A Mysterious Sound Is Driving People Insane ?" And Nobody Knows What's Causing It


Dr. Glen MacPherson doesn't remember the first time he heard the sound. It may have started at the beginning of 2012, a dull, steady droning like that of a diesel engine idling down the street from his house in the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia. A lecturer at the University of British Columbia and high school teacher of physics, mathematics and biology, months passed before MacPherson realized that the noise, which he'd previously dismissed as some background nuisance like car traffic or an airplane passing overhead, was something abnormal.

Thank dog the sound is that of a car idling and not a trumpet.

Sorry, but if you can drive 10 miles in one direction without it attenuating or growing stronger, and then at a 90 degree angle do the same then the hum is in your head. Which explains why nobody else is hearing it.
