There has been a lot press recently about the constant buzzing at the World Cup 2010 games – it has been compared to a hive of angry bees attacking you. This ‘joyous’ noise is created by the vuvuzela and FIFA has committed to not ban the horns. It is part of the atmosphere of the games.
I definitely hear the horns, but for some reason it does not bug me at all. Must have been all that Rush/Queen/Police music I listened to when I was younger. I damaged the vuvuzela sensitive cochlea nerves in my ear – lucky me.
