<VV> Overkill/"sound" systems, dancing Corvairs and STIHL

A few weeks ago my car was vibrating something awful, and at first I thought 
it was an earthquake, then I thought something was ready to break off when I 
cam to a stop but the vibration didn't stop.

I finally located the source - a car about three cars behind me with the 
windows closed, so nothing could be heard except the pounding bass.

Once I was working with some power tools and realized what STIHL stands for 

Sonic Trauma Induced Hearing Loss !

What will this generation be like in 10-20 years with megawatt sound 
systems, headphones, cell phones texting, and cigarettes (they're not even 
smart enough to quit smoking and never mind STDs !!!!)

I know we were bad and don't ask who "we" are but we all had our faults, but 
maybe people should be required to sign medical waivers if they engaged in 
any of this so others who do not, don't have to paid for their medical 
problems !!!!

But I guess if the megawatt sound system is in a Corvair, we at least have a 
convert ?

Has anyone taught a Corvair to dance like the Hip-hop low-rider's do ?
