thaNK YOU SO MUCH
the fact that anyone might commonly need to know this terrifies me

An alarming amount of the pops I heard in my old neighborhood were apparently gunshots.
It’s not that they don’t echo it’s that they have a flatter sound. Anything that produces a soundwave can make an echo
I was thinking about this after I posted it, and remembered a thing about duck quacks having the same myth. Thank you, Joan!
