2. Death of a Thousand Fans

In South Korea, there is a myth stating that if you leave an electric fan running all night in your closed room, you will die. The legend says that you can die by being poisoned or suffocated, or that you can suffer from hypothermia. I hope this isn’t true, because I sleep with a fan on every single night of my life. Hypothermia can occur in rare instances, but the circumstances have to be just right -- or just wrong.
