    nah.

    That is not the audio clip in question. I suppose if you incorrectly hear Laurel in the clip in question that vocabulary.com audio clip might sound the same. But for those of us who correctly hear Yanny, it's obviously not.

    We Made a Tool So You Can
    Hear Both Yanny and Laurel


    By JOSH KATZ, JONATHAN CORUM and JON HUANG MAY 16, 2018

    The internet erupted in disagreement on Tuesday over an audio clip in which the name being said depends on the listener. Some hear “Laurel.” Others hear “Yanny.”

    We built a tool to gradually accentuate different frequencies in the original audio clip. Which word or name do you hear, and how far do you have to move the slider to hear the other? (The slider’s center point represents the original recording.)

    Laurel Yanny

    As a matter of fact I do. In the meanwhile, show some compassion once in a while. Do you have to be a miserable fukk everyday of your life? In the meanwhile:



    As you know, I voted for you for funniest poster, and I'm stickin' by it. Mostly because you're a hump.
