Sniglet Of The Dayhallucitation \hu-,lü -su -‘tá -shun\ an audio hallucination, a perception of sounds that are not actually present

If you are into the many Scooby-Doo ghost-hunting mystery shows and games that keep popping up in pop culture, you most likely have run into a hallucitation in various forms of this media. So, if a tree falls in a forest, and nobody hears it, does it make a noise? Maybe it calls out, “I’ve fallen, and I can’t get up!” Any animals that might be around might hear it and chatter away at the disturbance, so yes it does make a sound, but with all the chirping and chitting and buzzing, what human could actually hear a tree fall?

Now, those of us whom have seen those paranormal hunting shows have encountered the hallucitation many times, only to hear the investigators quickly whisper, “What was that?” and to have it followed by some kind of deep suspenseful music. You want to yell at these idiots, “Well, doofus! I guess we’ll never know now, will we!” You might be better off joining your own team of paranormal hunting misfits if you want to find out what that hallucitation might be. There won’t be any sound or music effects team present to screw things up for you then.

Hard work spotlights the character of people: Some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some dont turn up at all.
