Fan death

Fan death, or the belief that keeping the fan on whilst you sleep in a closed room will kill you, is a widely held belief in South Korea.

Sounds ridiculous, right?

However, top scientists have explained it and confirmed its veracity. There are regular news reports. Every fan in Korea has a timer on it to prevent this lethal threat.

Even Korean wifey has challenged my laughter with documentary X that was on TV.

Talking to my cousin last night, he noted how effing stupid that an entire nation could believe such crap. My reply was essentially, meh, replace “fan death” with “global warming”, and you have an entire planet believing such nonsensical shite … backed up by top scientists and constant news reports, no less.

    Install ceiling fans and put them on reverse mode. Problem solved, maybe?

    I loved this story. 😆

    • No, then you’ll wake up and be five years old.

  1. And mate, one student (good bloke and all), even picked up the marker and started explaining it on the board, the science and all that.

  2. Another student gave first hand anecdotal evidence of his baby coughing/chocking any time the fan…

    IF true we should find plenty of “fan caused” death reports from Australia given the importance still of fans during our regular hot summer weather, particularly monsoon season in top end.

    More likely to find heat-stroke when fans stop working…

    • It wasn’t the croc that killed him…

        Fan………oh bugger it.

  3. Damn! My wife is trying to kill me (and herself apparently as well).

  1. No trackbacks yet.

Surely you're thinking something...
