She's a comedian - it's well worth reading more of her Twitter.
Yeah, I knew this was some joke. It's wayyyy too obvious, but Reddit is extremely gullible.
Wait. People were taking this seriously? I've seen this joke posted here several times and I chuckle every time I see it.
Have you looked around lately?
Lots of idiots taking nonsense seriously.
>Lots of idiots taking nonsense seriously.
Have you heard about President Trump, he was their leader.
IS their leader. Going to be reinstated *any* minute now...
As an American, I sure hope not. But I may just be one of the rare sane ones...
Rest assured, it's not even possible.
Let's hope and pray my friend

It’s not a story the republicans will tell you
5. That’s the average number of comments I have to scroll down to before finding someone turning absolutely any type of post into political commentary.
Congratulations on being a living and breathing meme.
I did the same thing and now I am dead 🤷🏼♂️
At this point everything is a joke.
I'll remember that next time I look in the mirror.
You wont have to look in a mirror to remind yourself.
People do say reality is stranger than fiction though - at least fiction still needs to stick to possibilities and logic.
It’s almost word for word a joke from the movie Garden State (2004), though I doubt that it was first anyone had said it then either.
That’s ridiculous, women can’t tell jokes. That’s why I either get angry when a women tells a joke or refuse to believe they are joking.
Ik it's a joke, but i've seen ppl who are actually that dumb
Na it’s probably real. I diiid hn same hing coz sheer beeping. Nite
No one was taking it as anything but a joke though???
Ok but someone on reddit has literally had their life saved by someone suspecting carbon monoxide poisoning before it was too late for them. So not as far fetched as it seems.
To be strictly fair, people are so spectacularly dumb irl and on here, particularly in certain groups, that it would be 100% within expectations of stupidity to hear someone say this seriously.
To be fair, this is the internet, and we all know there are actually people this stupid out there.
Everyone knows it’s a joke bro
in this day and age, it's hard to tell who's a real comedian
And here I thought it was some Karen joke
You seem stable, in touch with reality, and not at all like you get your opinions from doomscrolling memes.
What did they say
Iirc "it's never worth reading twitter" or something.
Usual completely irrelevant, dumbfuck generalizations from a vapid, reactive mind.
Reminds me of the guy who spent like 20 minutes taking a shit in a toilet full of bleach, weird way to commit suicide.
It was on r/tifu a few days ago, guy fills toilet he rarely uses with bleach and forgets about it, has to shit but brother is using other toilet, spends like 20 minutes poisoning himself with chlorine gas.
Mf rlly couldn't flush earlier?
My farts may be lethal but at least they don't contain chlorine. Although I killed my proctologist and bleached his hair.
I tried googling this and it either seems like a common occurrence or a common lie.
if you know a better place to store bleach besides a spare functioning toilet I'd like to hear it!
My body is ready.
Great way to get rid of the Covid.
It's a lie.
First, it takes a fairly short time for bleach to break doen when exposed to air. It even breaks down in a sealed container.
Second, poop is unlikely to contain any ammonia (urine does), and therefore very unlikely to cause this reaction. Several acidic cleaners can cause toxic chloramine gas to be released, but poop is really unlikely to do that.
I just read it. He said he urinated and heard a foam like sound.
He also used NINETY percent bleach in the bucket
The ... dead guy said this? Bucket? Ninety percent of the volume was 5% (w/v%) household bleach, or he somehow got his hands on bleach that was 45x stronger..?
He didn't die, but he had burn effects from the bleach.
But while pooping theres always also some peeing?
Hmm seems unlikely he could’ve done this with household bleach, it’s toxic but for the most part idiot proof, especially something like this. He would’ve needed some industrial strength bleach. He also would’ve needed WC with absolutely no ventilation, so that when he walked into the WC the chlorine should’ve knocked him over… so to get past all those obstacles…he’s a Darwin Award winner for sure!
This actually happened to my grandmother. The CO detector went off so she assumed the batteries needed replacing. She replaced them, but it continued to go off, so she threw it out and meant to get a new one, but forgot. Months later my mom went into the basement to get some Christmas decorations for her and the walls were dripping with condensation. The chimney was plugged with pine needles and had been venting into the basement. After they cleared the clog my grandma said she felt years younger. She just thought she was getting old... She has COPD so she sleeps with an oxygen mask, which is probably the only thing that kept her alive through those months.
I get it, but just funny how the thought process was "this damn thing is broken!", wonder how long until they print "Do not disregard, it isn't broken" on the front of them.
manufacturers probably should change the beep into : "this room is filled with poisonous gas!" cycling into different languages.
so even the old/senile would get the gist of it.
People are sometimes weird.
I live in an apartment and when I got back from work the other day, there was a fire alarm in one of the other apartments.
I've waited a couple minutes and then called the fire department.
When they arrived, most people in the building came by out of curiosity, and when I asked "did none of you heard it?" they all said they didn't care much. A woman even said "I turned the volume up on my tv because it annoyed me"
It turned out something was burning, for more than 3 hours.
These types of things are why I like more "smart home" stuff. It's a shame it's basically the wild west in terms of what you can get and how to set them up...
> I like more "smart home" stuff
Yeah? well wait till your "smart" carbon monoxide detector stops working due to a failed update, a loss of internet connectivity, or a subscription renewal issue.
Nor saying they're perfect. They have a long way to go to be reliable devices, but it would certainly help.
standardization benefits everyone. Hell look at desktops. You can keep one running for decades at minimal cost just by swapping out parts every so often.
Your smart phone? That'll be $200 to replace the battery every four years please.
I feel like $200 every four years is very inexpensive to keep a desktop modern.
No-one said anything about modern, I said functional. Wanna drop $1000 on a new phone every 4 years instead? You don't need to upgrade all the time, if it works it works. Stop keeping up with the joneses.
Power supplies can last 5-10 years, and a second hand one costs around $20 to replace. Typically around $40-50 new.
an ssd should last around 10 years. The samsung 860 evo 500gb, which is higher end price wise I'd say, is $85 with covid pricing. ssds have the added benefit of not breaking when you drop them in case you move a lot.
Cpus will last around 20-30 years before experiencing any wear and tear, and advancements are coming slower and slower a ton of older processors still hold up today.
motherboard's are a bit finnicky, but it's usually the caps on them that die first. This is the #1 reason why old pcs are slow. Looking at anywhere from 3-10 year lifespan but if you know how to solder you can extend it as long as you replace the caps before they leak and damage the board. If they look puffy it's time to go! Around $50 to replace the whole board.
Cheap pc fans tend to last 3-6 years. Good quality ones can last longer, and doing maintenance on em will make them last longer still. $30 for a decent 5 pack.
Ram lasts pretty much forever IF you don't damage it (such as esd when touching it) this is why ram often comes with a lifetime warranty.
A case? Will last forever. It's a box.
So, lets say, every 10 years. That comes to...$195 on the low end? $325 on the high end? If you only buy new parts and don't maintain/repair them.
On the flipside, my current "modern" pc cost me around $400 to build. Ryzen 5 2400g, 8gb gb of ram. $20 used hard drive. b-350 motherboard. Case. 400w power supply. Beat dark souls 3 on it.
The ryzen 5 2400g back then was $140, I bought it the month it came out.
The case was $40? new.
$20 hard drive.
8gb of ram back then was around $100 according to google. which is more than double of where the price typically sits.
400w psu was $40
Fans, again, $30.
Motherboard was around $60?
A little more than $400. But still roughly $400.
I've since added a SSD and another 8gb stick of ram which brought my total cost up to $600. 3 years in, works like a charm. Don't expect to do any work on it for another few years.
I’m not saying she wasn’t dumb for discarding the thing. I still give her grief for it (she’s not that senile yet).
Yeah, I get it in terms of CO poisoning has that kind of effect.
Oh that makes a lot of sense. Now I feel bad.
This also actually happened to Weird Al Yankovic's parents. They died of carbon monoxide poisoning while he was on tour.
Wow that’s wild and I’m glad she made it through. CO2 alarms should come with instructions on what causes the build up so people know why they are going off IMO
Minor correction, it’s CO (carbon monoxide) that’s the really dangerous one. CO2 (carbon dioxide) is something we exhale.
It’s almost always fuel burning. Whether it’s your furnace, hot water heater, dryer, a grill, or your car engine... it’s an inevitable byproduct of burning hydrocarbons (gasoline, natural gas, propane, etc.). Doing any of that in your home is inherently dangerous and it should be properly vented.
Wonder if Ruthe made it?
She's a comedian
In japan they say idiots live longer
Old but gold
I think I didn't get it
Carbon monoxide poisining gives those symptoms and the alarm was going off exactly as intended, because it detected CO.
Sure mate. Cheers.
Nice name mate
So it doesn't cause the decrease of intelligence...
Well technically you have a 0 IQ, when you are dead.
Relax,have a cigarette..
wasn’t this in an episode of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia
See you in the morning!
Have that furnace heat exchanger inspected
What an Unusual Theory
Wow this kinda checks out as a holup, I can’t believe it
Can I post this again tomorrow?
Wait at least 2 weeks , thats the standard.
added OP to my block list. Karma farmers are so boring.
But only if you screenshot it, resize to at most 60%, and save as JPEG.
This is what I’m on the sub for. Finally some good content
Natural selection at its finest
I know this is just a joke, but it’s almost like an analogy about anti-vaxxer/anti-masker/covid-hoaxer idiocy, and it’s brilliant!
Haha I was thinking the same thing!
Oof size: Maximum
Comedy for the Trump Belt
I know it's a joke.. but that's anti-vaxx thinking in a nutshell.
This is soooooo true for sooooooo many
I hope "Phoenix" isn't just a name
Good explanation of the difference between correlation and causation
Interesting point, older people can’t hear the alarms. They need to have more base or bright lighting
Hopefully she is now in a quieter place 😌
Plus, we all know it's a joke
She probably works for WebMD
Damn I had that problem when i tried to turn on my stove inside but the stove wouldn’t ignite I think it’s too dark better go turn on the light
My dad happened to say the same thing 'beeping made me crazy so I threw it off' and I laughed so hard. Note that we had a really cheep alarm that went off even with the windows open and in any part of the house, luckily we never actually had a carbon monoxide incident.
She lived to tell the tale
Wait try to use a bird in a cage ... if the bird sleep everything is fine
Ruthe Phoenix was never seen again.
That’s what anti-vaxxers sounds like
This was so funny iy took my breath away
"survival of the fittest"
I swear this happened: I worked at a hardware store in Chicago. We had a lot of maintenance guys come in that were in charge of rentals in the area. Some were good and some were cheap.
One guy bought a carbon monoxide detector in the morning (to replace a faulty one at tenants request) and was back before lunch to return it because it "all the time, beep beep beep". The clerk pointed out that it was not beeping now, (note: this is a device with a disposable battery and is always on once activated.) he suggested the maintenance guy call the fire department. Not sure of the outcome here.
Same store, different guy buys 10 bug bombs (probably trying to rid bedbugs) clerk tells him very frankly to be sure all pilot lights are out and windows open. Guy does not speak English well and didn't understand the importance of that info. Couple hours later, an explosion shattered most windows in the kitchen and deck of an apartment just a few thousand feet away. Bomb squad responds and closes off blocks thinking it was some sort of terrorist thing.
You could write a book of all the things I saw there....
Just lay down on the floor for a while
She is a intellectually superior being
I wonder if the house is full of post it notes
It's OK, you're fine, just take a couple of deep breaths
Also a good metaphor for the people who deny the existence of covid 19...
I just sleep through them.
You joke but I had this at work once.
How do we stop it beeping so we can go back into the lab? I know what I did to set the alarm off so it’s ok 🤔🙄
I actually had that alarm,my guy Jared was to lazy to get up.Oh,Jared!
Well at least she lived to tell about it
No alarms and no surprised
The satire is affecting my nips.
Oh good thinking make sure to take the batteries out of the smoke detector also those can get loud too
ಠ_ಠ Is someone gonna tell her?
And watch yourself on that ladder, you could get dizzy….
Well this time of year I'd look into the flue pipe for the water heater
Natural selection let it happen just let it happen....
it was a joke
This has to be a troll/joke. No-one can be THAT stupid.
she's a comedian
That's my point...
u got the iq of a foetus?
you don't know what that is?
Yes, I'm laughing at you because that's how dumb-ass Brits spell "fetus".
Your grammar is really bad and you want to talk about IQ points? "u got the iq of a foetus"... LMFAOOO!
ok I'll go eat fish and chips and shove Yorkshire puddings up my arse ooh look at me I'm from 'murca with good grammar in a language thats called English. thats all their is too it
Punctuation is important, Mr. IQ-man.
keep talking and we will colonise you again
High all mighty dumb dumb.
Natural selection at it again.....
Alarm - "So you have chosen death."
Darwin Award 🥈
But did she die?
Its, a, satire
