If you were to ask people what sound they would say represents Seattle, most people would probably reference indie rock and garage bands. Some of the less musically-inclined humans might mention rain or the phrase "vente mocha frappachino, heavy foam, extra sprinkles".
These people have obviously never lived in Seattle. The sound which represents Seattle, especially on rainy days, is:
"SKKKKKRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE-EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEIKIKIKIK... SKREEEEEEEEK SKREEEK SRK SRK SKRIK SKREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK"
What is that sound? That is the sound of ultimate suffering. My brake pads made that sound when the stress slaughtered them. Your brake pads make it now.
I have never heard another sound that causes me such PHYSICAL PAIN. Please, Seattle, your breaks are DYING! Have you never heard of automobile maintenance?
