    Hm no one knows what the long term effect does to your ears.

    *10 years later*

    "Study finds that prolonged exposure to high frequency `teens be gone` mosquitoes causes early onset of chronic ear bleeding."

    mark my words.

    So they make kids leave one place so they can hang out and be annoying in some other place.

    Why doesn`t the city actually provide something for these kids to do with their time?

    And I don`t know why kids younger than 13 wouldn`t be able to hear it.

    Still, I cant help but find this to be a waste of technology. Why, all you need to keep kids off your porch is the Smith & Wesson Sigma 9VE Pistol with Semi-Automatic Double Action 16 round capability, with portability and ease of use, making it the perfect tool for any home or garden.

    That`s still ridiculous. Not ALL teens are terrible people who deserve to be driven away.
    Some actually WANT an education and a real life and don`t cause trouble, yet still have valid opinions and points.

    I dont know weather or not to go allong with this. Its both very right and very wrong to me. But I guess the fact that its effect is ages 13-25 settles it. If I lived or worked anywhere near there I`d complain, and if that didn`t work I`d blow up their soundbox with fireworks, I`d blame it on the teens if I was questioned. If I had to pass by that place every day, I`d probably swear at the owners.

    What the Hell?

    Since they haven`t tested the long-term effects of the this device, kids my age may have permenate (sp) hearing problems when we get older?

    Also, if those kids had any respect for people, they would`ve left the lobby when they were told and wouldn`t have to hear the noise in the first place.

    Also, I`m gonna be pissed the first time I walk into a building and hear that thing going off, especially if I`ve done nothing wrong.

    By the way, I plead guilty to having the ringtone. I use it to hear my cell in school. I just have to set it on a low ring level so it doesn`t hurt my ears. But at least I hear that annoying sound on a low level by choice, and not at 85 decibals by force!!!

    I guess that`s what outrages me... the idea of being forced out of a public place when I have done no wrong.

    Today`s society is whack...yes...whack.

    How can anyone NOT hear this stuff. This thing is loud as hell. I know people in their 40`s and 50`s who can hear this stuff. Oh, and this stuff has been proven to damage hearing. It should be banned.

    If you have this noise on your cell phone, you better not come anywhere near me, because if you do and that thing goes off, I will grab it out of your hand and slam it into the ground, and then stomp on it with my feet.

    watch, years from now everyone in that building will go deaf, or years from now their ears will start to bleed uncontrollably, due to the high pitched tone. They think it`s good now but since they dont know the long term effects, anything can happen.
    just like that drug from the early 1960s that was supposed to make childbirth easier, and the babies ended up being born without arms and legs.

    If they don`t know the long term effects it probably should be used.

    Any electric thing puts off a high frequency we can hear. Turn of a TV on mute and you`ll see or rather hear if you can still pick up those pitches.

    Live in a house for a week without power and you`ll hear the difference too (storm took out our lines).

    I think these things don`t work. We live with background pitches like this everyday. We learn to deal with it. Just my opinion.

    There was a time when I was in a lecture hall with 100 people and a student had a ninja ring tone. Only 4 of us looked around when it went off. Maybe I`m ahead of the curve. Lol.
