Probably one of the most interesting descriptions I've read.

Per the ad: "old As Is
Photo for example only.

Kenmore - Vintage Yellow. Previous owner lived to 101. Broken wheel lets the barrel sag. Still dries! Now features slam dancing and dinosaur noises. Similar to style in picture, definitely not cursed.

Whirlpool (GAS) - Classic White Dryer. Saved 5 lives from carbon monoxide poisoning. Top worn from storage. Tumbles, needs a heating element. Favorite dryer. 9/10, will miss. Worth the gas bill.

$40 per dryer/$70 for the pair. Pick up preferred, will help load. Local delivery not guaranteed.

Text, email, or leave a voicemail."

WTF? Why post a picture at all? How did a gas dryer save a family from CO poisoning and what sort of heating element does it need; igniter, gas valve coil? Maybe it's not gas.

Simple: the dryer was hooked up to an OXYGEN TANK!

CO is not CO2 and it would be very dangerous to have pure oxygen in the atmosphere of a house. Does anyone remember the warnings on hospital room doors warning that oxygen was in use so no smoking back in the days when oxygen was administered under a tent and hospitals used to allow smoking?

I wonder what would happen if someone inhaled oxygen enriched air and then puffed out on a cigarette.
