    I would watch the world cup but I honestly find the noise so annoying I can`t leave it on for more than a couple of seconds.

    Why not watch it on mute you ask? Well simply because I don`t know enough about it to follow without some commentary :)

    I`m guessing you`re not a pro footballer who has to focus on a match with these drating things blaring alla round you?

    Strangely, my father has a plastic horn EXACTLY like the vuvuzela he bought at a football game... an AMERICAN football game in 1964. It was purchased and used at the Browns-Colts Championship game in Cleveland. We used to annoy neighbors with it by "buzzing" in the new year with it at midnight! He still has it around, somewhere...

    I want one but I`ve been told by my family that I might find myself "playing it differently" if my older brother finds it...

    And personally, they don`t bother me at the world cup. I have an innate ability not to listen to something non-stop and annoying (which I think stems from my grandmothers` influences cos neither of them shut up... my dad has a very similar ability) so they don`t bother me :-)

    I`ve tried tuning them out during the matches, with varying degrees of success. It was wierd during the recent North Korea game when the crowd blew them not in a constant buzz, but in very loud waves, like someone frequently opening the door to see if the killer mutant bee swarm had gone away yet.

    I didn`t know they had football fans in South Africa. Do they have their own team or do they just route for American teams like the Giants or Stealers or somethin?

    If I recall correctly, prolonged exposure to noise levels starting between 80-90 decibels will cause hearing damage. I feel sorry for the people in the stadiums.

    "it makes the world cup sooo hard to watch"

    not really, its a `buzzing` in the background, easily ignored

    I like their exaggeration of 30,000 compared to 800,000, its more than 1/6th of the bar - closer to 1/4 (200,000); when in reality it should be 1/24th of the bar
