15 “Scientifically Impossible” Places on Earth

3. The hum of the Taos

A barely audible buzzing sound that you cannot pinpoint can infuriate you. We have all been there when a distant lawnmower or our TV starts making a buzz and unless and until we don’t find where it’s coming from, it feels like our brain is eating itself from the inside. Now imagine the pain and frustration of residents of Taos in New Mexico.

Since the early 1990s, large numbers of residents of Taos have complained about a constant humming sound. It can be heard all around the town and has driven people nuts. For 20 years various investigators have tried to locate the hum, but to no success. Some scientist have hypothesized that town’s residents are “super-hearers”, who can detect sound that ordinary humans cannot. But doesn’t that raise more questions than it answers?
