Comment: As the following night-time TV report from Costa Rica points out, these weird atmospheric sounds have got people talking and networking through social media. If at least some of these sounds are real (as this one clearly seems to be, provided we accept for a moment that Costa Rican mainstream media are not conspiring to sell a hoax on their viewers), then it stands to reason that vested interests in maintaining the status quo will be doing all they can to ensure that people remain confused as to what these sounds really portend. Controlled 2012 apocalyptic fever is being deliberately propagated to distract us from the fact that something wicked this way comes.
