Urban Myth Or Scary Warning?

Category: Aware Or Conspiracy Nut...,PersonalChrisM @ 12:32 am

OK, I have to admit, I have read about this nightmare scenario before, but I had not realised that some Koreans take it very seriously…

What am I talking about? The silent killer – Death By Fan! Yes, some people do believe that if you sleep in a room, with shut windows and a door, and leave a desk fan on, you risk suffocating… In the same way that Kazakhs will warn you not sit on concrete (you’ll get piles) or drink a cold drink on a hot day (you’ll damage your throat? you’ll get a cold? can’t recall the dire warning exactly, apologies), this old wives tale still circulates in some society circles!
