Noise

In a modern world, this may prove impossible, but I'd love to live in a big, quiet city.
  • no sirens
    • then how do emergency vehicles notify other cars and the neighbourhood that they're on their way? No real good answer to that.
  • no helicopters or planes
    • then how do we get traffic reports and get people to and fro'?
  • no clock bells or whistles (steamclocks)
  • quiet rail or electric trolley transportation
  • in the office/bus/theatre:
    • ringers on silent
    • people talking to each other only so that the recipient can hear them
    • no audible notification of messages sent and received (IM, email, Twitter, etc.)
