    my asian relatives always said the same thing...but never when i came to the US.

    I've been sleeping with a ceiling fan on for years and in the summer I sit a box fan at the end of the bed if the ceiling fan isn't giving enough cooling/circulation......as far as I can tell I'm still alive.

    Damn, I knew I was living on the wild side!! I take my life into my hands every night in the summer if this is true! That's right, I'm a bad boy living on the edge of death, I have fan blowing in my face as I type this. Do I care? Hell no. ;)

    &quot;your mom is dumb.&quot;

    WTF?
    Was that a really necessary comment?
    I most certainly don't think so and clearly illustrates your own limited capabilites.

    Judging by the mistake YOUR mother made I would say she isn't a Rhodes Scholar either.

    &quot;don't play with fire&quot; and
    &quot;eat your spinach&quot; and
    &quot;when i was your age..&quot; and
    &quot;don't chew with your mouth full&quot; and
    &quot;where are my cigarettes?&quot; and
    &quot;what the hell is wrong with you son, you dumbass&quot;

    Interesting...my parents were lying to me all along :)

    My dad told me to leave a window or a door open when I sleep with a fan on. I understood him when he said it was for air circulation, but then he started telling me stories about people who died because they slept with the fan on. :disgust:
