Feb 17th? and approaching Aug 17th, nobody still knows nothing?
The smoke alarms where I work flash and talk. You don’t have to hear them.
I used to give safety briefings. I remember telling people to watch out for our deaf colleagues to make sure they would get out safely in case of a fire.
Good point,proly true
You're right about God having blessed you - with (among things, I suspect) the wisdom to accept your shortcomings instead of blathering on and on and on about them.
Not trying to hijack the thread, but I am so sick and tired of the Hollywood and Washington types who don't miss a single opportunity to talk about their addictions, illnesses, slights by others on social media, etc. ad nauseum.
You are a breath of fresh air.
I would posit the device is not intended to produce hearing loss. I would think the living spaces have been invaded by a carrier wave that retrieves sounds and the hearing destruction is collateral damage. The Cubans are in fact, listening
Russian capability was attempted by the Cubans but failed in execution
That's made up. I"m not saying someone isn't claiming they suspect this, I'm saying, they don't suspect this and if they said so they are lying.
There’s also the possibility this might be our spies accidentally hurting our own. White noise generators can cause issues with poor settings and long term exposure. Some wavelengths folks don’t notice but the energy from the sound can effect hearing.
Way to go Obama
That’s a wonderful attitude. I lost the hearing in my right ear to do to a brain injury. The ear nose throat doctor told me that’s actually a little more common than people think. Vestibular system and all. But like I said, my left year is perfectly fine which is a much different scenario than you and I applaud your bravery.
Good on you! See freepmail
Time to recall all our diplomatic staff and abandon the embassy itself. Probably infested with bugging devices, anyway. Terminate all other “arrangements” with the communist regime.
Undo yet another of Obama’s evil legacies.
The U.S. officials werent authorized to discuss the investigation publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity. ........
More information “leakers”?
The obvious answer to this, is if they think it is supersonic or subsonic devices causing this, would be to take some equipment to the embassy that could detect it.
>>Ive always thought that my hearing loss was made a little better for me because I was born with it unlike other people who have had hearing loss for other reasons during their lives. Having never known good hearing I think it made it easier to adjust to the hearing I have. Other than that I get along like anyone else and never complain about it.
That’s an attitude that would be wonderful in a group leader/inspirational speaker for schools, who could lead discussion groups. THAT’S what I wish schools taught our children. Thanks again, Bullish, for just being what I wish everyone was. Positive and inspirational.
Obama is the “gift” that keeps on giving :(
