comment Is a sonic boom a one-time bang or a continuous noise?
Well ask a mod to delete this question then. I'm beyond caring now to be honest. If that's how anal this site is (when he hasn't even lodged a complaint!) then I want no part of it. No other StackExchange sites are subject to this problem. Thousands of articles have copied snippets from articles or blog posts etc and as long as it's properly credited, nobody should care. Ever heard of Wikipedia? Nearly everything on that site has been copied from somewhere else and credited with a citation link (without the authors consent). Has wikipedia been taken down? No.

@JessRiedel Thanks but quoting someone is not a copyright issue (newspapers do it every day). I did not take it from a copyrighted publication - just his personal reply to me.

I believe there's no additional sonic boom - there's nothing actually that special about Mach 2+ :)

comment Does a second similar source of white noise increase the overall noise level?
@GregP Thats an over-simplistic response. The waves will likely cancel each other several thousand times a second as they'll occasionally be in opposite phase. However the opposite is also true. The real question is what is the overall effect of the second sound source being added, as perceived by the ear. My guess is it won't double it, but neither will it cancel out or in any way quieten it overall.
