    I see by that link it is a pommie thing...not really a "hum", just many kiwis probably humming "go hooommmme"

    I can't hear it myself but know a couple of people who can, one a very straight laced electrical engineer and the other my mother (they don't know eachother) so I don't doubt there is something to it. They reckon it can change pitch at times too.

    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I have tinnitus and it is an arsehole of a thing. GA tried to help me with reducing the effects of it but I never properly followed through and have largely learned to ignore it now. It is always there though.

    some of the meds I had to be on for surgery increased it to a higher pitch ..... love it ..... on the down side the higher the missus voice goes the less I hear ..... not sure if that's learnt or the tinitus

    I have has some success with a couple of others since then Rushy. Give it 2 weeks full on and also see a chiropractor then see what happens, what have you got to lose and what will you gain.

    Yep I know. Can't exactly remember the excercises but if we catch up at the Sika Show, I will get you to show me again.
