Aussies Invent Teenager Repellent--Nashville is Not Amused.


The whole continent is Banned from the Grand Old Opry for life! :wink: :smiley:

Wow, that’s old news. My local train station has been doing it for a number of years and it’s worked a treat. Now you can feel safe walking through the station entrance without fear of being attacked by thugs and druggies, etc.

In a possibly related news story, the number of Australians who have died by throwing themselves in front of trains is up 150% from last year. :smiley:

In the US, various stores have done the same thing, driving off hordes of drug traffickers by playing loud classical music in the parking lot. It’s cheaper than a troupe of hired goons.

Several subway stations in Toronto play classical music. It’s lovely and it keeps the teenagers away.

I don’t need to brandish my cane and yell “Lousy kids!” any more !

Now I do it purely for fun.

Sadly, doing the same thing here has no effect on teenagers.

I live in Nashville, and I won’t dine at places that play country music. It limits my selection of restaurants and clubs, of course, but the food’s just not worth it if I must listen to “She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy” while eating it.
