I can't even reach my ceiling and my smoke detector sounds like a fleet
of fishing vessels. You can here it 8 floors high and it ALWAYS goes
off when i cook.... every time.
Want to make a list of things that would make a usable smoke detector?
A) a 1 hour kill switch attached to a string
B) a multi-varient sensor, like smoke and heat and photo-electric sensor
C) a FUCKING TIMER... most deadly fires are at night when you are sleeping
D) a wireless connection and GPS to call the fire department
E) An auto-turnoff after 10 minutes
F) an adjustable sensor because the kitchen aint the fucking bedroom.
a rubber saucer so when you get pissed at it and throw it like a frizby
across the the living room, it might bounce and still work...
