This Christmas, pretend you care about the health of your loved ones by buying them an exotic gift from a country they know nothing about.
Avoid dying in your sleep
Fan Death is supposedly a common cause of death in South Korea. It works like this: You fall asleep with a fan whirring in your room. The fan slices the oxygen particles in the air and you slowly suffocate.
You might have heard of this and dismissed it as silly gibberish. Nobody, you say, is stupid enough to believe in fan death. But that sadly isn’t true. The Korean government believes in fan death and legally requires all fans sold in Korea to come equipped with timers.
So this Christmas buy your loved ones a Korean fan. Make sure they never die a fictional death.
