Can you actually get hearing loss from a very loud human being?
Because of reasons I am currently forced to live with my sister who is literally never quiet, save for eating and sleeping. Today, she has been beating the piano on full blast and singing so loudly that me and mom literally have to shout at each other to have a conversation.
Can you actually get long-term hearing damage from someone making constant noise, even without sound amplifiers?
Well imagine working in a factory with lots of heavy machinery that make noise. Might not seem harmful at first but as it's constantly buzzing in your ears, the specific frequencies and dB levels slowly desensitise your hearing.
That's why your ears ring after a loud show or a night club, your ears compensate after being exposed to specific frequencies and dB levels.
In response to your question.. Probably not unless she's around or over 85-90dB. Regardless.. That would be terribly irritating and I'd be pissed having to deal with that constantly.
Unrelated to your question.. Why the fuck do people replace the word "except" with the word "save"..?? Is this gramatically correct somehow or is my frustration with people doing this justified? It just doesn't make sense to me to replace the word "except" or even a short form "sept" (or something along those lines) with the word "save".
Oh, she isn't bad at it.She's even gotten lessons and all. She's just very, very loud. Like, trained-professional-opera-singer -loud.
They don't want to guess how to write the word "except".
So you wrote "save" instead of "except" because you didn't know how to spell "except"? I suppose I understand the logic there but "save" isn't even remotely the same word as "except".. And to my knowledge words that aren't even remotely the same generally aren't interchangable.. However your response gives me some vague idea as to why people do this.. Still don't understand how this became a thing but thanks for shedding some light anyways.
me neither, and that's why I'm trying to get a job and move out and do adult things.
(in the past two years, she has made no attempt to get a job)
(she dropped out and moved back in with mom when she realised she doesn't fit in at college)
(she has spent like 1200 euros on Star Wars shit in the past 3 months)
They can be interchanged when "saved" is used properly. For example:
"This list includes everyone except the guy on the left."
"This list includes everyone, save the guy on the left."
While "except" has a negative connotation to it, "save" is has more of a neutral, "putting aside" connotation. So while the common use of "save" is as a verb, it can also be correctly used as a preposition.
