Skip to 0:30 for the lulz.

Jesus christ I almost pissed myself.

I think this would really spice up political speeches.

I wonder if that could be used to show people a bit of what it's like to have a speech impediment.

After watching more videos, I guess people are just using speech jammers to make fun of people with speech impediments, as well as southerners. Sad

I don't know if it's aimed at making fun of people with speech impediments, but it's rather humorous to see someone who can talk normally suddenly start slurring and stuttering just from the use of voice feedback.

I've tried it myself, but it seems to not have the same effect. I stutter a little, but I generally manage to catch it.

Also, this coming from someone who did speech therapy for a while because of a speech disorder diagnosis that ultimately turned out to be a mis-diagnosis.

if you want to try this don't bother with the app

just set up your computer to play back what you're saying to you with a slight delay, maybe a bit warmer/deeper

it takes like two seconds to set up in audacity

okay at first what I was saying was complete gibberish but then I was able to power through it pretty well, to the point of talking completely normally


I'll try messing with the exact delay time etc and see if I can make it more difficult to talk with

Okay, cool. I was reacting to the comments in the video, as well as other videos where people talk about how funny it is they 'sound retarded.'

I had heard about these speech disruptors being used in Japanese business meetings to keep people from talking too long, so I've been curious how they actually sound. I had thought it actually just made people go blank and become unable to remember what they were going to say. I'll have to look into it more because it is really interesting.

Trailer for the new Cosmos miniseries, with Neil deGrasse Tyson filling in for Carl Sagan.
I'd be lying if I said the amount of explosions peppered in there didn't worry me a bit, but if anybody can succeed Sagan as the voice of wonder for the new millennium of science enthusiasm, it's Tyson.

I was worried, but that looks awesome! And if it will get people interested in science and critical thinking, I don't care if they throw in explosions.

Very happy they're doing the calendar thing! I love that!
