Change it to mother in law and there is not a jury in the land that would convict him

This. Click and Clack had a show years ago where they basically acknowledged that any modern car can probably burn through a whole tank of gas in your garage and not kill you.

Four hours?  Drafty garage or is it impossible to kill yourself with car exhaust anymore?

What ever happened to just beating your mother to death with a shovel in the garage and telling the police that you thought she was a rabid raccoon, which has more truth to it than meets the eye.

There has got to be a better way to write that headline
I keep picturing a comical car running down the street with said mother trying to run, flopping around a bit
All the time yelling, "Wait till your father gets home".

In some cities, the air coming out of the exhaust pipe is cleaner than when it went into the engine.

FTFA: "Police say they believe Adam was after his mother's money and that psychological abuse had been going on for several years".

Maybe I'm really tired, or maybe the sentence is poorly written, but who was the abuser and who was the abused?

"She reported the incident to the police department the next day."

I certainly hope that was because she was unable and not because she just finally got around to it

my wealthy grandmother suddenly developed a love of car restoration. i must have told a million people about it although she didn't sem to tell anyone. anyway, she was helping me restore a k-car project i had in my back yard for 20 years. i told her to be careful but the engine slipped off the lift and right onto her face. go figure. grandma loved digging her heels into the ground and pushing herself under a car. don't believe what some of the cops said.

Only at much higher concentrations. 0.1% carbon monoxide will kill you, but CO2 would need to be around 10%.

zabadu: Four hours?  Drafty garage or is it impossible to kill yourself with car exhaust anymore?


If it's a new enough car, then the exhaust is probably safe enough even after four hours. Emissions are much, much cleaner than they used to be. The CO levels are very much lower, especially once the catalytic converter heats up enough.

Ivo Shandor: buckler: Seems to me that CO2and N would do the job just fine.

Only at much higher concentrations. 0.1% carbon monoxide will kill you, but CO2 would need to be around 10%.


This. CO2 isn't toxic, it only displaces oxygen.

I think we're supposed to assume he was abusing her but I'm with you.

Every time I have to buy a (corporate) Mother's Day™  Card and a freakin Tickler Bouquet™, something similar to this runs through my mind. I'm certain corporate pressure and (corporate induced) societal expectations drove this gentleman to the breaking point. What a burden.

Thank you. A couple of months ago I stated the same thing on a different thread and got ridiculed by Fark's many automotive "experts". The simple fact is that a modern car is unlikely to kill you when left running in a garage.

Your story would have been more believable had you not claimed to be restoring a k-car.

must've been hot as hell in that garage after 4 hours, sheesh.

csb - fair-warning

Going home after closing the bar.  Drive home 20 miles.  Get off highway.  Waiting for the light to change.  Buildings on either side of the street.  Had the stereo cranked up to stay awake.  Realized I'd sat though a couple of greens sitting behind this early 70's Plymouth Fury. was busy counting tips and making deposit slip.  Turn down stereo.  Realize the engine is wound up tight, I mean it's bellowing.  It was one of the larger V8's (383?  440? shrug- dunno).  Got out to see if the driver was dead.  Nope just sleeping.  Noticed a light under the car.  It was the exhaust pipes glowing.  The window was open so being the good guy I was I reached in and turned the car to OFF.

The explosion was monumental.  I was deafened by it.  I'd known better but wasn't going to handle a dead drunk just to save his sorry ass.  Back in my truck and drove around him as he was yawning.  Didn't see any lights come on as I drove away.

She's 78, and since she still escaped from being handcuffed to a car I gather she is one tough old bird, but really, how hard can it be to bump off someone that old?

Cook up some sliced daffodil bulbs and claim they are onions, go find some wild mushrooms, heck just leave some chicken on the counter top on a warm day.... so many really simple options.
