Sorry, bed time and all that.

It does measure something in the air, but not gas, humidity, alcohol, or EMF. As I'm sitting here in my basement, it reads 61-62 units of measurement (it'd be a giveaway to mention what units), but it will read all the way up to a highly dangerous 140.

well, a finished basement could read 61 degrees farenheit. are we overthinking this? is it a thermometer of some sort?

btw, radon is measured in pCi/L, or picocuries per liter. 61 or 62 pCi/L would be bad.

Does it measure mold spores or air-borne bacteria?

So far bananafeller is the closest.

Sounds like it's time for a clue. I bought this in the automotive section of my local mega-mart.
