With the original clip on my usual big headphones, it flipped in the middle of the first word. After that I only could hear Laurel. I heard the syllable "yea" and then it kind of retroactively flipped the whole word. Really weird perception. I'll try pitch shifting it now.

Shifted down by a fifth (the musical interval) is my line between Yanny/Yally and Laurel, but it depends on the order. If it goes down, I get one or two more Laurels than the other way.

It is exhausting. That's why I don't go out and socialize after classes or on the weekends. I need that time by myself, to recharge and to recuperate. Otherwise, I wouldn't be able to handle it.
I sympathize, and realize I probably could not do that. But, give me a shovel and tell me to dig a ditch from here to there, I would that all day long as I didn't have to do it with someone else.

All I ever hear was "Laurel", but I can attribute that to hearing loss at high frequencies.

Default Re: Miscellany

When I was hospitalized last year, they put me on medication to manage my life-threatening hypertension. I recall telling the doctor at the time that I intended to get off the medication, eventually. He told me, "Once you're on the medication, you're on it for life."

But I'm generally a fairly active person, so weight isn't the issue. I've been keeping to a very low-sodium diet, as best I can. And I've been measuring my blood pressure 4 times per day and recording the results. On each follow-up visit, after checking how my pressure has been trending, they've lowered the dosage of my medication.

About 6 months ago, the doctor told me, "Not 1 in 1,000 persons gets off the medication -- but you might just pull it off."


Two weeks ago, the doctor had me stop taking the medication entirely, to see how things would go. I had a check-up earlier today, and he declared my hypertension to be under control -- that is, my b.p. is staying nice and low, rather lower than is typical for someone my age, in fact. So, as long as I remain active and continue to minimize the amount of sodium in my diet, I should be fine. So, I'm officially off the pills.

Otherwise, everything seems to check out. He says that I have the heart of an athlete, and that overall, I'm in excellent health. Not too shabby.

Just posting to note that I'm glad you're OK. I might have more to add if my lunch break weren't ending in a moment, but I'd have been really upset if something bad had happened to you.

DANGIT.

Earlier, I told Matlock I was making spaghetti bolognese, but I only just now thought of how great it would have been if I'd boiled some spaghetti poked through bologna slices and told him he misheard me.

The second guy to run on - in the dark suit - grabs the first guy, not the Pikachu dancer. Clearly white shirt is crew and dark suit is security and security is confused. Watch as white shirt is obviously saying get your fucking hands off me you goon this dancer could suffocate, and then dark suit is saying to the other ten goons who run on no no false alarm just mingle with the Pikachus.
