    And the people bowed and prayed
    To the neon god they made
    And the sign flashed out its warning
    In the words that it was forming
    And the sign said, the words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
    And tenement halls
    And whispered in the sounds of silence

    Honestly, I thought the dress thing and this one are kind of fun. We constantly disagree on politics or we are bombarded by the latest Kardashian shenanigans. Something like this gives you a chance to talk to a stranger about something fun, forgetting your differences and connecting over something fun.

    UK pepople hear different things from the same sound? Explains why when I play guitar, I think I sound good, whereas my wife thinks the opposite.

    Our whole existence is Monty Python skit material.

    Can you imagine how many wars were started with "good morning" but the other party heard "your mama is like a screen door...."

    I thought he was making a comment about non-news stories being presented “as news” or interspersed with it.

    When I want to see news I am usually forced to wade through celebrity gossip, sports, self help segments, and great shopping deals, none of which are actually news.

    In a typical 30 minute network news broadcast, you might be lucky to get 3-5 minutes of “real” news, with the rest being commercials and other non-news fluff.

    Blame the internet and us for that. Before the internet, news outlets printed serious news because they thought that’s what we wanted. For the fringe folks, there were the tabloids. Then they could monitor what we were interested in by what we click on. It turns out that Iranian nuclear deals were far less interesting than who Taylor Swift is currently dating. Collectively, we have to look in the mirror for why the news is full of non-news. I try and do my part. I refuse to click on links when I am on a valid news source website that are non-news.

    Exactly. It’s totally banal and commonplace that some people see an object a completely different color than others? Or hear a different word than you swear you just heard?

    I think some people just like to ***** and moan about the internet sometimes. How do you feel about factory-relic guitars by the way? Maple vs rosewood guitar necks? Talk about stupid debates...

    It is actually a pretty interesting subject, how we humans perceive things.
    In fact, it has been studied and shown, just how easy it is to trick our brains.

    It's amazing really, how much our brains "fill in the gaps" for what our senses give it.
    In the end tho, we bare the stamp of our lowly origins.
    We were experts in hunting and eating, while not getting eaten.
    We are not particularly well suited to seeing reality as it is. We see what we need to for survival.

    Think of this thread the next time you read someone’s impressions on an amp or a set of pickups.

    I'm no expert but, I do know that tones project a fifth of the scale which is part of the reason we and animals hear stuff the way we do.
