you, too, can have perfect pitch!

amaze your friends! astound your co-workers! after just 10,000 hours of listening closely to too many notes you, too, can have perfect pitch!

accurately identify which note a struck bell has played even if you’re only seven years old! Identify the numerical value in hertz of a given note! (wtf?) name that tune in just one note!

all it takes is 10,000 hours of your spare time! (and maybe you could try being a little more east asian.) really!!

(no, not really.)

bonus. bonus bonus.

previously: you, too, can become a brilliant evolutionary theorist!
