I did once encounter a very dangerous coolbox when camping with my friend's sister and BiL.

This cool box led to a couple of dangerous falls and was plainly giving off toxic fumes as all 6 of us has very bad headaches the following morning.

It contained 2 litres of Gordons export and 4 litres of tonic, and obviously underwent some strange chemical reaction. There may also have been some limes in there for prevention of scurvy, but I don't think they were hazardous.

I am pleased to report that there were no major incidents involving the potentially dangerous cool box on our weekend away. The food also stayed very cold for the whole 36 hours.

Phew.

Maybe she was worried that when you grew tired of listening to her you might put it over her head.

PeppermintCream is in possession of a cool box and a tinfoil blanket at the same campsite, is she now in danger of the cleaning fluid?
What is this effect?

I thought tinfoil was only for making into hats to keep out the signal from the aliens.

It's only gas appliances that are dangerous in tents.



Damian all fine until you cover your passive cool box in tinfoil, mix with kitchen cleaner...lethal.

PeppermintCreams, your MIL probably read this thread....

I am beginning to think it was the coolbox who made my dog shove my off the sim during the night, so that he was comfy and I was on the floor, because I know Comet would never do that.

Don't get too smug it's just like playing Russian roulette with a loaded gun. You have been warned...

After all you don't want your seven year old using telepathy on the dog to collect alcohol from the fridge or changing the TV channel to a kids program whilst your watching the news.




As posted on the other cool box thread, dogs are prone to mind control so you could make him sleep anywhere. Whilst your at it you could use mind control to make the dog make you a cuppa first thing in the morning...
