"They told me I could become anything, so I became a theremin."
Tuvan throat singing. There's a great documentary about an American singer who heard this on the radio, spent years trying to figure out what the hell it was, then found a record, taught himself how to do it, met Tuvans who could, and was invited back to compete.
edit: Thanks for the fascinating replies everyone.
Is it possible to learn this power?
(I get the prequel meme, but...)
I learned how from descriptions (and a few accompanying audio clips) in a Scientific American article almost 20 years ago. There should be a lot more resources now.
Your larynx is making one tone, and then you shape the tongue to tune in to different harmonic frequencies above that base tone.
It's the same thing you do whenever you form different vowel sounds.
The article I read had diagrams of how the tongue should be shaped in the mouth to get these very high harmonic overtones (which, because they are a couple octaves above the base frequency will sound like a separate note).
I want to know how long it takes someone to make this. They're always done so well.
That’s because you only see the well done ones ;)
I legit thought this was Kristen Wiig
My coons would hang on me and hug me like that. Hang all over you like a wet blanket. Pretty awesome to have a 20 pound cat love you.
"Wow, he never lets anyone even pet him, let alone hug him like that. This is the first time's he's been open to affection since we got him in" - Shelter worker probably
Our old Maine coon loved for me to pick him up and hold him while I gave him head scratches. It would have been adorable if he he didn't have the habit of drooling when he was happy and would shake his head and fling cat drool all over me after a little while.
I miss that big mean doofus.
I went with my mom to go pick up a cat to bring home and the one she was planning on adopting I picked up and he grabbed on to my shoulder and perched up like a parrot and just sat there. When we were in the car bringing him home he maneuvered around my neck and lied down still balancing on my neck/shoulders. Before that I didn’t really care that much for cats as a pet but I began to understand why they were nice to have around after that day. He’s still with us although he’s way too fat to even attempt to balance on my shoulder anymore but all in all he’s a great cat.
Holy shit. I was just at that lake a few days ago. That's hidden lake in glacier near the top of going to the sun road. Last week the lake still had a fair amount of ice on it. I paid my kids 5 bucks if they would jump in and swim around. Little suckers took me up on it. Good times.
Where them glaciers at
Of the estimated 150 glaciers which existed in the park in the mid-19th century, only 25 active glaciers remained by 2010. Scientists studying the glaciers in the park have estimated that all the active glaciers may disappear by 2030 if current climate patterns persist.
The Glacier National Park. What is this, Ohio State?
This must be from the special room service menu.
That dude is just like "I don't know why I agreed to this shit".
"I don't get paid enough for this shit"
Is she baggage? Because I'm getting the feeling she might be baggage.
My favorite part about this is the sheer joy she seems to be having doing this. It's awesome, I hope I am able to find the thing that makes me feel that way one day.

Thank you! Watching a Drummer without sound is kinda stupid.
I am searching for that thing too
ABS OF STEEL!!!
I am become Death destroyer of grass
my back hurts
Amanda Cerny for those wondering.
I got to meet him in person a few years ago at a con. You really can't get a scale of how small he was unless you saw him in person. For a celeb, he came off as really shy.
His face looks like that of pure joy
If you were beside Amanda cerny in a bikini you'd be like that too
Imagine doing this for 8 hours a day
Imagine being the person who came up with this and was all happy cause they could finish their work so much faster and so they showed somebody with this video but then her boss saw and increased her quota to match this uptick.
Also fired half the people and now pockets the money as a bonus for his outstanding work.
My guess is two months of this is all it takes to develop carpal tunnel.
Van Damme didn't use his hands tho
And he got lower.
and, you know, the truck thing.
