The most hated sounds in the world

According to onlineclock.net, an online alarm clock service, some of the sounds that people like the most are the sound of flowing water, thunder, applause and laughing babies. This is not surprising, as those sounds are somewhat native to humans, they symbolise nature and appreciation.

The surroundings of famous landscapes aren’t exactly what you were expecting (18 pictures)

Mount Rushmore is still pretty badass though.
