They're called "fart cans" and yes they are annoying as hell. One of the idiot neighbors boyfriends can be heard a mile away because of the incredibly annoying high pitch.

It's right up there with some Harley riders that seem to have no muffler at all in annoyance factor.

I made my share of noise in my youth, but I didn't terrorize the neighborhood at all hours of the night.

Why louder the better?
I can't tell you how often loud cars woke me up in the middle of the night!

Then many years later when you got that sinking feeling when you remembered one of them was a Mickey Mantle rookie card.
