Q: Why “fans manufactured and sold in Korea are often equipped with a timer switch that turns them off after a set number of minutes, which users are urged to set when going to sleep with a fan on”?

A: Because of the apparent risk of fan death, where “…one can die from sleeping in a sealed room with an electric fan turned on…”

Want to know the extent of this urban legend? It took a big investigative reporting to courageously say:

“We concluded that fans do not suck out oxygen.”

Wow. Just wow.
