Bonus Trivia

Why do the wires on telephone poles hum?

Well, it’s not the electricity or people’s phone conversations that produce the hum. The hum you sometimes hear is caused by the wind passing through the wires and making them vibrate to make a sound which varies in pitch depending upon the speed of the wind and the tightness of the wire.
