I'm surprised nobody brought this up yet. Maybe that fact is a sign of you all having gotten used to it: Artificial environments usually are filled with noise.

No, that's not the case. Lets define happiness; we don't know what happiness is, but we do know: It's not about the money It's not about the fame, the power It's ...
