The Yanny Laurel Mandela Effect?

Travel down this road with me briefly. Sure you are tired of this yanny vs laurel debate.. And yes, it has been ‘settled’ as much as internet memes and anger can be. 

A Reddit user RolandCamry posted a short video clip including the audio on the subreddit r/blackmagicfuckery this week. The clip was actually a video of an Instagram poll asking users to vote on which word they heard. 

We all suddenly got sick of hearing and debating after 18 hours straight of worldwide coverage. 

It went mega-viral after popular YouTuber Cloe Feldman tweeted it on Monday — sparking the greatest debate of the past three years, right after The Dress debacle of 2015 and the weird turquoise (OR WHITE) tennis shoe from 2017. 

The newest incarnation had families and friendships divided. Workplaces became cauldrons of debate and anonmosity over what word was being heard.

For me? It was laurel. Most of my co-workers heard yanny. My wife was laurel but my own son was yanny. 

Last night, two friends sent me emergency SOS messages. Their hearing had changed. They heard yanny in the bright morning sun—they scoffed at my opinion of laurel. By nightfall, they were hearing laurel as much as I did.

How many times in the Mandela Effect community has there been debate over song lyrics? WE can dance if you want to , or you? Did you PRETEND or begin to pray in church when you went California Dreamin’? And ...Journey? I didn’t stop believing but not sure if was a small town he or she that took the train.

All of these lyrics and words are subject for the audience’s interpretation and opinion. So often what I hear is not what you hear.. what I see if different from what is in your line of sight. Entire events look alternate. And when worlds collide and memories get fuzzy, our sense of history shifts and turns along the road to the Mandela Effect.

Perhaps those hearing yanny yesterday and suddenly hearing laurel later are simply the newest casualties of this strange phenomenon that science scoffs at and experts laugh about. The mis-memory of our time. The ultimate LIVE ACTION snappable instagrammable and tweetable Mandela Effect in real time: Yanny? Laurel? ....

Minus out all of those theories and scientific revelations as to why we are hearing two distinctly different words.. Trash it.

Instead? ... maybe you’re hearing the word that simply on your personal timeline.



Intrigue in China: Where is Fan Bingbing

From CNN:

Fan Bingbing, one of China's highest-paid and most bankable stars, has appeared in both Chinese and Western films, including the multimillion-dollar X-Men franchise. Across the country, her face once adorned thousands of advertisements, her star power used to sell a galaxy of luxury brands, from Cartier to Louis Vuitton. She was a regular sight at major award shows and fashion ceremonies. In 2015, Time Magazine named her China's "most famous actress."  But the film star hasn't been seen in public since early June, when, according to a post on her verified social-media account, she went to visit a children's hospital in Tibet. In an article by state media Securities Daily on September 6, which was later deleted, the publication said Fan had been brought "under control and about to receive legal judgment." No official statement has been made as to Fan's whereabouts, or any potential criminal charges against the actress.  However, in a country …
