But is it cool?

They've been testing the fire alarms at work lately. For hours on end, there will be bouts of an ear-splitting screech for 1-15 minutes at a time. Most of the folks rounded up earplugs. But I wanted more. Fortunately, the Peltor Solution II hearing protectors/headphones that fizzygeek and I take to auto races were in the trunk. So I rounded up them and the iPod, and replaced the shriek of the fire alarm system with tunes of my own choosing. The folks at work were impressed and amused. Apparently they only see industrial-strength hearing protection in such places as on aircraft carrier decks.
