    This article comes off as having been written about someone with paranoid delusions.

    Click-bait headline reads:

    Why Everything Is Getting Louder

    The tech industry is producing a rising din. Our bodies can’t adapt.
    Um, ok, so this "sound" is a result of the tech industry?

    It was during one of these strolls that Thallikar first became aware of a low, monotone hum, like a blender whirring somewhere in the distance. It was irritating, but he wrote it off. Someone’s pool pump, probably. On another walk a few days later, he heard it again. A carpet-cleaning machine? he wondered. A few nights later, there it was again. It sounded a bit like warped music from some far-off party, but there was no thump or rhythm to the sound. Just one single, persistent note: EHHNNNNNNNN. Evening after evening, he realized, the sound was there—every night, on every street.
    OK, background noise while this person is outside. Could be for many reasons.

    And then it spread. In early 2015, Thallikar discovered that the hum had followed him home.

    whenever he went out to cook or read, there was that damn whine—on the weekends, in the afternoon, late into the night. It was aggravating, and he felt mounting anxiety every day it continued. Where was it coming from? Would it stop? Would it get worse? He started spending more time inside.

    Then it was in his bedroom. He had just closed his eyes to go to sleep one night when he heard it: EHHNNNNNNNN. He got up to shut the window, but that made no difference at all. “That was when I started getting concerned,” he observed later. He tried sleeping with earplugs. When that didn’t help, he also tied a towel around his head.

    Each night, he’d will himself to sleep, ears plugged and head bandaged, but he could feel the whine in his bones, feel himself getting panicky as it droned on and on and on and on and on. The noise hummed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, like a mosquito buzzing in his ear, only louder and more persistent. He sensed it coming from everywhere at once. Thallikar began to dread going home. As the months passed, he felt like he was in a war zone. He wrote in a text message that he felt as though someone was launching “an acoustic attack” on his home.
    Ummmm.... yeah. This person is crazy, or at the very least, suffering from something like Tinnitus which is not noise from the "Tech industry"

    "boat & ship are interchangeable to USN sailors"

    Not to USN Sub Sailors.
    Never heard a Sub Sailor call his "Boat" a Ship
