Mysterious hum driving people crazy around the world

It creeps in slowly in the dark of night, and once inside, it almost never goes away.

In that area, you would be hearing the sound of car audio thumping.

As much as some of you guys want to make light of it... It really is happening and causing a whole lot of badness for people all over the planet. It's a pretty interesting phenomenon and ranks right up there with The Bloop for me.

Railway projects boost Obama transit push

By Keith Laing
