The Hum

Has anyone heard of this very weird global health phenomenon called “The Hum“? Very weird. Apparently, hundreds of people around the world –typically around certain geographical loci (in Canada, cases are clustered in Vancouver, for example)– are being driven crazy by a very low frequency humming noise that no one else can hear.

You can listen to a simulation of the sound here.

And this fellow claims to have recorded The Hum here.

Pretty weird, huh? Several explanations have been proposed, running that gamut from medical to environmental to psychological.

Hmm, maybe it’s a precursor to spontaneous human combustion? Who knows? Well, the BBC reports that there is now some evidence that the culprit might be oversensitive hearing.
