Every once in a while somthing happens that I want to post just because it is funny, so I thought I would start a new topic for that. :) (if there is not already?)

Earlier today I was going to start listening to an book off LV and decided to close my window first, so I turned around and suddenly a deep male voice started talking behind me. It is a very awkward angle that I have to lean to close/open my window, well it startled me so much I slipped and fell down (I was also 'alone' younger siblings being the only other people in the house) appeantly a had pressed play, and it happened to be a male with a deep, rather scary if your ot expecting it, kind of voice :lol:

Oh my goodness! Haha. I can just see myself doing that. WOW... lol...yeah....that would be slightly unnerving....although I am surprised that there's a "deep male voice" on LV...I haven't really heard any scary ones. :D Oh wait... I did hear one that was just weird and creepy....but yeah...I think he was trying to make his voice weird sounding.

I heard they use a female voice to give instructions to fighter pilots in the cockpit, to deliver warnings based on what the instruments are indicating and so on.

Far more likely to be obeyed, the psychologists have concluded. That's mum, and you'd better take notice.

I'm listening to a nice LV voice on my mp3 player and suddenly a deep male voice sounds behind me, I turn around , no one there. Is it a ghost - no - it's just the mp3 player saying "battery low" :D . Catches me every time especially if I have earplugs in

Is it an American voice, or does the device come with a virtual Australian Down Under?

Actually it is almost incompehensible - but I think it's like the ones from Sheerness when I did a house to house for the council - they all worked in the po..eries. This one says "ba..ery low"

Maybe the recording doesn't use a native English-speaker.

Since this is just for laughs, I thought I would share something I almost did the other day. I went to a horse weekend and it was a lot of work, so I was pretty worn out. I drove out the the hotel to get something and I almost went to open my door with my car keys. :lol: Haha, yep, I was tired. :mrgreen:

Creepy! Poor lad!

I suppose looking scary is his job, but his heart seems to be in the right place. :lol:
