Seen and Heard
From our ears to yours…
It’s no secret that tweens and teens alike love to text message, go online during class, and stay in the social-networking loop when they’re supposed to be doing more important things … like, I dunno, studying and paying attention!?
As if giving your kid a cell phone for his or her 12th birthday wasn’t bad enough, he or she now has a way to abuse in ways you’d never have imagined. Have you ever heard of a Mosquito ringtone (also known as “Teen Buzz”)? Me neither!
As one ages, his or her ability to hear various frequencies weakens substantially … scary fact, huh? A mosquito ringtone is a file that produces a sound outside the audible range of hearing for most people over the age of 30. So, that means anyone in their early 20s or younger can use this sneaky, inaudible device and never get caught … e-mails and texts will be buzzing around like nobody’s business once school is back in session … mark my words. And the best part is, Mr. XYZ or Miss Clueless will not know what the heck is going on!
Try your “hand,” or should I say ear, at pin-pointing the mosquito ringtone … just click here and see how your ears have fared over the years!
