    Reminds me of the Cyril M. Kornbluth short story “The Marching Morons”; in an Idiocracy future, in order to convince people that their cars go really fast, when they step on the accelerator a jet engine noise plays, completely unrelated to the actual relatively slow acceleration.

    Kinda like those present day buzz bomb mufflers people will bolt to their crappy cars. God do I hate that noise.

    This would be great if it included the sound of “peeling rubber”. I’d use it just before walking out of a boring meeting.
