Can you hear it?

I had to listen to this to believe it, but there is actually a new ring tone for cell phones...what is unique about it? Adults cannot hear it. It was invented so that students could use their cell phones in class without getting caught. Go figure. Apparently, if you are about thirty or older you cannot hear the high pitched ring tone. My sister and I tried it, her two kids and myself could hear it, but she could not. You can read an article about it and see if you can hear it at this link:

Wow...I THINK I heard it, but only when my ear was pressed up against my computer speaker. I'm only 26! Wow. That's weird.

I'm still totally freaked out by this! It scares me to death that someone can make something that my children can hear but I am incapable of...
