My father wants to use a CHARCOAL GRILL inside...
My father claimed that he was going to grill hot dogs tonight, and being that it is snowing where I am at currently, he has decided to bring a CHARCOAL GRILL INSIDE.

I want to tell him the dangers, but he will only stand in defiance because I am his son and he never listens to me when I give him advice.

My worst fear in the world is that of carbon monoxide inhalation, which has been cause by charcoal grills in homes in the past, let alone the fire hazard. I also know that if I suggest opening all of the windows in my home, that he will claim that there is no need.

My carbon monoxide knowledge stands in that carbon monoxide is produced from combustion of a fuel source (charcoal) and, once in the body, produces deoxyhemoglobin, quickly starving the brain of enough oxygen to survive. The result is a quick brain death from just a few dense inhalations, or poisoning from fewer, smaller inhalations.

It also doesn't help that I'm a bit of a hypochondriac about anything that could be a risk to my health, mainly my mental health. Brain death is not something that I want to experience.

I didn't know exactly where to put this problem on the forum, so I placed it in the casual coffee house, as it is not an emergency.

you could say the smoke would ruin every single surface of the house, clothes and everything will be ruined and he'll have to buy you new clothes.

You gonna die.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Bad, bad idea. Geez, cook the hotdogs in a frying pan.

Hotdogs are good sometimes but not work dying for.

I'm not anti-social. I'm pro-solitude. Sleepy

Yeah, um. Really don't do that.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Also, it may be illegal to do so in your area.

"My father wants to use a CHARCOAL GRILL inside..."

My first thought: Well that can't end badly, can it.

Sometimes you gotta thin the herd... Dodgy

Maybe he'll get the message if everyone else evacuates as soon as he lights it up.

Step 1. Go outside.

Step 2. Wait for the flashing lights signalling a Darwin Award has been presented. (The lights are usually transported to the site atop either an ambulance, fire truck, or both)

Step 3. ?

Step 4. Profit.

So many cats, so few good recipes.
