    Another Controversial Issue

    Have y'all seen this one yet? It's an audio clip and some people hear "Yanny" and some people hear "Laurel."

    This is what we're doing at the office this morning...

    Gah, another 'is the dress blue or gold' thing?
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Yes, but this involves listening. I've heard it depends on how your different sound levels are adjusted, but I was literally listening to it at the same time as someone else and we heard different things.

    Geez, I just walked into our break room - this is being discussed on CNN Headline "News".
    I found you a new motto from a sign hanging on their wall…"Drink coffee: do stupid things faster and with more energy"

    *Note it is Laurel*

    I have seen a number of these broken down and when the pitch is changed people hear different things. Odd, but not news.
