Default Home Fan that does not make sound

I am looking for a FAN (not ceiling fan) but a FAN that is on a stand that does not make sound when running. Any recommendations!

one that isn't turned on. I mean, how much is "no sound". All fans make sound. Sound is air moving. Fans move air.

But generally, the larger the blades and the less the cant of the blades ,the less sound it will make, because it pushes air more slowly. Just find the one with the biggest blades and the least tilt in the blades.

Sh....t!! That Dyson fan is $300!!
For that much money, it would probably make a hissing sound that would sound like someone whispering "ssssssstupiddddd"

It would be worth alot more than $300 if you could find a girlfriend that did not make any noise
