Did I? I don't remember that.

I only seem to retain stuff that I find really, really interesting.

My brain is like a sieve most of the time, unfortunately.

1. You aren't in as much pain as you have been before.

2. Someone Bach's husband died.

3. Ducks do have an echo.

4. Doris is going to see Hair on Saturday evening.

5. Stephen Fry doesn't always tell the truth.

Erm....

From Mythbusters

When examined by an audio expert, it was found that the echo was "swallowed" by the original quack, due to the very similar acoustic structure between the quack and the echo. Because of this, it may be difficult to tell where the quack ends and the echo begins, both having similar waveforms on an oscilloscope and blending together in a way that makes them difficult to distinguish. In the same way, human hearing may not perceive the difference between a duck's quack and its echo

So, to a human, no echo can be heard in certain circumstances.

Just because we can't hear it, doesn't mean it's not there
