    Pres Trump and the WH weigh in on the Laurel vs. Yanny video (very funny!)

    In case you don't know the latest internet rage, there is a video that's gone viral where the speaker is saying Laurel and Yanni - some people hear Laurel, some people hear Yanni. If you go to youtube and search, you can find lots of videos with scientific explanations of why some hear one and others hear the other. Not really post worthy on its own. But today the WH posted a response video that is hilarious. I literally laughed out loud - so don't be drinking anything when you watch .

    Here's a quick video to get you up to speed in case you haven't heard the audio yet - the original clip is contained within it (original video is on twitter so can't be uploaded here):

    I hear Laurel, my 4 y/o grandson hears Yanny.

    Our 18 and 21 year old both hear "Laurel". I can't even convince myself to hear Laurel.

    Laurel. It's nowhere near anything that sounds like Yanni.

    Loved the video!

    I hear Laurel every time. But DH has heard both, depending on the device, but he mostly hears Yanni.

    OK, I'll be the party pooper. Someone is going to use this in court in a case where the evidence depends on a conversation either directly with a second person or overheard, especially if a phone is involved.

    Oh, and I hear Laurel on the tape above, but I've also heard Yanny depending on the device. That is amazing! Or a spoof. Time will tell.

    I also hear Laurel on the first clip and Yanny (most often) on the White House one.

    Yes. Look for videos on youtube on the science of why you hear one and someone hears the other. As for the WH video, I hear Yanny too from that video but Laurel on the original one, must be the audio file being filtered through the phone and another video that changes the tones of the audio so we hear it differently on that one.

    I thought the WH video was hilarious and that it showed Pres Trump's great sense of humor. The liberals are complaining of course. What a hateful bunch. TDS at its finest. Here are some links if you want to see it in action:

    On a somewhat related note, half of the population can’t smell asparagus pee while the other half can.

    SOUND
    An Audiologist Explains Why You Hear 'Yanny' or 'Laurel' — Or Both



    MEET JAY AUBREY JONES, THE MAN WHOSE UTTERANCE OF 'LAUREL' WAS HEARD AROUND THE WORLD
    By JAMIE DUCHARME
    May 16, 2018


    An audiologist has an explanation for why everyone on the internet can’t stop asking: “Yanny” or “Laurel”?

    “This all comes down to the brain,” says Dr. Kevin Franck, director of audiology at Massachusetts Eye and Ear. “The fact that brains go in one way and some brains go in the other means that we’re all just wired a bit differently based on our experiences.”

    The viral audio clip — which some listeners interpret as a deep male voice saying, “Yanny,” and others hear as a higher-pitched voiced saying, “Laurel” — popped up on Reddit this week and quickly plunged the internet into fierce debate, the likes of which have not been since 2015’s furor over “the Dress.”

    Franck explains that the Yanny vs. Laurel debate likely hits on a number of cognitive processes that the brain uses to assign meaning to sound, though he stresses that he doesn’t know exactly how the file was made. (The New York Times reports that the whole thing can be traced back to an 18-year-old in Georgia who got the clip on Vocabulary.com.)


    The first thing to understand, Franck says, is that “Spoken language puts relatively arbitrary barriers around sound to turn it into very different meanings. Those boundaries could be drastically or subtly different for each of us,” depending on factors like our native language and dialect, where we grew up and how our brains internally process sound. No matter how minimal, though, these discrepancies can add up to different people hearing very different things, or hearing different words on different listenings.

    The Yanny vs. Laurel experiment likely exploits this cognitive tendency by forcing the brain to choose a camp, Franck says. He says the clip probably exists on a “perceptual boundary” that forces the brain to make a snap judgment about which word it’s hearing, based on the bare minimum of information. (The clip may also lack some of the subtle signals and vocal cues that make humans able to fluently interpret speech when they converse in real-time.) He likens it to the classic Necker Cube illusion, in which the brain interprets “a bunch of lines” as a cube facing one of two directions.

    “The brain is built to turn messy signals into meaning,” he says. “It just will not give you ambiguity.”

    External factors may play a part, too. Franck — who, for the record, heard “Yanny” — says everything from how well you hear to the computer or headphones you used to listen to the clip could influence its interpretation.

    “We all have a history,” he says, “and none of us are bringing the same equipment

    Laurel. Every time and on any device.


    And I love Donald’s sense of humor. I wish he were my friend. He seems to have my sense of humor.

    My wife says she hears Lauranny. Is that even possible? She's a strange one.
