The Quietest Place on Earth
PostPosted: Thu 27 Dec, 2007  Reply with quote

Just stumbled upon this website and here is the quietest place on Earth.

Quote:
In a world where something is always happening, people are always moving, and equipment is always buzzing, most people don’t know what silence really is. But in Minnesota, real silence can be found in a room. In fact, the anechoic chamber found at Orfield Laboratories Inc. is the Quietest Place on Earth, as awarded by the Guinness Book of World Records.

I'd go insane from hearing myself. A deep trance in said room, now that would be quiet.

John Cage was inspired to write his 4'33" in one of those.

My thoughts exactly! woo *Sonia body slams moogle in triumph.

I'd hate the quietest place on Earth for that reason. And as much as I wish I were an anomaly in this sense, owning and iPod hasn't helped. ohno

Wow. I find my house to actually be quiet, just a train goes by every so often...but other then that it's quiet! Wow. I wonder if that room would be much different.

I didn't understand when it did the comparison of our hearing 'db' and the chamber's db. Does it mean that our ears can repel sound up to 0 db and the chamber up to 9.4?

Ah silence droom The ability to actualy hear your own thoughts for a change.
I'd love that, but too much silence for too long will drive you insane!

mhmm... I like silent places. I don't see how it could be a bother... I mean... why would someone need to hear something he doesn't have to hear? It's just nice, in my opinion. I would certainly wouldn't mind having to be somewhere silent for extended periods of time.

(Silent places are also great to spend time with people with. If you're talking, you'd know they'd hear you too. Just a random thought. Sometimes I feel I can't hear the person I'm talking too.)
