    I hear "Yanny" when it is played on TV and on my laptop but when it was played on the radio, I heard "Laurel".

    Very clearly Yanny to me. They played the sped-up version on the radio this morning and that one sounded like laurel.

    this is like that "is this dress black or gold" debate of years past.

    I agree - it's click bait, but I also welcome any silly or positive nonsense stories in the midst of such a rough time in the US right now.

    That said, however, I ain't clicking.

    Lol. Yanny I do not hear laurel. However, just like the blue and gold dress, I was able to get to a place where visually I could see the shift in front of my eyes

    Is it just a wind up? I can only hear one and can't understand how others hear the other, too linguistically different.

    Anyway, it made me think of the Liberty / Abby tape, where the man is saying that one word. How could anything be proven in a court of law if it's possible different people genuinely hear different things?

    Have I just been gotcha'd? If so my excuse is I'm knackered (11:30pm)
