What was that noise

Saturday night, Hampstead Heath, there was a kind of buzzing noise. It was hard to tell exactly where it was coming from but it sounded like the trees and bushes. The noise would rise and fall in volume, possible explanations we considered:

Someone snoring
Drone in the distance
Something else that flies, like a mosquito
Big vibrator
Big flying vibrator
A ghost

Post other suggestions please to help me clear this up in my mind.



Really fucking loud meteor shower.

almost certainly not, but this helps with the process of elimination

there was indeed the meteor shower but I believe in space no one can hear you buzz

Have you got a weird doorbell or something?

‘Sometimes, after a meteor shower, people report hearing the meteors. Some exceptionally bright meteors have been reported as being accompanied by a low hissing sound – like bacon sizzling’.


not much to do in portsmouth to be fair, also living there probably makes you wish you were dead

will you tell us if we guess correctly

I don’t live on the heath and there is no way I could hear my own doorbell from there. Maybe somebody that does live on the heath has a funny doorbell though.

Is this a round of Cards Against Humanity?

That might be difficult because I don’t know what the noise was myself. I’ll certainly tell you what I think the most likely explanation out of all the replies. Currently it’s between doorbells and meteors. hmm.

This was an unrelated question. Don’t worry, I’ll start a new thread

i find it difficult to recognise you now ant since you changed your picture

It’s now transpired that doorbells wasn’t actually put forward as a theory so we can rule it out.


Sorry. I’ll probably change it back soon. It is a very funny picture though…
