“I took the batteries out of my carbon monoxide detector today. The loud beeping was giving me a headache and making me feel sick and dizzy” was posted on Reddit—Jokes on July 2, 2016.


Wikipedia: Carbon monoxide detector
A carbon monoxide detector or CO detector is a device that detects the presence of the carbon monoxide (CO) gas in order to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning. In the late 1990s Underwriters Laboratories changed their definition of a single station CO detector with a sound device in it to a carbon monoxide (CO) alarm. This applies to all CO safety alarms that meet UL 2034 standard[1]; however for passive indicators and system devices that meet UL 2075, UL refers to these as carbon monoxide detectors.
