    Another one for dogs engaging in personal grooming. Had a dachshund who was the king nutlicker. His preferred style was slow and deliberate. I have three dogs now. They understand they get 30 seconds of tongue time before I can't take it. Screeching kids and women. Daytime women's TV shows are pure hell for me. An entire studios of screeching harpies who applaud for everything.

    People eating. TV commercials for food can make me vomit. Carl's Junior is the biggest offender. Yuck.

    I have very sensitive hearing. Can hear conversations from two doors down. I live in the barrio and can't comprende Espanol, so don't even have the fun of eavesdropping.

    I think the folks that don't like the sound of cats and dogs licking their privates are just jealous.

    Ewww.

    I work with a Snuffler. He's constantly sniffling, snorting, and making sinus-clearing noises. I can't sit next to him in a meeting because the sound drives me nuts and I can't focus on the meeting, I just want to pinch the guy's nose shut with a clothespin.

    The opening notes of Law and Order, or NCIS, or any of the other crime shows my wife watches OVER and OVER again.

    Screeching children

    Nails on chalkboard

    The sound of screeching brakes and a horn coming up behind me on the bike.........................

    The sound of someone's bones breaking. I always shudder when I hear someone crash and that distinctive snap/pop followed by some manner of horrified, guttural wailing.

    Squealing, braking tires anytime on a roadway. Definitely a "wince-worthy" sound of impending doom.

    Ugh. I heard a kid's leg get broken during a soccer game in Jr. High gym class - most horrible thing I've ever heard - thanks for the reminder

    Blackboards, brake squeals and don't forget the balloon friction sounds.

    For me the worst is getting my teeth cleaned with that high-frequency ultrasound waterpik thing shrieking inside my head...pure torture. I make the dentist use only hand tools now, I tell them Idc if it's a rusty chisel from the civil war, better that than the dreaded noisemaker.

    The sounds of the city, any city. Country sounds make me a very happy man.
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    From WAIT WAIT...DON'T TELL ME!, the NPR News quiz show:

    Peter Sagal: Now just those two beats were created by composer Mike Post. He says he combined six or seven different sounds just to get that effect. Among the things that you're hearing in that is what?

    a. A single shirtless man jumping out of a vinyl chair?
    b. 500 Japanese men stamping their feet on a wooden floor?
    c. Walter Cronkite clearing his throat?

    Bass bumping Mariachi music playing across the street from my house or the cars driving down the street. Don't they know where the bass adjustment is on the radio or do they do that on purpose?

    If it was just during allergy season I could understand, but he does it every single day. I think it's just become a habit or reflex; sometimes he snuffles and there's nothing there so it comes out as a dry snorting noise.
