instead of scanning 10 pages to see if this is covered i'll just ask if anyone here has a reaction to loud environments...as far as many people talking about different things at once, not just noise levels, and what you can do to stop it. hard to explain the feeling. kind of like a 3 beer buzz or something, but not as pleasant. just able to sit there with brain all fuzzy and voices distorted. maybe that's not a good description, but i figure that if anyone would have a guess as to what i'm talking about i might find them here. cheers!
