What did you say?

This might come as a shock to those who know me; I need hearing-aides. I went to the audiologist today and was tested. My ears tested perfectly, unfortunately my brain didn't. What this means is my ears pickup and convert sound just fine, my brain doesn't seem to process them correctly. I wish I had paid more attention to what the frequency was that the drop-off starts at; it was essentially the right half of the graph (higher frequencies being on the right hand side). This makes it so I have trouble distinguishing words, which leads me to misunderstanding what is be said or thinking the person speaking is spouting nonsense. I have know I have had hearing loss since I was a child, but I never realized it was my brain, not my ears. I was also under the impression it was worse in one ear than in the other, but it is the same in both.

    I should copyright my DNA. Then if I were ever sued for paternity, I could counter-sue for copyright violations for the derivative work!
