Big Red Button

I don't know what I need one of these for, but I need one. I just do.

Question is, what should it do? I mean, kicking off a build just doesn't seem significant enough. Bringing down the live systems perhaps?

Whatever it triggers needs to be acompanied by a klaxon, a red flashing light, and a voice counting calmly but loudly down from ten minutes, like the starship destruction sequence from Alien. Dry ice optional.

Looks like a go-live button to me.

Just don't send one to George Dubya - or do you think he already has one?

I can't decide whether it'd be good for something very trivial (a light switch perhaps?) or for something serious (would you hit that switch if you didn't know what it did?)

Either way, I want one too!
