Now, curious scientists have identified what causes the noise and how to solve it.

Are these so called "scientists" actually getting paid to discover this Huge mystery, I can stop a tap dripping easily by changing the washer inside the tap ,less than 10 minutes work.and I would happily show them how to do it..

I haven't checked lately, but grant money used to be available for the most inane and insane projects/reasons.  I don't remember where I saw the list, but I'm sure Google will know.

Take the time to read things carefully. The scientists - they are scientists, not 'scientists' - were not investigating why a tap leaked but rather how a tiny drop of water falling from a leaking tap actually makes that annoying 'plink' sound.

Have you got issues with 'scientists'? And what exactly are 'scientists'?
