Going into really good anechoic chamber is disconcerting. It is so quiet that you can hear the blood coursing through your arteries and veins, your heart beat, and the faint squishing sounds that your muscles make as they slide over one another. Most people cannot remain in an anechoic chamber for more than a few minutes. Tolerance of the quiet of an anechoic chamber was used as one of the tests for Mercury astronauts in the mistaken belief that space would be absolutely quiet. However the machinery in space craft proved so noisy that astronauts had trouble sleeping.

I've been to the answer and I didn't think it was all that quiet compared to other places I've been.

This question was very unfair. You did not state what place IN EACH PLACE was quiet. You asked WHICH PLACE was the quietest. BAD FORM. VERY BAD FORM, HTG !!!!

Been there, Done that.
But I have to say, the quietest place I've been to is in my mind.
When going into meditation, one or the last things I have to filter out is my heart beat and the sound of my eyeballs in their sockets when I move them.

The quietest place I've seen on TV is a political debate where the opposition asks a question that could lead to capture of one of the senior members of the ruling party.

Yea. But you could still hear the pin drop.
