    Your hearing

    How high does it go? Mine is 16kHz, but I can definitely feel stuff above it and it hurts my head.

    Wasn't there a thread or discussion about this like, ages ago?

    Anyway, I can normally hear about 18kHz. If the sound is very loud, and/or I wear earphones, I can hear up to 21kHz and down to 20Hz.

    Supposedly after we hit age 19 it's almost impossible to hear anything above 18-20kHz, though.

    There are rumors that some stores play very high frequency noises to keep teenagers out lol.

    If I ever open up a store I'm going to burn it down for the insurance.

    Wait what were we talking about.

    I can heard to 19Hz (I think I could to 20... but I really don't remember that well) and I have 23 years old. And Toast can just at 17Hz (if my memory doesn't fail).

    So apparently my only problem is that I can't remember stuffs so well. But I can listen pretty well.
