Come on. You don't actually think that that's the point of the Yerushalmi ::)
While you're waiting on Exgingi's response, can you articulate what it is you're trying to take out of the Yerushalmi?

Explanation of ppl hear differently. He awnsers in last minute.
That's not a full explanation. It's just a statement of how, not why. It was the same thing as the tweet CM posted before, just in video form.

I hear both, it depends on angle, volume etc.
According to the "experts" on YouTube its about the pitch
Pitch is frequency. Though apparently I had it backwards as to each is high and which is low.

I heard yanny the first few times, then it switched to laurel and I can't switch back.

The sound is not identical to what you'd hear if someone said either word. Therefore your brain does some 'translation/filtering' to get you to something mildly recognizable. When that filtering tends toward the higher range of the frequency in the clip you get yanny, and lower end gets laurel. Or something like that. That's my guess at least.

I'm sure there will eventually be a breakdown by one of the educational YouTube channels on the topic that will explain it much better.

It does sound silly the way he said it, but you do have to give sometimes to get things in return
So what's he getting?

We went to a meat place as well, gotta check up the name but I was highly disappointed.
Mendi's?

Recommendations in Tiberias/Tzfat?
I'll run through the places we went while we were in Tzfat. Arale was solid, and seemed to be one of relatively few meat options with a mehadrin hechsher. Art Cafe was mediocre at best. Cafe Deganim was really good for a quick lunch.

Wrong thread for this, but check out Otzar Hastam and Quilted Glass. Both great activities for your kids.

Watch the 3 part series 30 for 30 Celtics/Lakers and see if you feel the same way.
I have. I do.

ETA - I think this is my favorite:
Quote
Most damningly, he has also been dubbed “Porcelain Mamba” for his efforts to draw fouls despite being hardly touched. In Chinese, “bumping porcelain” (碰瓷) is a euphemism for faking traffic accidents in order to fraudulently collect compensation. The expression dates to the Qing Dynasty, when scam artists would carry a fake porcelain vase and purposely bump into a rickshaw and drop the vase, causing it to shatter. They would then claim the shattered vase was a valuable antique and demand compensation. The implication here is that Harden is a master scam artist who draws fouls he doesn’t deserve.

I guess what you are saying is take the top five GOAT and that will be the GOAT team?
Definitely not. In fact, I can see an argument for a 'regular' pg over Lebron - just not Magic.

He is getting at Magic is a better point guard.
if using current players then Lebron is obviously picked but if we are doing by position then it changes whose spot he is taking
Nah. Pick 4 other guys, then have Magic run that team as the "PG" and Lebron run that team as the "PG". It's Lebron all day. I'm not even that high on Lebron, but there's just no case to say you're better off with Magic in that spot.

This is where the problem comes in. We talking five best or the best team?
Let's say the latter. How does that change anything re Lebron vs Magic/Bird?

If you had to pick by position and each player was locked into the position that he played most of his career then yeah I would pick Magic as PG
If you're letting Lebron qualify for the same spot as Magic, he's getting that spot over Magic. If you're letting him qualifiy for the same spot as Bird, he's getting that spot over Bird. Not sure what you're getting at.

Not sure who I would replace either Duncan or Bird by position or Magic since Lebron essentially plays PG but yes I would put Lebron in my 5 if using current players.
Wait, what? If for some reason the other 4 spots were locked down, there's a scenario where you'd pick Magic over Lebron? Or Bird over Lebron?

But never needed a game 7!!!
Sure, if you limit it to finals only - thus excluding out all the times they lost (including in 7 games to the Pistons in 1990), or when they needed 7 to get past the Knicks (1992) and the Pacers (1998).
