thanks, I'll keep that in mind... fortunately, though, the situation is not quite as black-and-white as your paranoid adage suggests.
we don't sleep in the shed, there is no significant exchange of air from the shed into the airstream, the shed is not airtight, we don't leave the furnace on over night, we leave a window open a crack, and we have a carbon monoxide detector in the living quarters that is rated to function down to -40°F.
see, you try to understand the potential problem, which is death by inhalation of air with a high concentration of CO, and then you use your innate human rationality to make sure that it's not a possibility. or... you can make all your decisions based on irrational fear and call it a day.
