"People are going deaf because music is played louder and louder, but because they're going deaf, it has to be played louder still."
Do I sound awfully old when I agree with this? When the cool kid on the train who blasts me with oonz oonz through his little white headphones reaches my age he will have to cup his hand to his ear and say, "heh? What's that you say?" to his children, like a sad old man.
