Ha, that was me walking on water between the bathroom and the bedroom
How it all began
Kind of romance.
Blimey, girl......could you please use one of my skinny me pics
Ok, time to fess up, guys and gals......
Which one of you got this rat a visa?!!
It wasn't me!
Please let this link work on here!
What do you all hear? I can only hear 'Yanny'....everybody else I've asked, bar one, hears 'Laurel'!!
How is this possible? It's messed with my head!!
To explain the phenomenon Brad Story, Professor of Speech, Language and Hearing at The University of Arizona, ran an acoustic analysis on the viral recording of the computerized voice. He also recorded himself saying “Yanny” and “Laurel,” for comparison.
“When I analyzed the recording of Laurel, that third resonance is very high for the L. It drops for the R and then it rises again for the L,” he said. “The interesting thing about the word Yanny is that the second frequency that our vocal track produces follows almost the same path, in terms of what it looks like spectrographically, as Laurel.”
OK, so what does that all mean?
“If you have a low quality of recording, it’s not surprising some people would confuse the second and third resonances flipped around, and hear Yanny instead of Laurel.”
I hear Laurel
You hear Laurel?????
Nooooo, Stop playing with my mind. It Yanny, or actually Yenny. I’m with @Mango Chutney , the rest of you are weird!
It's Yanny, IT'S YANNYYYYYYYYYYYY!!! My head is so confuzzled My FB thread is now of very mixed opinions. Isn't it bizarre!!
Are you serious?? Of course, it's Laurel.
This has actually broken my head!!!
Yanny, Yanny, Yanny..... the rest of you have broken hearing.
Don’t worry too much about the state of your hearing if you’re a Laurel person. Variations in high frequency perception are normal between person to person. Women in general are better at it than men, and it tapers off with age in all people.
I have listened to it on different devices, in different rooms, at different volumes, with my head tilted at many angles, in the garden, with my finger in one ear, with a relaxed face, with a screwed up 'concentrating hard' face, and no......I didn't take selfies!!! But regardless of that, I hear yanny.....yet my kids hear Laurel
My friends have heard laurel, yet their kids hear yanny.
Males and females are getting mixed results, as are age groups....so you can leave your clam outta this.....it's YANNY!!!!
Well, my clam is loved
It's time to organize the parties of Laurel and Yanny.
It sure was! I'm not sure he's as keen now
Laura, get your stilettos on.....it's our party time! The other weirdos can sit outside in the yard
