    There is a favorite smells thread floating around, and I feel like I'm asking a Major Metal question

    There is something about the sound of a Zippo closing. I don't know what it is but for some reason it is one of my favorite sounds.

    Anybody else have any quirky auditory fixations?

    -silence
    -the sounds of the morning
    -some non-tb-safe ways of my name being said
    -the sound of rushing down a mountain on a bike
    -The sudden moment of silence when your in the air during a downhill run
    -the sound of my motorcycle. When I ride it its the only time I don't listen to music

  8. +1 on the Zippo closing sound but I no longer smoke so carrying a zippo let alone opening and closing it does not happen any more.
    I do love the sound of a ship's bell in the distance, especially on a foggy night.

    I like turtles.
    All of the sounds mentioned above are cool. One that I particularly like is the 'ping' when the magazine pops out of the M1 Garand on the Medal of Honour games. I assume it makes the same sound in real life.

    I'm pretty sure that is accurate. Good call. Add to that; spent shells ejecting is a cool sound in general. (looks cool too).

    I'm glad you guys aren't responding with "P-Nuts Tone" or Envelope Filters. Keep em comin.
