    Chris –

    I so agree about the gum. The constant snapping drives me insane – ever been in a business meeting with someone who does it? I want to drop kick them.

    And why is chewing gum so socially acceptable, anyway? Like anyone else wants to watch you chewing all day. Ridiculous. Even worse is when people “stretch” it out of their mouths. It makes me want to throw up.

    My wife and I get into “discussions” about this topic all the time. I resist the urge to throw all her gum away, although it is difficult.

    Soft sound sensitivity can be attenuated through audio therapy, but is an inherent disorder. Suffice it to say I think it’s best I never use a keyboard around you as I prefer the positive feedback of a Model M and Das Keyboard to the lame membrane action of modern laptop keyboards. I don’t chew gum so I won’t instantly be fired but I do enjoy a good chocolate bar now and then.

    I’ve an older Dell inspiron 6000 with keys that give good feedback, and are silent. I just received a new Dell 15r and the keys while giving fair feedback, rattle. I.E. all the keys are slightly loose and made of hard plastic and so rattle before being fully pressed. Grr!
