It's a pity but most people don't seem to be putting their whole heart into it. Let loose!

The show Freakazoid once gave some advice on how to react to this.

I didn't expect to enjoy this, but enjoyed this.

The playlist of people mostly laughing was uplifting.

The Circle of Life playlist is good.

Am I the only one who cringes at this? Maybe I'm too empathetic for 2020/1, but I hate it when children scream on the playground - I keep thinking someone is dying.

When it comes to kids, the trick is discriminating "play" screaming from "something is wrong" screaming; it's a skill, finely honed by lots of practice. I learned it as a summer camp counselor but most people learn through becoming a parent.

That cheered me up, bizarrely. I'm going to call in when I'm not worried about my neighbors thinking it's a real emergency. Gotta figure that out -- maybe in a park...? Because I am going to let out one gigantic terrifying scream

I love the project. Thanks!

(My cynical asshole takeaways, on hearing the results, are that acting is harder than it looks and cell phone audio is really bad at capturing screams. But, the concept is a whole lot of fun.)

I was not expecting to like this, but after listening to several of the recent screams, it was funnier and sillier than I expected. I too am upset by screams for the most part but this was surprisingly playful overal.

I don't think I want to call and add my own but I also get the desire to do so.
