Should sound in dance clubs be regulated? I just made my tinnitus worse last night. I'm pissed. At myself for not realizing how bad the result would be, and at the club too and the dj. In my view something should be done about it. Sometimes it's obvious that it's so loud it will without a doubt cause damage, other times, like last night, it seemed loud, but I didn't do anything about it like get earplugs. My brain was not saying danger danger, it's not like I carry around a decibel meter. I've been to this club before without a problem, so I know you can have fun without the decibel level being so high.

Your personal health and safety is your responsibility, these environments are targeted at young people with a greater tolerance to all manner of abuse (personal abuse appears to be a timeless privilege, or right of passage, of the young). You are really in the process of grieving for the loss of youth and you're looking for someone to blame and crustily seeking the regulation of the younger generations legitimate fun is one of the pitfalls of getting older that seriously needs to be avoided to attain a purer state of maturity - you've had your day in the sun, there isn't anyone to blame, it's just life.
