Stupid ears.

What a way to start the day. This is the last time I ever take an online quiz just because Scalzi links to it. We’re the same age, but he tests like a teenager and I test like Middle-Aged Man from Saturday Night Live (actually, I suspect that just knowing who Middle-Aged Man is marks me as old).

From Blue Oyster Cult in high school to Bob Mould in law school, I went to loud concerts and didn’t wear earplugs. The worst was the Squeeze show at The Pier in Manhattan in 1986 or 1987 — I had great seats, in the third row, directly in front of a two-story stack of speakers. I couldn’t hear well for a couple of days, which even then I knew was a bad sign. I used to be a hoopy frood, but at least I have the memories.

What? What’dya say? Speak up! Damn kids.
