Yanny or Laurel?

This week there is only one thing to know. Are you team Yanny or Laurel?

?Yanny or Laurel?

First, we had the dress that divided friends and family and now we have this. Listen to the video below.

And what did you hear? Yanny or Laurel? We did this in our office and we were all convinced that what we had heard was right. This is how wars start. I hear Laurel every time I listen.

What is really going on?

Numerous theories have been flying around the web, but according to science, we hear different words because it is a low-quality sound clip and both of the words have the same vocal pattern. If the words Laurel or Yanny weren’t first presented, we’d probably be hearing something else. This means that our brains will hear things differently based on what we expect to hear. JUST IN: apparently if you hear Yanny you have superior younger ears. Some kids can hear both.

Perhaps you feel like this is a big waste of time.

 

?TED scream should totally become a thing

Mine would go a little something like this: TURTLES AND TORTOISES ARE NOT THE SAME. TORTOISES CAN GO INTO THEIR SHELLS & HAVE FEET THAT ARE FIT FOR LAND. TURTLES HAVE FIN-LIKE FEET. THAT MEANS THE NINJA TURTLES ARE ACTUALLY TORTOISES. THANK YOU.

Hotels.com booked the longest URL ever to show us that they’re not only about hotels.
