All time? Those $#@%^%$ car subwoofers that don't turn it down at night I can hear 5 blocks away when I am trying to go to sleep. There was one that could make the pictured on my living room wall jump. MY subs in the room are not that loud! My insurance premiums are going to be buying him hearing aids and he will be claiming disability on my tax money.

Harley's with no mufflers. They actually cause me physical pain. Bikers are also mostly going deaf so they don't know how loud it is for the rest of us.

What is in common? No respect for others. Same category as the stupid ringtones and the telemarketer pause.

It seems to have been lost that the concept of a "free society" was to be free in your actions so long as they don't hurt anyone else.

Actually it's funny but comment #10 for the original article nailed it for me. As
someone who has in the past camped on the cheap and sometimes at the last minute I used a lot of styrofoam coolers (sorry world). The sound of the lid scratching against the cooler body when driving is one @&%#ing annoying sound.

Funny how many commented that mouth smacking and eating noises bother them.

Children singing en masse.....you know that, flat, awkward and dull drone that they produce.
The sound of "dump valves" being opened just for effect!
"Strimmers" on a quiet Sunday morning.
Guns of any sort being fired (just been to Capri in Italy and woken each morning by some **** with a shotgun shooting at songbirds in the woods)
English church organ music.
Babies crying on planes
Seagulls during nesting season.
People shouting for no reason.
