screech from one tire as the engine locked up, followed by the air horns on the semi- that barely missed me as the car whipped past in front of his bumper, followed by an equally loud "Oh BLEEEP!" from the operator of the Volkswagen... all rolled up into one.  nail-biting.gif

 

Well.  That's one of the worst sounds.  Most assuredly, there were quite a few others.  :)

The sound of my very young and very ill, dehydrated daughter as the nurse tried to find a vein for an IV saying "Daddy, make her stop."

Not the worst, but among the most annoying: people crinkling candy wrappers and rustling kernels at the bottom of a popcorn bucket at the movie theater.

A glass shattering on the floor, in the dark, and I'm barefoot.

And why would you expect a click?

I heard my son get hit head-on on his new motorcycle.

I still hear it at night quite often.

Sputtering, followed by the sound of wind whistling, when the engine quit on my float plane.

The sound of the rockets on the side of the helicopter going off and I had no ear protection.  The scream of those rockets is still in my head.  The next most horrible sound is the main gun on an M60 going off when you are standing outside of it with no ear protection.  Really hurts.

My young daughter is backing my '65 Impala out of the garage.  Starts to turn the front wheels before the front end cleared the door.  The sound of sheet metal and the garage door frame is one I won't forget.

The sound of car windows breaking and the roof of my car scraping on the pavement as the car rolled over after getting t-boned by a stolen car that ran a stop sign.

 

 I escaped injury, my car was totaled, and they never caught the guy that hit me.  But the sound kept waking me up in the middle of the night for a while.

The attempted breathing sounds of a five year old that had ran out in front of a car leaving brain matter on the car.

The more I think about this the more I don’t think I will participate in threads like this any more. 

 

No offense, but metal on metal definitely is not the worst sounds I have heard.

Can't top any  of these, but the sound of your dog vomiting in the middle of the night will wake you up quickly

I'd have to say a car wreck, been in a few of those. Thankfully there were never any casualties other than some glass and sheet metal.

Fisher cat

 

 

Fishers have made a comeback in our area of South West PA. Now a couple times a year we get a call of “a woman screaming in the woods”  it’s this animal.

:ph34r:   With any firearm, a BANG when expecting a click (when supposedly DRY firing), or a Click when expecting a bang.

 

      Recently, the sound of an earthquake, a BIG one , and real (too) close....  difficult to describe, but unforgettable.
