Improve CDs with Yoghurt?
I just found an article claiming that you can change the sound of a CD by spreading yoghurt on it.  It's not April 1 already, is it?! I'm sure it'd change the sound, probably by introducing vast amounts of errors, or making the disc unplayable. lol

Seems like the same guy.

Has anybody experimented with glue?

As my desk is covered with lots of stuff most of the time, occasionally a CD falls down. I prefer the sound of CDs covered with (fresh) yoghurt falling on the floor (if the yoghurt side is down) over the sound of native CDs (difference obvious, no ABX needed).  B)

... and frozen yoghurt works even better, since you get both fungus and ice crystals!

All they need is to add the green marker color to the frozen yoghurt, and perhaps some magnetized iron filings, and... and... Yikes, these people are insane.

Just read the other article. You're right Gecko, it's the same guy. Must be a slow news day for these sites to be publishing this silly stuff.

Well, I'm thinking Mr. Yoghurt Disc might have been experimenting with glue. Sniffing it.  But no, I haven't personally tried putting anything on a CD to change the sound. Seems any substance that dries somewhat clear would do what this guy claims though. I'm thinking even purposely putting lots of fingerprints on the disc would affect it.

Frankly, I'll just leave the music the way the musician intended it... lol

That article seems to be taken a little to serious in here. If you read on into the article, it does say its just to mix the sound of the CD being played not improve the quality of the sound. This isn't a serious article about quality improving, but more about how the sound changes due to the different reflection cause by the bacteria/fungus.

Fungus? Hmm, it would probably hurt if I rubbed it down there...

"I see your Schwartz is as big as mine..."   

How about if you just apply the yogurt to the inside of your ears, and then let the fungus grow there?  Then all the CDs in your collection would benefit from sound modification all the same way.

The same concept as applying mass-ReplayGain to your music.
