Well it's summer here in Korea and the number of fan deaths ought to be reaching epidemic proportions REALLY soon.
Oh, you've never heard of fan death? Hmm, perhaps that's because you do not live in Korea. Or maybe it's because you are not Korean and fan death only strikes those fatally individualistic Koreans. OR, perhaps it's because you are not krazy.
This belief is so ridiculous and absurd I can't even get it up to make fun, so yeah, Koreans believe in "fan death." Apparently when Koreans (yes, only Koreans) fall asleep in a sealed room with the fan on, said fan chops up the oxygen particles, creating less oxygen for the Korean to breathe. Or maybe the fan just creates a vortex. Who knows? Fans manufactured and sold here even come with a timer, lest you fall asleep and fan death strikes. It's so prevalent, wikipedia has dedicated an entire page to educating the masses.
