Re: May Randoms

  • My internet is awful, due to a bad storm I guess, so I can't get the link to open, so no comment....

    But we went to look at two houses today.  I would have sworn by the pictures, the one was perfect for us, (size, beautiful and charmy, mountain view) it was a crap hole!  I am so disappointed.  The other had an amazing retro bar though.  Not that that is the selling point, but we are seriously considering it.  Unfortunately, it is a bit far from my parents (they watch the kids when I work, take them to school, etc)

  • @galactickates I definitely hear Laurel. But they played it on the radio this morning and the first time I heard Yanny. Now I only hear Laurel though. How weird! What do you hear?

  • Plain as day I hear Laurel. H hears Dairy though. So weird!

  • @offtoneverland, we are looking in a small area of about 3 zip codes, 2 of which are multiple counties, which makes many of the house not an option.  We are trying to stay in the same school zone.   
    And I wish my dog just ripped up toys, she eats them!

    I was able to listen, and I hear yanny.

    The Yanny is supposed to be in a higher pitch. Does that mean I'm getting old and I don't hear as well anymore? DH feels all high and mighty with his impeccable hearing. I told him if his hearing was that great, he'd be able to hear both Yanny AND Laurel!

  • I am protesting by refusing to click on any of that yanny/Laurel stuff! I'm not surprised people hear different things. I mishear songs all the time, although I think it's the fault of the singer not enunciating. *cough* SiaCheapThrills*cough*

    I hear Yammmy but the base or undertone of the voice says Laurel or something similar.

  • MH clicked on it on his phone and it was Laurel clear as day. So I think there is some voodoo going on there. Maybe it actually randomly switches? I don't trust it now.

    I read that it was a recording from the official Vocabulary website, and it was recorded by a Broadway actor. I hope someone explains the science of why some people are hearing different things. It's a good recording and it's enunciated correctly, so who knows what the deal is. I don't know how someone could mispronounce a 2 syllable word like laurel anyways. *shrug* 

    ETA: This is so entertaining! I asked MH and he said he hears something between the two. He said the syllable at the end is swallowed so he hears an -y ending. I can't hear anything but an -el ending though. So funny!

  • I had that theory too that it must be playing different things at different times except my H and listened to it together and he heard something different.

    So I missed this whole thing the other day, but I did see an article where the person that did the recording said the word he was recording was "Laurel". All these visual and audio illusions lately are pretty interesting.

  • There is only the four of us. Chit chat died down when ladies moved to their bmb. 

    Mine was pretty good! Not as relaxed as I would've liked to have been, but nice.

  • Hi! I'm around, im just boring lol. We had a decent weekend. Did some planting on Sat while the weather was good. Sun had lunch with my parents and then Mon just vegged at home. Pretty standard.

  • @ljmoon6 @holly321 Exactly! There have even been studies about how most employees are more productive when working fewer hours! Or take more vacation days. That stinks they took away some of your PTO, @holly321 Was it a big hit?
    suzycupcakegalactickatesjrm_14nitnat007
  • @SkilledSailor, it is this year, but I just got 11 years there, so I get more days in January, that brings my vacation time back to what it was, but sick is still short.  The bigger issue is their new enforcement of how many hours you have to work to keep your benefits.  I am not a healthy person, lol, I never call out between me and the kids, we have a ridiculous amount of doctors appointments.

    haha no @SkilledSailor This weekend, we are filming. It's production week right now. I'm pulling my freaking hair out trying to wrangle talent and get everything together to make sure it goes as smoothly as possible, but I'm loving every single minute of it.
