Yanny or Laurel?

Postby Niner » Wed May 16, 2018 9:00 pm

By now this isn't news. Seems a recorded sound either sounds like "yanny" or "laurel" depending on your perception of sound frequencies ..... so it is said.

So what do you hear?

Considering how different each sound seems to be it seems unbelievable. What if other words could be so misunderstood........maybe when Trump said "covfefe" he was really saying something intelligible.
