    Sound is compressions in the air, and such compressions are picked up as vibrations on more or less any surface, the human ear included.

    Comfy,

    Didn't you bring this up just awhile back? Perhaps this will help put it to rest for you.

    It depends on what you mean by "sound".

    There are mechanical vibrations transmitted through an elastic medium like air and water. These can be called sound, though they make no noise perse.

    Sound, also means the sensation produced by stimulation of the organs of hearing by the "sound" vibrations previously mentioned.

    So, if the question is ask "If a tree falls in the woods and there is no one there to hear it, does it make a sound. The answer, technically, can be either yes or no. Yes, it makes vibrations in the air which we call sound. But, if you are referring to "sound" as noise, then the answer is no; because there is no hearing organs present to create the noise we call "sound". Kind of a semantics knot.

    If a tree fell on Comforters head, would it really change the "quality" of his posts?

    I asked this question in a thead I started, Dunsscot. Nettiquette dictates that you answer the question in that thread. But you never one for obeying rules, were you? Especially the one about avoiding bad association online...
