*OT Laurel VS. Yanny OT*

I don't get how anyone can hear anything but Laurel. I've tried several different audio playback devices...

I'm convinced the people claiming to hear Yanny are just fudging with all of us.

That is all.

    I hear Yanny the first time and many times but also have heard laurel. So I think you hear what you want think you want to hear.

    Heard Yanny at first, then Laurel. Yanny is the high pitch and Laurel the low. 

    Now I hear both and pretty sure I opened all my chakra’s

    I've only heard Yanny.  What's interesting is that PBS just mentioned that younger ears, with more treble response, also hear Yanny, older folks hear Laurel.  
    And I'm an old fart.  :i_dunno:

    How funny is this. My wife played me this clip earlier when I was walking out the door. She asked me what I thought they said. My response was, "I don't know". She plays it again and asks my thoughts. My response was, "I don't know. I don't have time for this crap. I need to go mow the yard". I walked out and went on mowing. I never thought twice about it. 

    I open this thread up thinking it's about Yanni the composer and some other random dude.



    I had to look up online what Yanny vs. Laurel was. It sounds like it's the thing my wife tried to get me to listen to earlier. Talk about confusing. 

    Only thing I learned from all of this is that I need a beer!

    Scary considering I'm only 38 :)

    I blame it one noisy server rooms if that's the case

    I haven't missed his last 6 symphonies when in town. A very talented individual. Truth be told, I have no idea who the guy is besides the name. The only reason I know he's a composer is from my friend Wikipedia. I'm more of a Fabio guy

    What if you hear neither. Because all I hear in that clip is yarry or jerry. I hear neither Yanny or laurel but definitely no L whatsoever

    I’d suggest forgetting about it and go back to what really matters in this world, like MEAT.

    It amazes me how folks are saying “who cares” and “who gives a **** get back to BBQ” and yet half of this place ha become “Yay Trump” or “Boo Trump” and that’s ok. But a funny little auditory game isn’t acceptable. 
    Sigh.

    I hear laurel does it mean something what you hear?

    edit I googled my own question

    I hear laurel, and my wife hears yanny.  I have some hearing loss in the upper ranges, which may explain my choice.
