    I suppose I'm not surprised. Anyone who has gone under a bridge in a convertible knows the incredible noise just that can make. Roads are noisy places.

    Bad for the ears, but in a car like an MX5 or Porsche Boxter, great for the adrenal glands :D

    Luckily, that car has no driver so their ears are safe.

    Oh come on, convertible cars have been around for years and years and I've never heard of anyone being deafened by them or having their hearing noticeably damaged.

    Are these the same scientists who say Facebook causes autism? :rolleyes:
