Fact or Fiction
An ordinary, everyday house fan can decapitate you.
The answer is busted. Using a dummy to test the urban legend about a ceiling-fan decapitation, the Build Team discovered that the blades of a household fan spin too fast (26 mph) for an entire head to poke through to the neck, but also too slow to do any real damage. Turning on the fan with the neck already in place just broke the blades.
Even an industrial fan, which spins at 54 mph, and a fan created using the blades and engine of a lawnmover didn’t cause decapitation, although they did inflict deadly damage to the dummy’s head and neck.
Reason to party today – coz it’s happy hour somewhere in the world.
