Not fiction[edit]

This is not fictional technology, is it? Since it does exist.

It doesnt mention for the 'comic' / 'mad scientist' part of the article that the button often is red. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:01, 6 November 2005 (UTC)


Point for discussion: Is the section regarding the self destruct system having become clichéd and a weak plot device, followed by a comment that "unsurprisingly" it features in episodes of Star Trek, evidence of lack of Neutral Point of View? The word "unsurprisingly" itself is probably inappropriate, I would submit 01:07, 21 January 2006 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk)

Sea Strainer[edit]

When the Germans tried to scuttle their submarines, they'd remove a plate to let in water. I think it was called a sea strainer. This was a key part of the story behind the sub sitting in the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry. --Mdwyer (talk) 16:34, 10 July 2008 (UTC)
