I just learned that car airbags can make you lose most of your hearing. I saw a tv show called making the movie: jackass 2, and the guys on the show set off an airbag for a prank. After it was set off they were all holding their ears yelling "ow that hurt!!". I then searched google and learned that airbags can cause a massive hearing loss, they sometimes register as high as 170 decibels(even 140 is severely damaging) Just read this therad on all the people that complain of being deaf from airbags. http://www.hearinglossweb.com/discus/messages/61/755.html?SaturdayAugust1920060108pm I am trying to get my airbags disabled now. Id rather take the chance of being more injured than having the hearing of an 80yr old man.
