Q: Are radiators a fire hazard?

What the heck, here's a follow-up question also dealing with radiators:

 

Is it safe to leave things drying on them overnight or is this a major fire hazard? As I just stated in a previous qustion, my radiator is pretty GD hot; not to mention it takes forever to air-dry clothes in the winter...

 

I've never really dealt with radiators before China so I don't really know, but I have this preconceived notion that if I leave jeans on it to dry over a long period of time that it'll catch fire and engulf me in flames. Not the way I want to go out.

Follow just 2 basic steps.

1. Never cover the air exhaust - which is ussualy on top , could be a mesh or like this, jsut some holes

2. do not open for full power

 

 I use it here already 3 years, and still fine, never fired my house. i got 2100W with 3 steps by 700W, i use just no.1 - 700w and something like 60-70% of power on the knob, without clothes. for cloth drying is enough keep like 50% over night, its safe.

I have never tried to use all 2000W with 100%, no need to.

Well I used to be a custodian of a dormitory buidling in the UK and that type of thing, i.e. clothes on or in front of a radiator were a breach of fire regulations and would result in a written formal warning of non compliance. So yes, I would say it most definitely is a fire hazard.

 

Just because you have never been killed playing Russian roulette does not in any way lessen the danger of it!

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
