It's Not Me, It's You

According to my decibal reader and Perdue university this is what the noise (snoring) next to me is equivalent to: 

Garbage disposal, dishwasher, average factory, freight train (at 15 meters).  Car wash at 20 ft (89 dB); propeller plane flyover at 1000 ft (88 dB); diesel truck 40 mph at 50 ft (84 dB); diesel train at 45 mph at 100 ft (83 dB).  Food blender (88 dB); milling machine (85 dB); garbage disposal (80 dB).802 times as loud as 70 dB.  Possible damage in 8 h exposure.
