1. It has been generally believed that when human hair cells (which transmit sound information from the inner ear to the brain) in the ear are damaged, it is permanent and irreversible.

2. In a Stereophile article by Zev Veldman of Resonance Records, he talks about trying to recover mastertapes that were submerged in a facility in lower Manhattan during Hurricane sandy. To restore them would be very costly, but they sent a dozen to Mediapreserve outside of Pittsburgh. They were washed and rinsed and whatever they did and it cost $2000 a reel. Nv16
