Remember Dialup? Not Like This

So this is probably the most weirdly creepy noise I've heard in a long time. And considering I've got a yappy wiener dog, work in the company of whistling marmots, and have kids who occasionally squawk like peacocks, that's saying a lot.

That is, of course, that good ol' dialup sound, spend up 700 times. Here's what it sounds like normally, for those who have never heard it (For those who haven't, this is like the Internet equivalent of sending smoke signals. Yup. I remember the day I finally got rid of that 2400-baud modem. Woo.)

And if you think it's computers that made this sound, boy are you wrong.
