You might want to talk to him about carbon-monoxide poisoning. Just a thought. Drinking Beverage

Sleeping at a friend's house tonight might be prudent.

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.

Can you call 911 in advance and book an appointment? Consider

So many cats, so few good recipes.

You could call the fire dept.'s non-emergency number and let them explain the error in his thinking. You might piss him off, but, it's better than asphyxia.

You can lead a theist to reason, but, you cannot make him think.

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.

That might actually work. "This is the Fire Department calling and if you burn charcoal in an enclosed space you gonna die before we can get to you." Big Grin

Well hang on now. I think you're jumping to some conclusions here. Have you ever experienced asphyxia? I mean what if he wants to be asphyxiated. Not to mention, we don't really know what pissing the man off will do. What if he's the Hulk? That could have some serious consequences.

Ok, UA, have we beaten this horse enough? Go tell your dad to STOP PUTTING YOU AND YOUR FAMILY IN MORTAL DANGER.

Well, we have to think about how to go about this in a rational way.

If he cooks on that grill inside, you and your family are at risk for carbon monoxide poisoning and the smoke will effectively ruin your ceilings and all other things around it.

On the other hand...hot dogs.

You make a good argument. Consider
