What do you Hear, Yanny or Laurel?

Nobody can agree if this robot says 'Yanny' or 'Laurel' and everyone is arguing about it

As if we needed another thing to divide America.

This could explain why one person can hear Laurel one time, and Yanny another.

But failing those theories, he said it "could just be a big internet hoax".

If you haven't heard about the "Yanny or Laurel" debate, you might be living under a rock.

Intrigued, Szabo sent it to a friend who posted the clip on Instagram and created a poll that quickly went viral, triggering a mass debate that has spread internationally. Soon everyone from regular Joes to celebs like Ellen DeGeneres and JJ Watt were talking about it (Ellen thought it was Laurel, but Watt was Team Yanny).

Twitter users flocked to the website to share what they heard. So what do you hear? It can also be the psychological properties of our hearing system.

But what if two people are both listening through the same speaker and hear different things?

Amit Almor is a psychology professor at the University of SC. The shape of everybody's ears is different. Depending on the language you speak or are used to hearing, the words can sound similar. "CBS This Morning" co-hosts Norah O'Donell and John Dickerson heard "Laurel" while Gayle King heard "Yanny".

So congratulations, #TeamLaurel. LOLz, did you really think Chrissy Teigen was wrong?? "It's definitely, definitely, definitely 'Yanny'".
