does anyone else hear ultrasonics? (high pitched sounds generally considered outside the range of the human ear) on a thread yesterday
, some MeFites said they did, and i always thought it was just me.

ever since i've been a kid, i've heard these high-pitched sounds that no one else seemed able to hear. most notably, TVs left on with no signal, but also computers, radios, various other bits of electronics. on the thread linked above, fivefreshfish, loquacious, and a few others pointed out that they regularly hear these sounds as well, and i'm fascinated by it, since i haven't encountered anyone who had experience with this. is this a common thing?
