Waterscooters and Muscleboats - our noisy enemies

What a noisy place our earth is today.

Waterscooters and Muscleboats - our noisy enemies

What a noisy place our earth is today.

Waterscooters and muscleboats...destroy our nature. For the nature it is a painful experience. Imagine if a giant would come and stamp all around you and put a loudspeaker in your ear and turn up the volume...could you hear anything?

When an aircraftcarrier arrives at harbour it does that with less noise than a muscleboat(those vehicles with awful loud sounded engines).

The archipelagos and recreationareas that are still kept intact are increasingly threatened by these noisemakers.

What lives between the ears of a waterscooterrider? A slogan; Just do it?

Try to talk with your friend who is situated beside you. You can not hear him. Because of the noise.

You live in the city. You are obliged to hear awful lot of all kinds of crap, mainly noises made up of aggressive selling of fashionclothes, hamburgers, commercials etc. The noise comes out of virtually every corner today. Even the public bathing areas and recreation areas are filled up with this ear-tearing noise. If there is a risk to suffocate in a plastic bag, then there is a risk to get a serious damage in your soul, mentalhealth, and the balance of life in general.

But the problem is that a large part of the youth today, don`t seem to regard this issue as a problem. Why? Because they are mentally stuck with the noise. The beauty of silence has become something very strange, alienated for many, even uncomfortable. The noisy brainwash has caused damage to these people, and they are not able to admit this to themselves. That is something that you could call for REAL EXPLOITATION.

If we want to change this, we better start doing something about it right away. To begin with, first step is to turn to the administrators of the beaches and tell them to shut down the noise.

Then we need a massive campaigning against these monstruous noisemakers. New commercials(alternative commercials), hijacking of websites, and if necessary sinking of these vehicles.

But we better start immediately, unless we want the coming generations to ask

as zombies; Louder, I can`t hear you! Could you repeat that. I can`t hear you.



..............................................we better do it now, before the world becomes a deaf patient.
