    Noise Cancelling Headphones

    So I get home last night from the bar. We brought home a bunch of new friends and decided to hit the pool. We were wasted and had a great time. (Send me a PM for pictures - can't post them here.)

    So the morning my neighbor decides Saturday morning at 7 AM would be a great time to get up a do some yard work. Woke me up for a while, but the wife and I grabbed our noise canceling headphones we got for Christmas and tried them out. After taking a leak we were both out cold again. I just got up and the wife is still snoring away. Judging by the amount of weedeating and gardening (crazy neighbor gardens to loud music) they really cancelled the noise. I bet the rest of the neighborhood is ******. I think I'll put fliers in their mailboxes about where to get these sweet headphones.
