    I read about this on CNN and thought "Hey, Liz is loitering in the office right now and not doing her chores..." So I downloaded a tone generator, cranked it up to 17,000mhz, and I thought her head was going to explode! My hearing acuity seems to drop off around 16,000mhz so I couldn't hear it at all. :lol:

    Here's the tone generator I'm using in case any of you would like to torture a young person.

    Using that "mosquito" sound is a fucked up way of keeping people out. What about all the animals that noise pollution affects? C'mon, there has to be a smarter way to deal with these kinds of issues. People is stupid.

    darn back in the day, we only had one option: tell them to GTFO. You all are fortunate. You can make them vacate and get entertainment value too.

    Every now and then I fire off a 17,000mhz blast and both kids reach for their ears. They're both threatening to call child protective services at this point...

    Hmmm I tried it, I'm 25 and I can hear the 17000mhz sound quite clearly. I thought this only affected teenagers? or am I still young enough

    I'm 25 and I can't hear anything past 15.5k, might be my laptop speakers though, I haven't tried it on a good set of speakers

    I've got a good set of desktop speakers, and I can just barely notice 17,000-18,000. I can tell when the tone is playing, but it doesn't hurt my ears at all.

    There's another frequency used which is 22,000 mhz and I think that's the one that only affects teenagers.

    That's a good idea bubbles, YouTube gold. I'm envisioning a backpack with a UPS battery, an iPod, and some decent desktop speakers on full blast.

    most humans can only hear between 20hz and 20khz our high end starts to drop off at around 25 to 30 years of age, i hate it when my parents leave their tv on with no signal, that frequency annoys me, when in school last year my hearing went right to 20khz
