I've mentioned before that the fire alarm in my building sounds like you're on a submarine that's about to dive. This afternoon the alarm went off, and I imperiled myself for thirty seconds or so to record a little sample for you to hear (mp2 file).

Of course I got downstairs (via the stairs, mind you) to find that the alarm was due to water leaking onto the control panel on the ground level. Sort of an anti-fire.
