Laurel...

I know this is a bit late because I think this hit its peak early last week, but what is your take on the Laurel vs. Yanny debate?

I avoided checking it out as long as I could. I got enough of that gold vs. blue dress in 2015 and didn't really care to take part in this one. However, Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update sketch wasn't going to let me avoid it. 

It's funny because Katie just looked at me funny when she heard it because she had no context for what they were talking about. I gave her some brief background and that's when she said, "Well, I guess I'm the idiot because I hear 'yanny'." I was blown away because I hear "laurel." 

Of course, now I was interested. So I googled a bit more information and discovered that there's something to do with the bass levels of how it's spoken. When I played the video below, Katie heard "laurel" all four times.

Any change for you?
