Listening to a piece of classical music that I've never heard before with headphones:
ooh this is a quiet part. Maybe I should turn up the volume so that I can hear what's going on.
Me, three seconds later:
SHIT SHIT SHIT BAD IDEA VOLUME DOWN VOLUME DOWN VOLUME DOWN OWWW EARS STUPID CYMBAL CRASH OWWW
Me, ten seconds later:
ooh another quiet part -- let's turn the volume up again *repeat infinitely*
