p2pnet view Games | P2P:- I’m one of the millions of footie fans whose enjoyment of the FIFA matches is being seriously marred by the loud, continuous fart emenating from thousands of other fans in the stadiums.
Actually, it isn’t real farting. It just sounds like it —
— or maybe several squadrons of Stuka dive-bombers.
But it’s neither.
It’s the vuvuzela.
Says South Africa Info >>>
Vuvuzela supplier Boogieblast offers this advice: “Put your lips inside the mouthpiece and almost make a ‘farting’ sound. Relax your cheeks and let your lips vibrate inside the mouthpiece. As soon as you get that trumpeting sound, blow harder until you reach a ridiculously loud ‘boogying blast’.
According to a Slashdot post >>>
It looks like the horns won’t be banned anytime soon though. A savvy German hacker, ‘Tube,’ discovered that the horn sound can be effectively filtered out by applying a couple of digital notch filters to the audio at the frequencies the horn produces (another summary in English). Now it looks like even broadcasters like the the BBC and others are considering using such filters on their broadcasts.
But I’m not the only one who’s annoyed.
Speaking of Stukas, Hitler is pissed too.
