That's terrible. I consider myself a very sensible person, but this sort of thing completely circumvents my sense of reason. I swear my very life is built around little red buttons and other things of the sort. If I see a little red button, I have to push it, half because it's red and half because it says not to. Take Target, for instance (the store). The Target closest to me has two floors and they have an escalator and a cart escalator between. There's a sign on the cart escalator that says "Carts Only." What the heck? Are they just asking me to do it? And if that's not obvious enough, what's Target's logo? That's right: a big freaking red button-like thingy.

Fortunately, I just got a job as a test engineer. I get to design all of my tests with a big red button, and if I'm feeling particularly like me, I can add a label to it that says "Do not push" or "Authorized Personel Only." The latter isn't quite as exciting because I'm technically authorized, but variety never hurts.

Just in case there are any fans of the movie The Fifth Element reading this:

Quote:
ZORG
I like killers. A real dyed in the wool killer. Cold-blooded. Clean. Methodical. Thorough. A killer, when he picked up the ZF1, would've immediately asked about the little red button on the bottom of the gun.

77 INT. HALLWAY ZORG'S WAREHOUSE - DAY

The warriors have all taken a weapon. One of them inspects his ZF1. He turns it over and notices the little red button. He presses it.

78 EXT. OUTSIDE ZORG'S WAREHOUSE - DAY

Behind Zorg, an ear-shattering explosion levels the warehouse.

If there really is a white button, it's some kind of riddle. There's no other links on the page.
