31. welcome to DU!

sometimes the biggest problem with stuff like this is subliminal. If a person listens to it and expects to hear something, especially if they've been told that's what it says, many times that's exactly what they will hear. I'm just as susceptible to it as anybody I guess.

I remember back when I was growing up in the Southern Baptist church, they used to bring thes "rock music is the devil" preachers in to turn records backwards and prove that the rock and roll was evil. Without fail, every single one of them would say "I'm gonna play this backwards and you are going to hear it say...." And sure enough, that's what most people would hear.

But yesterday evening I played it for a friend who hasn't been following the news and had no idea what he was listening to. When I asked him what he heard, he said "fucking coons".
