Was hearing Yanny yesterday. Watched this video and this is how it goes.

“Do you hear yanny?” Laurel, Laurel “Or Laurel?” Yanny, yanny

Rewound it a few times and it didn’t change.

Help me I’m scared.

I heard it as Yanny this morning, now I only hear it as Laurel. What happened

He went to the art class to attack the football coaches, sure.

Edit: regardless of reddit's opinion, I was right, as expected. It's never bullying. trust me. Never has been, never will be. In this case, like many others, he was obsessed with one girl who did not want to date him. He 'pestered her' for months and she rejected him in class the week before the shooting. She was killed. He did this because he couldn't handle rejection and thought he was owed sex by a girl, similar to the Virginia Tech shooting, and several others. Hatred of women and stalking and abusive relationships with women are the biggest signs of all with mass shooters. https://www.cnn.com/2018/05/20/us/texas-school-shooting/index.html

Our art teacher was the girls soccer coach. Math teacher was the boys.

Or it implies that the couple told reporters "We communicated the best we could, but they wouldn't listen or couldn't understand us". I have friend had an older sister and younger brother who were 90%+ deaf. Unless you were around them a lot, you could barely understand his sister when she spoke because when she was born, cochlear implants weren't really a good option yet (I think he's around 34-ish now?). I'm sure it would be near impossible to understand her under tense circumstances when you don't even know her.

I guess we’ll never really know. The article is written so badly it’s hard to tell what the writer truly meant.

That is also very true. Regardless, fuck that guy for punching any pregnant woman in the stomach.

Agreed!

Don’t listen to people saying verizon - if you don’t have AT&T in southern VT, you pretty much won’t get service. Fairpoint (Consolidated Communications) would be the internet provider. I grew up in the Wilmington area and it’s a great town, lots of recreational opportunities nearby. It will be kind of a ghost town on most weekends in the Spring and Summertime but the place really gets packed in the Winter due to it’s proximity to Mount Snow. There are a few really great restaurants in the center of town.

That’s even worse. No once dances to STH. And i say this as a big Zep fan. A song being good =/= a song that is appropriate in every setting

witfenek 2 points

They used to play STH at every semi formal and prom at my school. This was ‘08-‘14. It was kind of terrible because they played it at the funeral of one of the popular girls’ mom, and she always got really sad when it would come on at the dance.

I guess I'll take this over the same advertisement I see every ten posts for the window blinds I google image searched that one time.

witfenek 8 points

I wish my ads actually meant something to me. I know having overly personalized ads is sometimes creepy, but I honestly prefer it over seeing ads for shit I don’t care about at all. I HATE wine, so every time I see the stupid wine quiz one I want to punch a wall. Fuck you /u/BrightCellarsWine.

There's also that recorded incident of the wild sea lion attempting to teach a Nat Geo scuba photographer how to eat a penguin, including trying to feed it to him.

Only a singular sea lion, obviously, but it didn't view him as food but rather as another predator or sea lion-like creature that for some reason wasn't eating penguins like it "should" be.

I believe that was a leopard seal (which I’m pretty sure are bigger and more deadly).

I am pretty sure the colossal squid didn't exist until we definitively proved that giant squid were not a myth. The ocean then decided it needed something even more scary to throw at us.

Now that we proved the colossal squid is out there I fear what it will make next.

Did they ever find out what made the big “bloop” noise?

At first I was like, oh, maybe she meant 47 kilos, that is more realistic and actually low... then nope, back up to 102... god damn

witfenek 76 points

Nope, she’s literally trying to tell people she weighed 47 lbs and was already 3.5 months pregnant when she found out. The skinniest person in the world has a severe eating disorder and weighs about 55 lbs. This is what she looks like.

DrunkenMasterII 1 point

Are you sure she didn’t meant 147 and missed a 1. Like just a typo.

witfenek 7 points

why would her doctor want her to go down to 100 then

edit: also the fact that she used the words “gain up to”

It's a beautiful Christmas song though. One of the most played songs around Christmas. You'll be sick of it by mid December for hearing it so much.

witfenek 1 point

I actually never hear this song played around Christmas, it’s really weird. I work in a ski shop that plays Christmas music all throughout Christmas break and it never comes on.

My brother had an irate customer that set him off at work once. He'd just been told by my mom via text that I was in the hospital for preeclampsia but he didn't know anything else, including if I was okay or not. He had to walk away from the customer, who then complained to a manager who the customer also pissed off.

Retail workers really do get dehumanized by customers.

witfenek 35 points

So many customers seem to think that we’re not real people and couldn’t possibly have tragedies and bad days. We’re just there to serve them.
