Skip to comments.Mysterious hum driving people crazy around the world

It creeps in slowly in the dark of night, and once inside, it almost never goes away.
It's known as the Hum, a steady, droning sound that's heard in places as disparate as Taos, N.M.; Bristol, England; and Largs, Scotland.
But what causes the Hum, and why it only affects a small percentage of the population in certain areas, remain a mystery, despite a number of scientific investigations...

Hmmm. Haven’t heard of this one.
Mash this link for THE MUMMMMMMMMM ...
I believe it’s been at least ten years since we had a thread on this.
This is probably related to the “Russian Woodpecker” a device similar to the US HAARP system.
Sounds like my refrigerator.
I thought I was suffering from this till I figured out it was my neighbor SNORING.
The Langoliers are coming.
And it’s about damn time!
Everything old is new again.
Yep, I hear the hum right now.
Followed the link and I’m throwing down and calling this report as just more B.S. distraction from the main event ...
... and that is the socialists take over of our once proud Republic.
I heard it for years....turned out to be a train. It was so far away that you couldn’t hear the engine or horns.
The humming sound and rumble transmitted through the ground. As it went up a long hill, it would shift up and down constantly causing two tones of slightly different frequency.
Finally one day I was on the other side of town and could hear “the hum”. I asked the guy I was visiting if he could hear that. He told me what it was.
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm — I wonder what it could be???? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
That old-school. We new-school.
I hear too. Usually when the hot tub is in the filtering cycle.
They are NOT having sex with them women...(or each other - can’t leave them homosexuals out...).
My wife heard this when we were in Taos.
It’s all these damn droning speeches from Obama.
Oh, for goodness’ sake. That’s the Earth’s biological clock ticking. If Earth doesn’t have another moon soon, it will probably never have one. Look for a date with Mars. (Oh, Earth’s probably getting irritable and having hot flashes. Look for anther Mt. St. Helens.)
They don’t know the words?
The electric toothbrushes have reached critical mass in some areas.
I have been hearing the hum too, for years...and the voices. So, what’s the big deal.
It is obama Drones or Huma
“Its all these damn droning speeches from Obama”
THAT’S IT! NSA DRONES spying on us. HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM
She had no idea I played the video. I paused it without saying anything and she said it went away, then clicked on "play" again and she said "There it is again! What is that? Where is that hum coming from?" This is the honest truth.
It’s called infrasonic noise or sound. It is the effect from ground waves or vibrations, not air waves, and it is low frequency which may account for the hum or whatever. You feel it as much as you hear it.
Definitely working on Taos! I was through there this week and the flat plain West of town looks like junk trailer city and a clown town!
Wind Turbines ?
I for one have been hearing a hum in my head for the last 6 months... Which was alright because I was tired of the voices... Until the hum is now to the tune of It’s A Small World.... Someone please shoot me...
My 26 year old son just walked in and I clicked on the video. He noticed it. I still can’t hear it. I’m 59.
Younger people with better hearing can't hear it but us old geezers can. Interesting. Maybe it's something in their water, food supply, or air that screws up their hearing over a long time.
I don't hear a hum, just a gentle hiss from listening to too many chainsaws, snow blowers, and riding mowers without hearing protection.
This particular hum sounds to me like it could be the wind going over a rock formation in the mountains. My wife and I had an Acura that generated a similar noise when we were driving down the road at about 50 mph. It turned out to be a defective windshield being hit by the road wind.
It doesn’t affect me affect me affect me affect me ...
I think it depends on whether you can hear low-frequency sounds; obviously, your daughter can hear it clearly.
I’ve heard it myself in Taos - I was with two friends, only one of whom could hear it along with me. The one who couldn’t hear it thought we’d lost it, but both of us heard it quite clearly. There’s a similar noise here in the eastern Czech Republic, though it’s not always easy to hear, as there’s a small commercial airport nearby, but if you go into the surrounding forests - we’re near the Western Carpathians - you can hear it on a quiet night. It’s audible provided you can hear low frequencies.
Hope that never happens to me. The Meow Mix jingle is bad ‘’nuff.
Yeah, I’ll bet a lot of these reports involve trains, hills and bedrock.
The surrounding hills can deflect and absorb the train sounds, the granite could connect the low-freqs to the ground, where it could travel and radiate.
Is there a random electronic noise on that video? I don’t hear the hum but it sounds as if the recording equipment isn’t good.
Too many people lost the will to learn the words and lyrics to the songs...so they hummmmm.
I, my self, have pretty good hearing and while not loud or obtrusive almost everything hums: Computers, refrigerators, ventilation fans, trucks on the highway a mile away, power lines etc. Civilization just downright hums. Even lights make noise ( turn on a set of fluorescent lights on a cold day); I can hear from 20’ away in my office, if my wife turns on the lights in the kitchen, assuming there isn’t any noise to block it.
The only time it’s ever quite is when you are out in the country a long ways from the roads. Even then they seem to be planes passing overhead it feels like your in Lonely are the Brave.
That said I don’t know what these people are talking about maybe nature wants to get in on the act.
Ear noise, I have heard this for years. Like a truck on the highway but it never passes your house. We heard the voices too, finally figured out it was the a/c. Sometimes it sounded like ghostly music but a new a/c unit fixed that, back to just voices. :D
Dyna-Mo, Dyna-Mo, Dyna-Mo Hummmmmm
