One of my neighbours set the fire alarm off last night – not a nice experience. As our alarms are networked, they were all going off – very, very loudly.

Simon was round and helped a rather shocked neighbour and me try to turn the damn thing off. Initially, I did want to take a chainsaw to the alarm panel, but decided against it – besides which, I don’t have a chainsaw.

After much thought into how to silence the siren, including removing the covers with a screwdriver, I discovered a key and an instruction manual. To everyone’s surprise (and relief), simply by turning a key and pressing a button, the alarm was silenced and normal serenity was restored.

Knowing how to silence the alarm could prove extremely useful. If I ever become influenced by the lyrics of The Prodigy, and become “a twisted fire starter”, I will be able to carry out my arson in secret.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
