That's my problem! (Wifey says: which one?) The brain controls a 'dimmer switch' to limit the amount of input from the ears, to allow a person to tune in specific things, making it easier to stick with a conversation in a crowded party. I, however, have never really been able to listen to a single conversation in a noisy room -- somebody installed a faulty dimmer in my noggin. At least, that's my excuse, and I'm sticking to it. via.
