Can someone explain what the whole laurel and yanny thing is I’m confused
@tlong5456, I googled it because I also wondered earlier today...apparently the word laurel and yanny sound the same? Not sure how
@tlong5456, no, because it’s a stupid waste of your time and you should go do something else
@tlong5456, there’s an audio clip going around that different people hear laurel or Yanny. Leading theories are that different speakers, ear shapes, and ages cause people to pick up different tones and frequencies from the audio - leading to the laurel vs yanny debate. An expert analyzed the audio and found the audio waveform more closely matches Laurel, and that it had the L sound in it so it is probably laurel. But, like the blue and gold dress thing, people argue about which one it is.
@GiantDwarf01, so basically it’s just some stupid bulls**t that people are arguing over
@tlong5456, you just described 90% of the internet, but yep.
@GiantDwarf01, ya at this point I identify as a trans waffle that shoots gorillas that wears a blue and white dress that needs hearing aids f**k it I’m voting for a potato next election cause that’s a thing apparently just cause I said it was downvote all you want this has gotten so bad😂
@GiantDwarf01, 90%? I think you underestimate the volume of porn on the Internet.
@tlong5456, well, I'm also voting for a potato, since I'm allergic to carrots
@GiantDwarf01, if you mess with eq as you're listening, the more bass you have, the more likely you'll hear Laurel. If you turn down the bass and up the treble, then it's easier to hear yanny
@GiantDwarf01, that and the guy who created the audio clip claimed it said laurel originally, he just overlaid some stuff over it.
@GiantDwarf01, the audio clip was recorded by someone on a cheap microphone of a website that pronounces words. It was for the word laurel so it does say that. But the bad audio quality distorts it and yanny can be heard because of higher frequencies in the audio. Technically both can be heard if you isolate high and low frequencies.
@GiantDwarf01, i still hear yanny...am i the green/orange dress group?
Why not both?
