If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

I can only hear "Laurel" and literally cannot fathom where this "Yanny" business is coming from.

Scott Adams saved me from having to
endure nonsense like this. He did the

Thanks, Scott.

Exactly. I would have been shocked if
you knew who Scott Adams was. I'm
amazed you have heard of Rush.

I get the feeling that this is supposed to make me feel bad, but coming from you it means less than nothing.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯
