wudnt have taggd u as a popcorn person...

overcollateralisation said...

ok maybe not popcorn... didn't realise it went beyond 4 secs. don't ask. anyway it's definitely something burning. like really dry sticks. or really undry sticks.

Cold Bacon said...

you're kind of on the right track. but all of the provided answers are wrong.

overcollateralisation said...

sunny side up?

overcollateralisation said...

a failing zabaione?

Cold Bacon said...

you're sunny side up.

COmputer monitor (CRT)
ELectricity
A heating element
crumpled celophane or plastic uncrumpling
celery screaming

Cold Bacon said...

No, no, no, no, no, and no. Although I love celery screaming. I should do that next. What would you have to say to it?

zipthwung said...

a shower

Id ask the celery what its major malfunction was and then make it drop and give me 20

Cold Bacon said...

why don't i make you drop and give me 20? dollars. next friday.

molly said...

if someone makes a comment like, 20 years later, do you get a message that you "have a comment" on "so and so" blog and then you go check it? Or does it just sit there... i was going to guess a record playing after the song is gone... but i can't listen to it long enough to really know... it drives me crazy to listen past 4 or 5 seconds

Cold Bacon said...

well then i guess you ain't get no $25 dollar reward. :)

shannonononon said...

it is the sound... of silence.
simon says so. and garfunkel.

shannonononon said...

to molly:
i wonder the same thing about far future comments. but will we even care? will the issue be so far removed from our current lives that we'll just say "huh?" and shrug our shoulders? and can you pass on your bolg-ability? like when a CEO retires you get a new CEO... when the blogmeister "retires" is there a replacement blogmeister?

and one more thing... record player? whoa.

zipthwung said...

i just read "this bblog is frozen" on google. I was afraid to click on the link.

Freezing seems drastic. Mothballing is the way to go, really.

Is the sound sped up or slowed down? DOnt make me send the sound to QUantico.

Cold Bacon said...

the sound is 100% natural. although i will admit that i increased the gain on it so it would be a little bit louder in your ear holes.

Cold Bacon said...

plus my stat log says you were on at 6 am. i'm not even going to ask.

Will Heinrich said...

Fireplace? Frying egg? Pissing on a rock?

Cold Bacon said...

Fireplace? No. As to the others, my bladder is not that big. And that would be one charred egg.

seed pods opening
freezer defrosting
ice cubes melting
potato chips squishing
a powdery substance interating with water (clods)

Wrong wrong wrong.

Finway said...

Straw or hay burning?

Cold Bacon said...

finway's not really real is it? I mean that's just some made-up place from our dreams, right?

jake said...

you're breaking spaghetti.

Cold Bacon said...

that's actually closer than anyone else has gotten.

zipthwung said...

1) a "horsetail" being slowly twisted (the horsetail is a prehistoric plant that persists to this day in swampy areas).

2) Someone chewing on glass.

3) glass in a slowly closing vice

4) Ice in a vice

5) Some shit in a vice

6) Someother kind of shit in something like a vice.

Cold Bacon said...

sad

zipthwung said...

1) a plastic ruler being slowly bent.
2) cellophane
3) some thin filmy substance being "crinkled"
4) A sheet of Mica (the stuff in fools gold that is also used in some older electronic components) being stressed.
5) A sheet of nori (seaweed) being stressed
6) A "jacob's ladder" style spark gap generator (an electrical arc)
7) The shells of some sea mollusk being crushed

The Metrosexiest said...

zip, i know what that sound is! it's the sound of someone who really really wants that $200.

zipthwung said...

damn straight!
My day rate is 200-300 so that would be like a day of work. Not that Im working, but one must keep up appearances.

Put me in the game show man.

Dan1jab said...

kneading putty or some kind of semi-dry dough?

dan1jab said...

i take that back, it is indeed wet

Cold Bacon said...

oooo! you were closer with the first one. it's not wet.

Danny said...

husking corn?

squidlet said...

trillions of shrimp snapping their claws simultaneously? (see “The Book of General Ignorance” at www.nytimes.com/2007/11/30/books/
30gift.html.)

although I guess you already said it wasn't shrimp, so that can't be right ... but maybe?

Cold Bacon said...

no. it's still not. but i really like the fact that you entertained that maybe i was just lying earlier. that's wonderful.
