It is law in Ontario for all houses with any fuel burning
The REAL stupidity was letting tne car continue to run and closing the
garage door. They are VERY lucky it was a late model vehicle that
produces only a maximum of 0.5% CO by volume at idle. Many run much
closer to 0.02% - which would take a lot of running in a tightly
sealed ara to kill you.
With a 50's or 60's era car half an hour could have killed everyone in

If it was a start stop engine, I could understand the owner not realising it was "on", but then it wouldn't be running.
If it wasn't a start stop engine, then she would have heard the engine running when she got out, surely? Unless she's deaf, she has no excuse.
While most Americans believe that getting rid of religion is an impossible goal, much of the developed world has already accomplished it. Any account of a ”god gene“ that causes the majority of Americans to helplessly organize their lives around ancient works of religious fiction must explain why so many inhabitants of other First World societies apparently lack such a gene. The level of atheism throughout the rest of the developed world refutes any argument that religion is somehow a moral necessity. Countries like Norway, Iceland, Australia, Canada, Sweden, Switzerland, Belgium, Japan, the Netherlands, Denmark and the United Kingdom are among the least religious societies on Earth. According to the United Nations’ Human Development Report (2005) they are also the healthiest, as indicated by measures of life expectancy, adult literacy, per capita income, educational attainment, gender equality, homicide rate and infant mortality. Conversely, the 50 nations now ranked lowest in
terms of human development are unwaveringly religious.

For some reason a lot of Brits think Arabs are human.
A blonde was playing Trivial Pursuit one night. It was her turn. She rolled the dice and she Landed on Science & Nature.
Her question was "If you are in a vacuum and someone calls your name, can you hear it?"
There would have to be a lot of noise. Unless she came home to find her husband using a bandsaw in the garage? Anyway, why the fuck would you forget to switch off your car? I leave my key in the ignition, and I don't forget to switch it off. It's part of the second nature stuff I do when I stop, including putting it in gear, applying the handbrake etc.
