    Here is white noise:

    There are loads of testimonials, you'll be surprised at how good it is.
    I suggest you give it a go at least
    It helps with concentration and revision as it masks other sounds.
    Obviously don't put it on too loud
    I just tried this out today and was surprised at how quickly it got rid of a headache.
    Just trying to help

    I read somewhere that it was supposed to help with revision too, might give it a try! (When I get off TSR, obviously )

    They sell machines that generate white noise, but these cost upwards of £30!
    Apparently some people have headaches for years, then after sleeping listening to white noise, woke up without a headache.
    A quick google search reveals so many pros.

    Ah yes, you're right.

    Me, trying to listen to it and my sister:
    *gasp*
    *OH GOSH! NEW BORN BABY FOUND DEAD!*
    *gasp*
    *IN RAINHAM!*
    *gasp*
    *JUST OFF THE A13*
    *gasp*
    *NEAR PRIMARK!*
    *gasp*
    *IT'S BEEN THERE FOR 3 WEEKS!*

    Good God. White noise takes no effect with your 23 YEAR OLD SISTER around:facepalm:

    It can also make you trip balls without anything illegal.

    Well, sorta.

    If you put it on so it mask all other sound, lie in the bath cover your eyes with something you can sometimes hallucinate, ranging from just seeing colours, to patterns and even objects. Fun times, didn't work for me, but it did on one of my friends, and the phenomena has been reported on. I believe it's to do with sensory deprivation.

    There's a comment on the video that says:
    "I live in Washington State, it rains more than anything? else here, but its a very familiar and comforting sound. Relaxing and soothing. Beats the sound of the sun amiright?"

    I have an mp3 of something similar. Don't know if it was placebo or anything, but it worked.
    That rain video is just annoying. The sound of rain annoys me :pinch:
