******** . If you're deaf how did you reply to his comment?
#32 to #10 - hellfiazz (05/18/2013) [-]
They would probably feel the complete lack of vibration. That's just my guess, I really don't know anything about deafness.
User avatar #8 - nooc (05/18/2013) [-]
That feel when you have tinnitus and will never experience silence ever again
User avatar #49 to #8 - iloverapingmen (05/18/2013) [-]
So that's what it is

hey guys i have tinnitus
#76 to #8 - mrwishinman (05/18/2013) [-]
I know that feel, man. Feels bad.
#78 to #8 - anon (05/18/2013) [-]
I feel you bro.

i have tinnitus and know that feel
User avatar #486 to #8 - kasperscar (05/19/2013) [-]
Have anyone of you Experience when it suddenly explodes into it, like i lost all hearing apart from the ringing sound in one of my ears then today in the other. just curious?

the quieter and the longer I am in a room the louder the ringing gets always at the same pitch.
#25 to #13 - anon (05/18/2013) [-]
I'm sorry to ruin it for you, but that's not true. The reason why some people have tinnitus is because their tiny, delicate hairs in the inner ear is either broken or not straight. Whenever a soundwave of a specific frequence enters the ear, it will sound like tinnitus. Since this room is -9 decibels, there is no soundwaves, which means there is no tinnitus
User avatar #59 to #25 - turian (05/18/2013) [-]
you are retarded...
#121 to #59 - anon (05/18/2013) [-]
that actually is how tinnitus (typically) works, regardless of how atrocious that anon's grammar was.

whether or not you'd still hear vibrations, I don't know
User avatar #53 to #13 - vicsix (05/18/2013) [-]
I have something kinda similar, but I think everyone gets it. At random times, I'll go almost deaf in my left ear and only hear a high pitched ringing.

#60 to #53 - alderus has deleted their comment [-]
User avatar #71 to #60 - vicsix (05/18/2013) [-]
Yeah, pretty much. I think it's from listening to music a bit too loud a bit too often.
User avatar #197 to #71 - admiralen (05/19/2013) [-]
no, its from focusing on your listening to much, ears start picking up lower decibel ****
User avatar #427 to #197 - capslockrage (05/19/2013) [-]
No....... not at all.
Its a syndrome that can be caused by ear infections, objects in the ear, and other things like that.
#345 to #197 - anon (05/19/2013) [-]
they cant explain why i have mine, but it started suddenly

i neither listen to loud music often nor any other noise that would harm the ear, it just happened and ive had it for about a year now at the age of 19
#347 to #345 - anon (05/19/2013) [-]
also i was tested and have no hearing loss, also blood yadayada the only thing i got, which is gone now was a slight redness in the ear. which apparently had nothing to do with it.

How do I know I don't have it? I hear ringing but it isn't that bad and I thought it was just something in my body making the noise.

In the not too distant future, there will most definitely defiantly be a cure.
#333 to #8 - michaelb (05/19/2013) [-]
mfw i never knew it was a thing, i always assumed everyone heard a slight high pitched whinning when no other sounds are present... i've never experienced true silence in my life (as far as i can remember) and i never will
User avatar #153 to #8 - jonajon (05/19/2013) [-]
Dude. I tell this to everyone I know with tinnitus. Go onto youtube and search for long videos of white noise. Some people in the comments say that they cannot hear anything when the video is playing, they say its beautiful.

That feel when you are surfing the net, minding your own business on FunnyJunk, and someone mentions tinnitus, so it's the ONLY THING YOU CAN FOCUS ON FOR THE NEXT HALF HOUR!!!


User avatar #139 - infinitereaper (05/18/2013) [-]
Imagine the powers of concentration you could achieve.

Without information to satisfy your brain your mind is open, instead of hallucinating you could make visualizations manifest, and play with your subconscious.

Well in theory, I would like to try it.

When my ear presses against my pillow at night I can hear an echo of the pulse in my ear reverberating back at me.
It's ******* annoying.
#364 to #169 - anon (05/19/2013) [-]
I thought I was weird. Thank you stranger.
User avatar #172 to #169 - dubslao (05/19/2013) [-]
that's what that is?

ever since I was a kid
whenever I heard that
I imagined a guy dressed in this heavy firefighter-like suit slowly walking up these infinite stairs
and there would be a pounding noise everytime he stepped

it still freaks me the fukk out
#208 to #172 - kidsquicker (05/19/2013) [-]
Well 			****		, we might just both be haunted by a firefighter ghost.

i don't know, but that mixed with the rush of blood it always sounded like an airplane with a loose bolt to me, imagine how terrible that would be in-flight.
User avatar #199 to #198 - dubslao (05/19/2013) [-]
the stairs were also dimly lit
like
not kidding
a small five watt lightbulb every six hundred steps
the guy was just illuminated
it gave me nightmares
User avatar #207 to #199 - tigersstripes (05/19/2013) [-]
One time i dreamed i was standing at the bottom of them as they were flying through some twilight zone with a guy in a hood and trench coat walking down them at me. Hahaha nope

a guy in a hood and trench coat following me was always in my nightmares as a kid

Its always been zombies or monsters following me, or being attacked by a wizard who controlled tree's....i have strange dreams. I'm just glad the driving dreams stopped when i finally got caught in one....

Imagine how clear a fart would sound.
User avatar #160 to #17 - jtastic (05/19/2013) [-]
holy **** , the fact that its in a vault means you would kill yourself with your own toxic fumes
User avatar #235 to #17 - srapture (05/19/2013) [-]
I'm pretty sure that crap lining the room absorbs sound waves, so the sound of the fart would not rebound off there to reach your ear. You would probably still hear it slightly because of the sound waves that have a direct path to your ear or diffract to reach it.
#174 to #17 - anon (05/19/2013) [-]
You wouldn't hear the fart, let alone your own voice. Negative sound means the room absorbs the noise. You can hear your blood flowing because it can't absorb the sound from inside of you.
User avatar #311 to #174 - spartusee (05/19/2013) [-]
You're dumb.
User avatar #337 to #311 - harshy (05/19/2013) [-]
saying "you're" doesn't make you smart
User avatar #341 to #337 - spartusee (05/19/2013) [-]
Well I'm dumb too. But the room wouldn't absorb sound, it would not allow any echo or ambient noise. Or maybe I'm dumb and it really dose eat sound. But I doubt it. And grammar shouldn't make me smart.
User avatar #343 to #341 - harshy (05/19/2013) [-]
allowing no echo = absorbing sound
User avatar #346 to #343 - spartusee (05/19/2013) [-]
But it would still reach you're ears if you made a sound wouldn't it?
User avatar #349 to #346 - harshy (05/19/2013) [-]
no it would not

i don't even know why you're making grammar mistakes now
User avatar #405 to #349 - kahandran (05/19/2013) [-]
Alright listen. The walls absorb the sound, but you can still hear the soundwaves from an object as it hits you directly before hitting the wall. Sound does not need to hit a wall first for you to hear it. Any noise produced in that room will be very quiet, because you are receiving fewer sound waves than you would normally, but you can certainly still hear.
User avatar #350 to #349 - spartusee (05/19/2013) [-]
Butt doesn't sound bend?

I live in a free country and can do what I want unless I can't.
User avatar #352 to #350 - harshy (05/19/2013) [-]
the room is -9 decibels
humans hear at 0 decibels
the walls are soundproof so that sound does not reflect
that is the main reason it is the quietest room in the world
User avatar #353 to #352 - spartusee (05/19/2013) [-]
But decibels work like, every ten decibels are twice as loud as ten before them. Do they? That would mean that 0 decibels is half as loud as 10. If I am correct.
User avatar #392 to #353 - hektoroftroy (05/19/2013) [-]
no, decibels are a logarithmic function. that's not how they work.
if we assign 0 decibels the value 1, then 10 decibels has a value of 10, and 20 decibels has a value of 100. Basically from the reference point of zero, each 10 decibels is 10 times the previous value. -9 decibels is close to having a value from that reference point of 0.13 meaning that you would still be able to still hear things, but almost no ambient noise would be heard, and your voice would be very quiet because you would only hear it through vibrations in your skull, not from the sound reflecting off any surfaces

TL;DR: You can hear things, decibels are logarithmic
User avatar #492 to #392 - spartusee (05/20/2013) [-]

You'll hear anything that makes a noise... The room only prevents noise from echoing and prevents natural reverbs from occuring
User avatar #359 to #18 - welshdrag (05/19/2013) [-]
After a while you start having audio hallucinations, caused by your brain freaking the **** out that the ears aren't receiving vibrations, and replacing it with sounds you've heard before, like in a dream: e.g. laughter, busy streets, what the brain thinks should be there.

I had that problem at my father's house as a child. My father would demand to know why my windows are wide open in November.

"Because your house is ******* silent at night! Do you have any idea how disturbing silence is? If I don't leave those windows open so I can hear the slightest wind through the trees, I hear drums all damn night. After two hours I finally realized those drums were my damn heartbeat!"

My tinnitus would drive me mad.
For those who have never heard of it, it's an affliction that causes constant buzzing in your ears.
Not having anything to distract you from that sound is maddening. I can't imagine what this room would do.
User avatar #55 to #52 - walhor (05/18/2013) [-]
Yeah I'd imagine the same, I have tinitus myself and just going into that room would make me unable to even hear my own thougths

I know right. I got tinnitus at the age of 7 i'm 23 now and i've been living with it for a while. Honestly though i wouldn't have discovered my love for music without it.
