    I heard Yanny the first couple times I've heard it, and then I started hearing Laurel.

    This is weird.

    It's to do with frequencies. People that are attuned to higher pitched frequencies are likely to hear "Yanny". Those that aren't will hear "Laurel".

    Last night I heard a deep male voice saying Laurel, but just now I'm hearing a robotic-sounding voice saying Yanny

    Not at all. This is something for the masses but not for me.

    If I would give in I would A lose time to listening it several times of what I'm hearing and B then have discussed on FB with others what they heard and here..

    Good stunt thought as it was even on some of our news pages and people are talking about it worldwide.

    Person would have been smarter if he would have hooked something incentive to it.

    Let us know the right answers on www.suckmyballs.com and monetize it there with a price or something + AdSense + mail etc.

    I read more about this. This also got to do with the age of your ears. Younger people have more chances of hearing yanny while older will hear laurel.

    That is the thing. I hear "Yanny" almost as clearly as you claim you hear "Laurel".

    That's what makes it interesting.
