the NY has an interesting story about a british inventor who created an device that produce a high frequency sound  that can be eared only by people younger than 20, and is a prefect repellent.

the Sarkozy symphony ;-)

The device, called the Mosquito ("It's small and annoying," Mr. Stapleton said), emits a high-frequency pulsing sound that, he says, can be heard by mostpeople younger than 20 and almost no one older than 30. The sound is designed to so irritate young people that after several minutes, they cannot stand it and go away.

Are we going to an anti-youth society ?

Before, I would have been outraged... but now I am 30....

It won't work... Young people audition is worse then older people because of all those musical contraptions... (snark) :-)

Now why would anybody (even Sarko') want to repel youngsters ??? I would award it the prize of the most stupid invention !!!

Oh, great, treating young people like dogs!
