The Top 5 Most Annoying Sounds, Affleck's Argo, and NEW ROLLING STONES
10/12/2012 3:00:00 PM
THE ROLLING STONES have released a NEW single called Doom and Gloom. It's the first of two new songs that will appear on a greatest hits box set called GRRR! that comes out next month.
There's been talk that the Stones are planning to play a few shows in the U.S. and U.K. next month, but the band hasn't officially announced anything yet.
So the Stones may tour to mark the band's 50th anniversary. The lesson here, kids: A lifetime of drugs, alcohol and irresponsible sex results in long, successful careers.
What do you think of the song? Is it nails or nails on a chalkboard? It turns out that dragging your nails across a chalkboard is NOT the most annoying sound in the world . . . but it's in the top five. In fact, it's not even the most annoying sound you can make with a chalkboard.
Scientists at Australia's University of Newcastle had people listen to sounds while getting an M.R.I., and saw which sounds produced the strongest reaction in people's brains.
Here are the five MOST annoying sounds in the world:
#1.) Rubbing a knife against a glass bottle.
#2.) Dragging a fork across glass.
#3.) Writing on a chalkboard with chalk.
#4.) Rubbing a ruler against a glass bottle.
#5.) Nails on a chalkboard.
#6.) Nickelback (I kid, I kid, forgive me Avril!)
The big movie this weekend is ARGO. Ben Affleck directs and stars in the true story of a CIA mission to rescue six diplomats when the American embassy was seized during the 1979 Iran-hostage crisis.
He plays an agent who plans to smuggle them out of the country by having them pose as the film crew for a science fiction movie called 'Argo'. And he even gets Hollywood to put together a fake production for it.
Bryan Cranston from Breaking Bad plays another agent, John Goodman and Alan Arkin are the Hollywood connections, and Victor Garber from Alias is the Canadian ambassador who's hiding the Americans in Tehran.
GO SEE IT, IT’S GREAT!
