Why Would You Want to Hear Yourself Scream, Anyways?

A New York Times article about noise levels in Cairo. I think they should follow up with an article about whether there is a genetic component to this kind of noise tolerance.
Exhibit number 1: Egyptian hot dog vendors on Fifth Avenue.

Wael,

I am running low on commentors, as appears you are at the moment. How about we form a bloggers' comment exchange program? It could be about any nonsense like I am writing in this comment. Good idea, right?

Well, most class rooms in OECD public schools have noise levels above mandatory OSHA standards! Am surprised they could tell the difference, maybe they all attended private schools?

...Now for some humor relief. The New York Times seems to think noise is not that big of a deal. As a matter of fact, they think it's just swell! Ask The Cairo Calls! Please leave a comment, not a phone call. ;)
