I am reblogging this because it is intriguing and I don’t know what to think about it. A worldwide hum? It is not quite worldwide as it seems to other the ears of the wealthy North Americans and Europeans more that any other people. Is it a hoax? A First World Problem? What do you think?

The ‘Hum’ is a low-pitched sound heard in numerous places worldwide, especially in the USA, UK, and northern Europe. It is usually heard only in quiet environments, and is often described as sounding like a distant diesel engine.
The most famous hum ‘The Taos Hum’ was first reported in 1992, but reports of the Hum go back to at least the early ’40’s. Acoustic investigations have concentrated on low – frequency sounds between 33 and 80 hertz, but have so far failed to pinpoint the source of the strange sound.
Its source and nature is still a mystery.
