    I put this here in the theory technique section because it is technique and there is interesting acoustics science. It could be about training your hearing.

    I can hear Laurel or Yanny at will, I can even blend the two words. It's because both words use different frequencies in execution, if you listen to the actual signature of each word you can hear that signature at will.

    Can you hear both words at will?

    I heard Yanny right off, but when they raised the pitch sho'nuff I heard Laurel loud and clear!
