Ive been living in alaska (Fairbanks) for over 4 years. Ive never heard the humming or heard of anyone here havinf that prob. The only odd thing thats happened is that Ill lose hearing in one ear and hear what sounds like a high pitched tone.....usually only last for a few seconds.
Didnt think anything about it until now....might have to ask some of my friends if they have had and thing like this happen to them.

SoldierX has hit the nail on the head for me as well. Loss of hearing in one ear and a high-pitched (I know I said low before, but on further review, the low end is more of a perceived vibration than the actual hum I hear) hum that lasts a few or several seconds, again like some sort of EMW device is being used to scan my brain. Why? I don't know, but I could sure speculate about a few things.
Maybe its kind of like the Emergency Broadcast System does its monthly test on Cable TV.
THIS IS ONLY A TEST. IF THIS HAD BEEN A REAL EMERGENCY, YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN INSTRUCTED TO GO HIDE IN A CAVE AND LOCK AND LOAD.
Or something like Stephen King would write,
YOUR BRAIN HAS BEEN SCANNED BY NORTH CENTRAL POSITRONICS AND FOUND TO BE FUNCTIONING WITHIN ACCEPTABLE PARAMETERS. YOU MAY PROCEED.
What do you guys think is up with it?
What's the buzz
BARRY, Wales--Though he did not know it at the time, the idea came to Howard Stapleton when he was 12 and visiting a factory with his father, a manufacturing executive in London.
Opening the door to a room where workers were using high-frequency welding equipment, he found he could not bear to go inside.
"The noise!" he complained.
"What noise?" the grownups asked.
Now 39, Stapleton has taken the lesson he learned that day--that children can hear sounds at higher frequencies than adults can--to fashion a novel device that he hopes will provide a solution to the eternal problem of obstreperous teenagers who hang around outside stores and cause trouble.
