commented on Carbon Monoxide Detectors: What Do You Think?
volunteer firefighter here - as annoying as they may be, i've seen them save lives. your furnace, fireplace, water heater, dryer, car, or some other form of incomplete combustion can kill you in your sleep. elderly man left his car running in his garage by accident; nearly killed himself and his neighbors - only reason he survived was because he was on oxygen. he was passed out but his CO detector going off was driving somebody else nuts so they called us. they're worth it.

My home office in Round Lake, NY. Moved here from Seattle two months ago. The big news out here recently has been that the police have caught two public masturbators in Albany. Most days in Seattle, I'd see at least that many public masturbators between 15th and 23rd on the #43 bus.
