Outside my ninth floor office window several beeping vehicles erect the new Colorado History Museum. Sometimes I hear one backup beep. Then another might join in for a dissonant symphony of musical pain. A new-age jazz combo of electronic discomfort.

To make myself feel better about my auditory irritation, I'm making a list of possible sounds outside that could outdo the daily construction concert.

  • several smoke alarms with low batteries
  • thumping bass from a hundred teenagers cruising circles around the building
  • a parking lot full of unique car alarms
  • or the same alarm on all cars but slightly out of sync
