Again with what I said before... Nothing against you, but I think we should start topics only when we need to, instead of having them "just be there"

But that's just my opinion, nothing against you, I just feel that it puts more clutter on the boards

ok, two things seen

1. During a fedEX ground commercial, An RSS can be clearly seen above a guy's head.

2. During a furniture commercial, a red gentex commander (unknown version) can be spotted near the entrance.

the movie The Thing (the 1982 version), at exactly 30 minutes in, shows a BG-6 being pulled when macready (kurt russell) hears suspicious noises. The BG-6 has some weird glass cover over the handle, and when he pulls it, of course, it springs back up without latching.

in The Blob (the 1958 version) there is a part where you hear numerous air raid and FD sirens blaring at night.

I saw an alarm go off in... I think 24. It was a bell. They smashed it.

Tango and Cash- Various Klaxons at different scenes, and what sounds like a Thunderbolt 1000 or 1000T on one of the prison escape scenes. Judging by the movie's age, the Thunderbolt must not be very old.

During an episode of Medium, a guy who sees the future...he sees the hospital being blown up while he's "under." Slow whoops can be heard, and you can see strobes flashing.

There's an episode of The Simpsons where

Abe needs a new battery for his pacemaker. Homer tells him to get it from the smoke detector. Cut to Abe hanging from the smoke alarm, his pacemaker fries and starts smoking, and the smoke detector emits a few short beeps

In an episode of House, not a fire alarm, but in the elevator, a mobster leans over and presses the emergency shutoff, and that causes a bell to ring for a half second. THe same for when they re-enable the elevator

I was watching Good Morning America this morning and I saw a panel (Faraday?) in the background, with a red pull station next to it, but the camera moved so fast that I didn't make out what it was.

In "Yokel Chords" on "The Simpsons," you can see a Simplex T-bar pull station at Krustylu Studios. It seems that the T-bars are popular in Springfield!
