Skeptical Analysis of the Paranormal Society

"Le doute n'est pas une condition agréable, mais la certitude est absurde."


The Racket of a Chair Moving

A look at sound in "paranormal" footage.

In one of our essays, we discussed the importance of sound in paranormal footage. So our next question is, would a travel chair make that much of a racket? Travel chairs are very light - they are intended to be carried. They weigh two pounds or less. We headed out to an uneven front porch to test the sound levels made of a light travel chair versus a five pound dining chair.

See the footage here (although I warn you, you may want to listen and not look. It'll make you dizzy.):
