It's Laurel! Don't even go there with that Yanny crap!

Both.

When I first heard it I heard 'Yanny', but then it changed to 'Laurel'. If I focus correctly I hear both now.

I hear "Laurel" when it's played at the original pitch. When the pitch is reduced by 20% I hear "yearry".

Same with me. At very first, I heard Yanny and then it became Laurel.

The same thing happened with that blue dress thing. For one second I saw one color and then on, I saw the other color.

I haven't clicked the link but I find it hard to believe that people can't tell the difference between one word enunciated correctly, and cheesy new age keyboard soft rock.

(This does, however, offer some rationale as to why some people inexplicably like Radiohead and Grace Under Pressure.)

This could literally be the dumbest thing ever.

Absolutely my first thought as well.  It was then followed by the realization of how much damage I've done to my hearing over the years.   :-\

What the actual fuck are you guys talking about?
I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

I almost added "Kiss" but wanted to see how long before that got thrown out there.  The Genesis is admittedly a surprise, but there you go.  :)

I'm not really understanding this hate. It's a harmless internet thing that isn't about politics. I actually found it kind of fascinating. A buddy texted it to me and said "play this for everyone around you". The following 15 minutes was one of the most fun fights I've ever been in.

Chino... you're right, it's absolutely harmless interwebz viral crap.  I don't think it's hate, but just the biggest fucking eyeroll that this is what grabs the attention of our society en masse??  I sometimes feel humanity is devolving.

 :lol It's not stupid from the perspective of science and general interest, it's stupid because of how something so small becomes a sensation that sweeps the nation.  I guess not different than a pet rock, or when I was a kid, pogs were a thing.  Sure have fun with your friends about it, but it's not headline news IMO that needs to be now injected into my life from so many different sources.  The memes have been funny though.
