    which I presume has been taken off.

    On the face of it, it looked stupid because I just put Brass banding................. and looks like its been taken off.

    Anyway it was meant to be the post equivilant of that piece of music thats just silent and see where everyone would have taken the thread.

    Im guessing it would have lead to a conversation about the 6th bar on the second baritone part of sladiburn..........either that or a slagging match about chavs

    Sorry but I didn't think duck's quack echos either? However just because I've never heard a duck's quack echo dosn't mean it doesn't echo! (think that right):dunno :roll:

    I don't get it...surely there must be some substance on earth that the frequency of a ducks quack would bounce back off?!?!? Do ducks possess the only vocal resonence on earth that cannot rebound?? How does that work then??

    Some university guy got lots of money to investigate the duck echo thingy - but it does

    The old saying that a duck's quack produces no echo is... well, just plain quackers. Daisy performs: The anechoic chamber has no sound reflections

    Acoustics expert Professor Trevor Cox has deployed the most powerful techniques his science can muster to prove the bird's calls will bounce off hard surfaces in just the same way as all sounds.

    But the researcher has discovered there is a kernel of truth in the myth which may explain how it arose in the first place. He says the way a duck quacks, with a long "aaaacckkk" on the end of the call, tends to mask any echoes that are produced.
