: New:

With another wildfire season approaching, I finally got off my butt and bought an air purifier. At last, I am ready for wildfires! (Not really; I wouldn't mind if we skipped the wildfires this year/forever. Please?)

I wasn't ready for the strong plastic smell that the purifier emitted when I unwrapped it. Here's a device marketed to folks with sensitive schnozzes, and it introduces itself by stinking up the place. I didn't keel over; I doubt this thing outgassed dangerous levels of volatile whatchamacallits.

But as a member of Generation X, I am of course very sensitive to all levels of irony and this situation has plenty.
