It’s apparently just too stressful for most people now to tolerate quiet.
That might help explain the growing and barbaric practice of installing televisions and other electronic noisemakers wherever people are trapped waiting for a service.

Sarah Jorgenson said, “I was so scrawny in high school, but now I’ve gained at least 15 pounds. I have pudge for the first time in my life.”
