Guys, I sort of want to stop talking with so much vocal fry. I don’t think there is anything wrong with it (though I do love this INSANE CBS video on it lol), but I do sound very creaky and froggy most of the time when I hear myself recorded. I know it’s (allegedly) bad for your vocal cords, and as someone with constant allergies anyway…well, it all seems like a bad combo.
Here’s the thing: my entire speaking voice is basically vocal fry. I have vocal fry in every sentence I say. In order to not have vocal fry, I would have to adopt a substantially different mode of speaking. It would also mean I would be speaking in (what is to me) a noticeably higher voice. Is that…a thing a person can pull off? Do people do that? Is it too weird and awkward to try to actively change the way you speak? Does anyone else notice this about themselves? Am I thinking about this too much?
Edit: Just to be clear, I am not worried about the state of my vocal cords so much as the sound and quality of my voice, but thanks for the advice to see a “professional” doctor, Jacob! Helpful stuff.
The emergency contraceptive pill also begins to lose effectiveness for women over 165 pounds, according to reports.
OH FUCK JESUS CHRIST. 165 LBS? WHAT COUNTRY DO THEY THINK THEY ARE SELLING THIS IN? What if I take it in the morning naked standing on the scale?

Add this to my growing list of reasons why the NYPD scares me. Kaleif Browder was 16-years-old when he was accused of robbery by someone he had never met. Unable to post bail, he and his family maintained his innocence for three years while he suffered the brutal conditions of Rikers Island awaiting trial. Earlier this year he was released without so much as an apology from the city.
This is beyond disgusting. I hope this kid sues and gets millions. Those judges should be losing their jobs over this already.Source: rafi-dangelo
