What Does the Freezer Say?

How do you illustrate a sound in ways that people who speak many languages can understand it -on paper? A manual for an Electrolux upright freezer contains a page to let you know what sounds a normal freezer may make. The beauty of this idea is that it compares the sounds of the freezer to normal sounds most people already know. There's no need to panic about these, but if your freezer makes a noise not on this list, the best thing you can do is find something to compare it to in order to describe the problem to your repairman, like maybe a scene from a popular horror film. -via Metafilter
