Yanny vs. Laurel
Much like the dress debate that surfaced a few years ago, an audio clip divided the internet yesterday of, either Laurel or Yanny. If you hear Laurel, you're supposed to have "older ears," where if you hear Yanny, you have "young ears." The audio clip was first posted on Reddit a few days ago and has completely baffled everyone including scientists, who have been trying to figure out how people are so clearly hearing 2 separate things. Several researchers agreed that the audio recording is just too ambiguous. Theoretically, listeners can hear different sounds depending on whether the low frequencies or high frequencies are amplified.

Adnan Syed Documentary In The Works At HBO
Variety reports that HBO has been working on a documentary about the Adnan Syed case which inspired the popular "Serial" podcast since 2015. "The series will explore the 1999 disappearance and murder of 18-year-old Baltimore County high school student Hae Min Lee and the subsequent conviction of her ex-boyfriend, Syed. In production since 2015, the series will re-examine the events leading up to Hae Min Lee’s disappearance, the original police investigation, and the present day, when Syed awaits a new trial." In an unexpected twist, back in March the Court of Special Appeals granted Syed a retrial. No word on an air date yet.
So excited to finally announce the film we’ve been working on for 2 and a half years. #adnansyed #justice @HBODocs @CJBrownLaw @Jemima_Khan @henconrad #workingtitle #comingsoon https://t.co/W27hhD1wv4— amy berg (@disarmingfilms) May 16, 2018
