Forget Laurel and Yanny, Green Needle and Brainstorm will blow your mind

Forget Laurel and Yanny, Green Needle and Brainstorm will blow your mind

Lest we forget how such lighthearted entertainment pales in comparison to the freedom boner achieved by hearing the deadly power of a 30 mm GAU-8 Avenger rotary cannon, our military is here to remind us.

Take a look at the clip below. On Tuesday evening, Feldman said in a video that she was fielding multiple interview requests and searching for the original creator.

DeGeneres went on to say quite plainly, "The people who hear yanny, I'm gonna have to ask you to leave". "I don't know how this was made".

Back in 2015, a now famous image of a dress was posted online, asking viewers if the clothing item was either black and blue or white and gold. "N is similar to r; I is close to l". "When there is more energy towards the mid and higher frequencies, people tend to hear "Yanny".

Perplexed, she shared this with other students and the rest is history. "Age? How much time they spend talking on the phone?"

She said our brains want to "categorise" the elements of speech when they are ambiguous.




Beginning May 15, social media users were divided over whether the audio clip posted by a Georgia high school student says "laurel" in a low computer-generated voice or "yanny" in a high computer-generated voice.

"Part of the answer is the difference between listening and hearing". How can it sound so different to so many people? Couple this with all the cultural and linguistic ways we've been trained to hear certain vowels, and you've got a ideal recipe for a little audio illusion.

Yet making those adjustments did not change the word for some.

"Some people's hearing might be so good that they can start to detect the lower frequencies of Laurel and start to pick up on that, as well".

People who hear one or the other are certain that they are right, so the other side must be wrong.
