    Why do we cringe when we hear nails scratching a chalkboard?

    How come some sounds (like nails scraping a chalkboard) make us cringe? It is not very loud but it makes us feel icky in our head?

    Personally, I think about me doing that and my nails bending backwards...and I cringe...
    Who sets the standards, who sets the lines? Who keeps feeding us ethnic separation, tax levels and levels of occupation? We're all significant parts in this universal creation...

    Who sets the standards, who sets the lines? Who you, or do they rule ya mind?

    That doesn't bother me. What does make my skin crawl though:

    Styrofoam. any handling of styrofoam at all.

    Anyone who has a bag of candy, chips etc. that reaches in and makes the crinkle noise every 25 seconds. I turn red on this one. I almost belted a guy on the train for this at 6 in the morning. Every 15 seconds, Crinkle, Crinkle, Crinkle. I turned around and said in the most threatening way possible, "Take them all out and throw the bag away, now."

    It's the high frequency. Squeaky styrofoam cups do the same thing for me as nails on a blackboard.

    nails scratching a chalkboard don't affect me at all

    what really bothers me is when someone slides any two pieces of metal together, a cook sliding his knives together or whatever...i just want to take it and stab their head....

    None of the things metioned yet bother me, but when people walk in courdory or windbreakers and make that whoosh, whoosh sound they get on my nerves in about .00000000268465820945867 seconds.
    Furthermore, if I want the advice of a retard, I'll slap you on the back of the head and wake up that little peg legged hamster that operates the drool-powered waterwheel of thought in there. Until then, sit in the corner and wait until I either speak to you or spit at you. -mASF

    AHHHH!

    And it's not just candy! It's everything! Everything is so f*cking hard to open! At some point they started using Space Shuttle Heat Shield Tile Certified glue on everything, because the bag itself rips at about 25% of the force needed to open the glued together part.

    And don't even get me started on blister packs.

    Scratching my nails on concrete walls make my spine shiver. Even thinking about it does as well.
