The Guinness World Record for the quietest place on Earth is a laboratory in Minneapolis. It’s 99.99% sound absorbent. And if you’re alone in the room in the dark for 45 minutes . . . you actually go INSANE.
–Within 45 minutes of being in the room in the dark, people begin HALLUCINATING and BEGGING to be let out.
–Some of the insanity comes because your ears adapt to the silence . . . so you only hear your own body. You hear your heart beating, your lungs, and your stomach. And that seriously disorients you.
–The room has been certified by the people at Guinness World Records as the world’s quietest place.
–The room is useful for training astronauts, who encounter absolute silence in space.
