It's known as the Hum, a steady, droning sound that's heard in places as disparate as Taos, N.M.; Bristol, England; and Largs, Scotland.

But what causes the Hum, and why it only affects a small percentage of the population in certain areas, remain a mystery, despite a number of scientific investigations. [The Top 10 Unexplained Phenomena]

Reports started trickling in during the 1950s from people who had never heard anything unusual before; suddenly, they were bedeviled by an annoying, low-frequency humming, throbbing or rumbling sound.

Probably that's how they destroy susceptible people's brains to convert them into libtards.

Shit, they told me it was tinnitus

Low pitch? I hear a high pitch...does this mean I'm a goner?

All I heard in that video was high pitched static

It's just some Gregorian monks in the baseboards.  You kin lure 'em out with some fresh bread and beer.  Ain't a problem.

I've heard it.  I think it's a "singing sands" phenonmena since I've only heard in isolated desert places with the wind blowing.  Never thought it was aliens or something...  More like, "hear that?  Yeah, cool.  Night"

Lol. I was going to read this earlier when I saw it on Drudge, but I said fuck it, I'll just wait until I get to GD and read it there.

True story.

I've heard it when I was living in New Mexico, Germany, and during some camping trips into sparsely-populated areas in Arizona.

No idea why, hope it's nothing serious in the works.

ETA:  Thought OP was just going to share more of that backwards-whale-song hoax.  

ETA PS:  I don't think I'm crazy.

I already have tinnitus. If I start hearing a low pitch too, I'm fucked.

If you hear the hum, you're a werewolf.

I have pretty damn good hearing (get tested for work) and I don't ever recall having heard that.

I do however pick up on a lot of high frequency shit indoors that most people seem oblivious to.  But most of that I can attribute to things like light ballasts and other electronics.

Ice Chest Resonance?

A few years back that sound was claimed by many people. End of the world, etc. Well we are all here and that forecast was bull. Some people claim they here trumpets also.
Link Posted: 7/26/2013 10:05:20 PM EST
I hear the hum often, but to date it's only been in one very isolated place; the base of a hill that's located between two mountains.  There's a corridor of rocks that runs between those mountains that are riddled with old Indian petroglyphs.  Maybe the old Indians heard it and thought there was something special enough about it that they made their drawings there, or maybe they didn't hear anything and just took advantage of the easy to draw upon rocks.  I don't think there's anything mystical about it at all, and dismiss all of the supernatural bullshit that some folks get worked up over.  I figure that it's just some low frequency vibrations that are amplified through a fault that runs through there, and I'm fortunate that my hearing is preserved well enough that I can make it out.  I'd like to visit Taos, NM to see if I can hear whatever it is that people claim they hear there and if it compares.

That YouTube video is the wrong pitch from what I've experienced.  It's a low bass rumble that oscillates but has no discernible pattern to it.  I wouldn't call it loud, but it would be very annoying if I couldn't get away from it.

This. I remember the video from some eastern European country and then the one in the woods. I sold my home, car, quit my job, and built a bunker in preparation for the apocalypse.   Still here.

Guess I better give it another go.

No no.  If God where to whisper FBHO into someone's ear it would sound exactly like the Star Spangled Banner

I've been dealing with an older woman who claims to hear it.

Her hearing the hum is making ME fucking crazy

Crazy people hear a mysterious hum?
Link Posted: 7/27/2013 4:26:59 AM EST
Yes, I hear a hum in SE Pennsylvania, Philly metro area.  I hear it at night when I'm lying in bed and in silence.  It's very annoying, so I have to sleep with a fan on.  My wife can't hear it.

I attribute the noise to high-altitude aircraft, but I have no idea whether that's correct.

Generally, the Hum is only heard indoors, and it's louder at night than during the day.

I heard it on the devils highway AZ.  many nights.

Assumed it was California getting ready to fall in the ocean.

Monotonous, aggravating and annoying sounds.

Last year we were hearing it quite a bit but I haven't noticed it since winter.  It was plainly noticeable here for several months last year and a regular topic around town.  

Haliburton must have finally figured out how to fine-tune the frequencies correctly on the hurricane machine.
