I do find my consumption drops by about 20 mpg if I've been playing Motorhead in the car

Totally affects me in some kind of an unconscious way. If I'm listening to classic music like
Dmitri Schostakowitsch or Antonio Vivaldi, it's way more easy to save some gas than if there is some heavy metal stuff or 140bmp electronic music playing.

Why, just feed the subwoofers with an additional battery pack you charge at home

One of my teachers at high school told me that they pump up the music in restaurants to speed up peoples eating process. Also as a conversation suppressant for the same reasons.

I did not consider that teacher particularly knowledgeable so just repeating what I heard from a random person.

Not sure if it works, but seems to make sense from a business standpoint. Get the tables emptied quicker to have more customers in

It also sells more drinks. If you can't hear or make yourself heard, your drink disappears a lot faster.

In my case it would make me turn away at the door. I don't want to make my tinnitus worse.

Since 12 minutes ago it ceased to be a problem though over here. All restaurants and bars are closed for at least 3 weeks

That's the exception, restaurants do that exclusively now.
There are sites like thuisbezorgd.nl that provide delivery services for restaurants so restaurants don't have to organize it by themselves.
Some sicko started a DDoS attack on thuisbezorgd.nl yesterday evening...

All non-urgent justice court sessions have been suspended also. And we do have the first inmate with a positive test since this morning.

Never mind, there's a COVID-19 thread. I don't want to derail this one.

I didn't want to derail the COVID-19 thread so I'm putting this here.

Brave Shores, a Canadian band. Their song Never Come Down was used in a video during the Presidential campaign. The 'official music video' sucks, but they did this one that I like for the low-rent vib and lo-fi video FX.
