Quiet, Please

Mental Floss shares this map of the noisiest areas of the country. Excessive noise can cause serious health issues. Of course, that doesn't take into account the content of the noise, which means that some noisy areas (Washington, D.C., cough, cough) are more unhealthy than others. Just saying.

It looks like the whole eastern half of the US is enough to drive a person nuts.

(I really would like to see this used as a reason for anti-boom-car legislation; there are a couple idiots in my neighborhood who think driving through at 2 am and making ALLLLL of us listen to their music is a great idea. And yes, it makes me nuts for the five minutes or so the car is there, and the half-hour it takes me to fall back to sleep)
