Story has it that Qin Shihuang originally asked for 4000 teens to be buried alive to join him in the afterlife and had to be talked to accepting Terracotta solders as a compromise. But the claim that there are hundreds more warriors and Qin Shihuang tomb, alleged to be full of untold treasures surrounded by rivers of mercury, still to be located in the surrounding areas, that sound a bit untrue. Look at the thousands that die in mines every year, safety of the lower class is not a concern. It's still a long way to go to resist the oxidization and we need more time.

If authorities believed there was millions in treasure to discover they would do everything to unearth them. If the tombs exist the Chinese would have uncovered them. If we just unearth all the culture relics NOW, we will surely regret in the future.

The risks are higher for the elderly and patients with respiratory problems.

From 2003 [to] 2005, a total of 20 cases were reported through the CISS involving asphyxiations caused by leaving electric fans and air conditioners on while sleeping.

Where the idea came from is unclear, but fears about electric fans date almost to their introduction to Korea, with stories dating to the 1920s and 1930s warning of the risks of nausea, asphyxiation, and facial paralysis from the new technology.

One conspiracy theory is that the South Korean government created or perpetuated the myth as propaganda to curb the energy consumption of South Korean households during the 1970s energy crisis, but Slate reports that the myth is much older than that – dating almost as far back as the introduction of electric fans in Korea, and cites a 1927 article about "Strange Harm from Electric Fans".

If bodies are exposed to electric fans or air conditioners for too long, it causes [the] bodies to lose water and [causes] hypothermia.

It is the mausoleum of the first Chinese emperor Qin Shi Huang, who was buried with a wealth of artifacts and treasures.

To prevent asphyxiation, timers should be set, wind direction should be rotated, and doors should be left open.

Officials came in, semi excavated the site, put a roof over the top and left the excavating equipment laying around with reassurances there are still thousands yet undiscovered, and they are still working to dig more out. If there was more to find, I reckon the Chinese would have unearthed them by now. No soil has been removed from the site for twenty years, but the equipment is still there, as is the promise "we are still working on it." I reckon that is because there are no more. Since all the treasures have been buried for more than 2000 years, why not 30 or even 60 years??

During the summer, mainstream South Korean news sources regularly report alleged cases of fan death.

A typical example is this excerpt from the July 4, 2011, edition of The Korea Herald, an English-language newspaper: This article also noted there was "no evidence" the fan caused the death, however.
