Sound Advice

In 2003 it was decided that the decibel would not be included in the international SI measurement system. Named after Alexander Graham Bell (the first man to make a nuisance phone call) the logarithmic unit that measures sound has caused conflict ever since. For example, Felix and Frab, who have just moved into their mews studio,  are using it in their dispute with Yevgeny Huxtable who thumps out his piano version of the Tannhauser Overture all day long while Felix is trying to do his screen-printing. Tom Purdue offers to mediate, and they all meet at the local Coffee House.
