    Growing up I thought “time of my life” was just a catchy tune created for sandals commercials.

    Someone messaged me yesterday and said they heard it was carbon monoxide. Makes no sense to me considering they were in different rooms but I'm also not an expert on carbon monoxide poisoning. Nausea and vomiting fit that theory though.

    All the government has said so far is that the don't suspect foul play.

    If it went down the way that article suggested that is super fucking terrifying. I'm not sure if high levels of methanol mixed in with ethanol would taste any different, and all of a sudden you start dying very quickly.

    Slight chance of random carbon monoxide poisoning should make you feel right at home if Ohio is anything like I imagine it.

    Carbon monoxide poisoning sent 6 to the hospital at the Westin in Nashville a few years ago.

    They were feeling extreme nausea-type symptoms for a full day ahead of dying. Even went to the infirmary to get checked out.

    You can die in your sleep or if you have been drinking just pass or have irreversible brain damage before you even know what happened. I suppose there’s varying levels of CO poisoning. Maybe sitting in a garage with a running car is a higher level poisoning than these folks had.

    Earlier this year a Hampton Inn in Ohio had a carbon monoxide leak in their pool area that sent like 12 people to the hospital. I believe they all lived, but you'd expect a Hampton Inn to have those detectors all over too.

    I know a few people who have gotten carbon monoxide poisoning from the air compressors we use while diving. Basically if you start feeling weak, vomiting, get suddenly cold, check the air intake hose for a hole near the air compressor engine. It doesn't seem to be a pleasant experience in those cases.

    I was in an old science building during undergrad which had these old jail looking courtyards that were completely enclosed by the building. Someone was pressure washing the one that was close to us and after a few minutes we started getting headaches and realized the ventilation must have been sucking up all the CO and pumping it directly into our room. We left and waited a half hour or so after the facility people got the guy to stop.

    One of the things I learned in grad school was to always carry a portable CO detector with me when staying in a strange place.

    Of course, back then it was a canary in a cage, but still.

    This happens a surprising amount of times with indoor pools.

    lmbo, I was at Georgia Southern and between my Junior and Senior years I applied and got an REU to do research at the Cell and Molecular Bio department at Carnegie Mellon. The big building where a lot of the labs are was built probably over 100 years ago at this point and didn't include windows unless they faced inward toward these weird courtyards.
