Yes, we have one. But this thread reminds me that I haven't changed the battery in forever.

Nah, seriously, everyone should pick one up. My friend from high school almost bought it with her entire family. Pilot light went out, everyone was getting ready for bed, had headaches, some were asleep in the house. My friend had a bad feeling when they couldn't wake up her brother, called 911, got out of the house. Fire fighters that responded measured the levels and said they should all be dead. She called everyone she knew in the next couple of days and told us to get them. Scared the hell outta me and I have much esteem for her, so I did.

If Jesus wanted us to not die of carbon monoxide poisoning, he would have given us schnozzes able to detect such things.

Plus, blah blah blah conspiracy yada yada.

Yes, I have a wireless CO detector that triggers my home alarm if it goes off. It's down in the basement near the furnace, which is the only thing in the house that can possibly emit CO.

I also carry one in the airplane whenever I fly... that's pretty common practice among the piston-flying crowd.
