I can kind of hear this high pitched something that could be 'Yanny', but not quite.  I'm in the Laurel camp.

I don't hear anything except for Laurel clear as day.

This page has a slider to change the pitch, so you can hear both words:

I seem to have attained a higher state of being and can now clearly hear both at the same time.

I'd like the opportunity to do something sneakily in all black clothing in the dark some time in my life. A heist, prank on a jerky fraternity, breaking in to my workplace to use supplies I can not afford to help start up a business of my own.

It seems like it would be fun.
You know, if the space man puma thing turns out to be the correct religion, I for one will be very surprised.

A father and son are having an argument over dinner. "you never let me do anything fun, Dad! I hate you!" Screams the son. "My word is final! Go to your room, your man!" The father shouts back. The son leaves the table in a huff, and stomps upstairs. Ask he really he's the top, he yells down to his father, "Jim Morrison was a talentless hack!" The father stands up angrily and shouts back "What did I tell you about slamming The Doors?!"

I'd love to hear the pitch meeting for the Golden Girls.

I imagine it was like the Final Sacrifice bit during the end credits when Tom was pitching the Final Sacrifice TV show idea to Mike as the producer. And then the casting director had an old person fetish.

Yanni and Laurel is interesting, but I like this one better because you can hear both versions. You can hear ‘brainstorm’ or ‘green needle’ depending on which words you think about while playing it.

That doesn’t feel like a real number. That number will never exist. Humanity will be long dead before then. 

But 80 years ago people were all like “Oh yeah humanity will be around forever. So what, should we do 500 years?  Too soon?  Hell, 10 times that, why not. 5000 years.  Done. Dig that hole.”

Perhaps things would be better if we acted like we were going to be around to see year 6,939, but right now that number looks absurd. The apocalypse is a self fulfilling prophecy, and so many are begging for it to come.

Hopefully they planned it out better than whoever chose that font in that color on that background. Seriously, that is really hard to read!

Oh, I dunno. Dinosaurs got like 181 million years. I feel like humanity should be at least able to make it to 10,000. (Assuming we don't ignore all of the warning signs Earth is sending out that we're killing it.)

I mean, it won't be dug up by the same society that burried it, but some archaeologist should get a kick out of a record of "Little Brown Jug" if they can figure out what it does.

Several of these hominins used fire, occupied much of Eurasia, and gave rise to anatomically modern Homo sapiens in Africa about 315,000 years ago. They began to exhibit evidence of behavioral modernity around 50,000 years ago.

Ah, there I go confusing recorded history with the dawn of humanity. Point remains. Humans have a lot of juice left.
