Everyone’s favorite Canadian band, Nickelback, will be performing at the half-time at the Detroit Lions’ Thanksgiving Day game against the Packers. Everyone says they hate Nickelback, but the band has sold 50 MILLION albums, so obviously, a lot of people are lying about their distaste for the mighty ‘Back. Those liars are not in the city of Detroit. Angry Lions’ fans have created a petition to urge officials to choose a different band for the half- time performance. We’ll see what happens. Speaking of sounds that people don’t like, most of us agree that nails on a chalkboard, a fork scraping across a plate and squeaking Styrofoam are very annoying sounds… and researchers in Germany just figured out why these noises are universally panned. Has something to do with their frequency (2000 to 4000 Hertz, if you care), how our brains amplify those frequencies, how our brain then interprets these frequencies and how we physically react to them. Long story short, we’re preprogrammed to not like them. Anyway, there’s someone out there saying to themselves, “I like Nickelback and those sounds don’t bother me”… well, good for you, you’re the type of person we wanted to talk to today: WHAT DOES EVERYONE ELSE HATE THAT YOU KIND OF LIKE?
