The Hum

Most people find this website because they are disturbed by an unusual unidentified low-frequency sound that scientists now call the Worldwide Hum. The classic description is that The Hum sounds like a car or truck engine idling outside your home or down the block. Some people describe it as a low rumbling or droning sound. It is typically perceived louder at night than during the day, and louder indoors than outdoors. The sound can usually be masked by background noise, such as a fan or keeping the radio on. We estimate that 2-4% of the global population can experience this phenomenon under certain conditions.

The typical characteristics of the World Hum are that it follows sufferers wherever they go, and that other people in the same place and time cannot hear it. This may be a type of otoacoustic phenomenon generated internally in the brain and auditory organs, through mechanisms which are not yet fully understood, but for which this project tries to find answers and possible remedies.

Another group of sufferers have exceptionally sensitive hearing (hyperacusis) and pick up actual environmental noises, which other people either cannot hear or are not bothered by. We try to provide the reasoning tools for distinguishing between these two types. For the latter there might not be a universal remedy, since each case has a different source, which may or may not be possible to remove or silence.

This website documents and maps the self-reported data from people around the world who can hear The Hum, and also provides a serious and disciplined forum for scientific investigations and commentary. This is a volunteer, non-profit effort. Fund raising barely covers the costs of web hosting and basic equipment.

This is not a place for pseudoscience or conspiracy theories. There are no discussions here regarding so-called “Targeted Individuals” or microwave weapons. There are many other websites and forums for those interested in such things.

So I saw a video on the Rhombic Icosahedron made by Adam Savage and the Numberphile.

I thought I may try my hand at it and hunted for the relevant angles.

Found this site that has cardboard cutouts with the relevant measurements and layouts to assemble.

Pop around and have a look, most can be done with cardboard, though i want mine as an infinity box.

I was born in the harsh Australian outback, where it has never once rained and where is it is so hot that it is biologically impossible to feel joy. I was abandoned by my birth parents because they were scared of my abilities, so I was raised by giant desert wolves. My only solution to survive was to hack the sand in order to get the nutrients I needed, luckily the desert wolves were adept at programming and taught me everything I know about computer science. Eventually I evolved to have a computer integrated into my face, this reduced the latency between my brain and the computer. On my 12th birthday I was tossed into the desert ocean as a coming of age ceremony.
The wolves called this “if(wolf.age >= 12){ wolf.position = ocean;}”. In order to survive this trial, I hacked the desert sharks and programmed them to drink all the desert ocean so I could escape.
At this point I was officially a desert Wolf Alpha. I was happy.

2 years later something happened which changed my life forever.
I was watering the desert ocean when I heard it, the terrifying roar of the desert Lions.
I ran back to the desert wolf camp, when I saw the devastation.
The desert Lion King had given a ted talk to every member of my pack, convincing them to use the python programming language
Oh the horror
The desert Lion King took off his glasses and stared directly into my monitor face and smiled as he said “Look at these 1 line for loops”
“Python is for filthy casuals and always will be” I shouted, however my words fell on deaf ears, the damage was already done.
I turned my back on the traitors which I had once called my pack and ran, ran as far as I could.
I escaped.
But the losses I experienced that day would haunt me forever.
I’ve spent every second of my remaining life in hiding. To pass the time I make youtube videos and shitty websites, however one day my past will catch up with me and when that day comes, I will fight to my very last semicolon against the wrath of the Desert Lion King.

I also like long walks on the beach and puppies.

How real estate agents can thrive with PayProp’s rental payment automation

Automating rental payments with PayProp saves you time, provides security and gives your business space to grow. For a limited time only, we’re waiving our onboarding fees for new clients. Read on to find out how you can get the PayProp advantage.

Pain-free rent collections are an everyday reality for many small, medium and large residential rental agencies in South Africa, thanks to PayProp – the industry-leading rental payment automation platform. As a result, they can manage their existing portfolios as usual during the lockdown – and will be able to return to growth once it has lifted.


In the current economic upheaval, made worse by coronavirus restrictions on work, the safety, security, simplicity and transparency of PayProp’s online payment processing give rental agents the peace of mind that they can still do their payments – from anywhere, at any time, on any device.

In fact, PayProp’s value is such that a growing number of sales-focused estate agencies are getting on board too, adding rental commission as a recurring revenue stream to their bottom lines.

What is PayProp?

As an automated property rent collection, reconciliation and distribution platform, PayProp enables estate agencies of all sizes to accept more payment types, reconcile trust accounts instantly and pay landlords faster.

Above all, PayProp acknowledges that people are the cornerstone of any real estate business or transaction. That’s why the underlying goal with PayProp’s automation is to empower real estate professionals, not replace them – giving them the tools to do their jobs more efficiently and add more value to what they are already doing.

Estate agents are the unsung heroes of the property industry, and PayProp’s mission is to make their work easier and more rewarding.

How can PayProp benefit your business and staff? 

Remote working

Remote working doesn’t have to be complicated – PayProp users can access the same powerful service from home or from the office. The PayProp automated online payment platform is a smarter, easier, more powerful way to manage your rental payments, helping you to provide a better service to your landlords and tenants. Get the flexibility of receiving, reconciling and distributing all your rental payments in just a few clicks – anywhere, anytime and on any device.

Faster, better, more consistent service

PayProp enables automation of routine property management tasks, removing the element of human error from long and repetitive administrative processes. This allows your finance and admin people to work much faster and with 100% accuracy – at all times.

Rapid Top Line Growth 667x340

Rapid top-line growth

PayProp automation enables rapid and effortless business growth through time saving and scalable workloads – freeing your staff up to focus on growing your rental portfolio.

A year-long sample of transactions on PayProp’s rent payment processing platform (October 2018 to October 2019) reveals that its clients grow on average 23% annually by processing volume.

As a cloud-based service, PayProp also scales well. Payment processing is equally easy whether an agent manages five properties or five hundred, so they don’t have to worry about the inefficiencies that growth would otherwise have brought.

bottom-line growth

What’s further great about technology-enabled growth is that it doesn’t put extra pressure on you or your team or reduce your profits – just the opposite.

Automating your rental book with PayProp allows your staff to process more properties with less effort, increasing productivity while lessening workload. As a result, you can grow your business without having to hire more people, using automation as your profitability strategy.

value, business, property

Enhancing the value of your company and people

As a result of reducing administrative workload, PayProp enables your staff to focus on their core tasks: signing up new landlords, providing better service, finding great tenants for properties using the industry-leading PayProp Tenant Assessment Report, exercising financial control and increasing rent collections. When they’re doing this instead of staying late to handle payment admin or queueing at the bank, you can expect a happier, more productive workforce.

Payprop, business visibility

Business visibility and financial control

PayProp brings greater financial visibility and control to rental agents and makes it easier for them to issue statements to their landlords.

Because PayProp trust accounts are bank integrated, real estate professionals handling rent can track the live arrears status of tenants at any time and see which properties have problem tenants. They’re able to see which properties are vacant and are alerted ahead of time when leases come up for renewal. They can track commission and landlord income over time, manage expenses and draw various other reports for any timeline since becoming a client.

Knowledge is power, allowing the rental agent to seize any upcoming opportunities, grow their property portfolio and increase their rental commission income, while offering a superior quality of service.

What’s more, via the PayProp Owner app, landlords can see all the financial movements on all of their PayProp-managed properties in real time – and they can obtain professional statements, carrying your brand, hassle free.

Is PayProp right for your real estate business?

The power and flexibility of PayProp’s features speak volumes about the service you can expect, but the proof of the pudding is in the eating. The positive experiences of a wide variety of property businesses show the advantages of using PayProp to process your payments. Thousands of very happy customers across South Africa, Canada, the UK and the US can attest to that!

For a limited time only, we’re making it easier for you to join us by waiving our onboarding fees. If you sign up before 30 June 2020, we will open your PayProp trust account and provide comprehensive remote online training from our award-winning support staff at no cost. As a global company with a proudly South African heritage, we’re privileged to be able to support the South African rental industry.
