I SO nearly fell into that one..
Luckily I haven't got an Ipod.
Ipod, it that new verb for shelling peas?
What if the motorist has an iPod hitched up to the stereo?
Does that mean he can hear more than one that hasn't?
Only if he's listening to nothing
That's a waste of a good iPod
Aaah Australia, sound travels in the other direction there.
Heinrich Boll wrote an excellent short story in which a radio-station editor collects all the taped silences cut out of studio interviews. He edits them together into a tape so he can listen to silence.
If this fictional character (Murke) played his tape of collected silences on an iPod while driving, would he still be able to make a literary point about the post-war generation gap as reflected in attitudes to religion and society in post-war West Germany?
I think this is the question we should be addressing, not the one in the title of the thread.
I hope I have helped, but I fear I may not have.
What once was clear has now been muddied.
