Can You Scream Inside Your Mind?

I can't remember where I came across this film today, but it was a welcome diversion. I've embedded the standard quality video below, but I recommend watching the high definition one if you've got the bandwidth or the patience.

(It doesn't look like the embedded player has the high definition button. Follow this link for some high definition good times.)

!!! SPOILER ALERT !!! Don't read further until you've watched the film.

I've discovered that I don't appear to be able to scream inside my mind (you'll have to watch the film to know why I'm bringing this up). I can talk loudly and sing in my mind, but screaming doesn't seem to be a thing I can do inside my head. I can replicate the sound the hero of the film makes when he "screams" in his head, but it doesn't feel like a scream in my own head. It's just a copy of his distant scream sound. Maybe that guy did have a super power after all? Maybe he's the only guy in the world capable of screaming in his own mind? Maybe that's part of the reason why that apparently telepathic lady was so surprised?

Screaming in my mind was never something I've thought about before this film, but now it is all I can think about...

Oh wait. Nevermind. Now I'm thinking about sleep.
