Re: Make Up a System (2.0)

Can anyone identify this?

I found this the other day at our local Asian buffet. It appears to be suppression related. Can anyone identify what this may be used for, or what it is?

Re: I'm so old I remember when...

We still had a 1978 Station Wagon as the family car, I don't remember what brand. Possibly Chevrolet. I remember 9/11. I ...

Re: Most Absurd Description of a Fire Alarm Sound
