Practicing the Fine Art of Bitchitude
I am guessing that someone you care about had a problem because of not having battaries in a smoke alarm or not having a carbon monoxide detector. I hope it wasn't too bad, and send my sympathy.
Yeah, I just saw that report. All six people in the home...dead... senslessly.And a week before Christmas!
Excellent fuss. Alternative fuss; don't buy any space heaters that don't have oxygen sensors on them. There's no reason that manufacturers can't put these on emergency heaters.
Don't know what the law is down there, but here, owners of residential buildings must have working smoke detectors and a CO detector as well. If you are a renter, your landlord is responsible for 'em. Found a summary of state/intl. law regarding such and it varies widely at: http://ip.bmj.com/cgi/reprint/5/4/254.pdf
Depending on where you live, you might even be able to get a smoke detector for free -- my local city fire department provides smoke detectors to anyone in the city who asks. I think they will even come in and install it.
