Does anyone know (or can anyone point me to a link) giving examples of what sounds correspond to what decibel level? Just curious how loud 100db is.
Decibels are tricky to measure. A 5 dB noise reduction is about 30% quieter and represents a 50% decrease in the risk of hearing loss!

Ok, so I understand that loud volumes, especially over a long period of time, can hurt the ears. But honestly, since when is it the job of the government to monitor how I abuse my ears? No one, not even the French government, is going to stop me from staring into the sun all day and killing my eyes. Not that I would, but it's my right and privilege to abuse myself in any way I choose!
