How would you sound on Mars?

"On Venus, the pitch of your voice would become much deeper," Leighton said. "That is because the planet’s dense atmosphere means that the vocal cords vibrate more slowly through this ‘gassy soup.’ However, the speed of sound in the atmosphere on Venus is much faster than it is on Earth, and this tricks the way our brain interprets the size of a speaker."

He suggests that our brain has been fine-tuned this way “to work out whether an animal call in the night was something that was small enough to eat, or so big as to be dangerous.” On other planets, however, that fine tuning can lead to different impressions.

"When we hear a voice from Venus, we think the speaker is small, but with a deep bass voice," Leighton said. "On Venus, humans sound like bass Smurfs."

He said the situation would be different on Mars. “The lower sound speed on Mars does not lower the pitch of the voice,” Leighton told me in a follow-up email. “It makes the speaker seem slightly larger, but still in pitch. In fact, the atmosphere of Mars would raise the pitch of the speaker’s voice slightly, because of a density effect.”

Filmmaker Jennie Livingston On Life And Loss After "Paris Is Burning"

I am racist, and so are you.

"Look, I’m not here to condemn you. Condemning you, after all, would condemn me as well. I’m here to tell you that it’s not us against the racists. We’re not fighting a battle with the Paula Deens of the world. If only it were that simple, that cut and dried. The battle is instead us against racism, and that racism resides in each of us. This war begins within.”

When I listen to Party In The USA by Miley Cyrus I always imagine the memo telling her to wear stilettos that she never received

Get to the club in my taxi cab
Everybody’s looking at me now
Like, “Who’s that chick that’s rockin’ kicks?
She gotta be from out of town.”

So hard with my girls not around me
It’s definitely not a Nashville party
'Cause all I see are stilettos
I guess I never got the memo
