comment Why is the sound of fingernails on a chalkboard so intolerable?
Hmm... it's sudden like the fire truck you refer to, but much more painful. It's not merely a matter of volume... even the slightest squeak of it is painful, and certainly louder is more painful. It doesn't go through my whole body, really... I mean, I react, but the pain is localized to my hearing. That's the best way to describe it. Like most people with nails on a chalkboard.
