The Safest Place In The World!

Well, okay, maybe not the safest place, but certainly in the top ten, has to be shower room "A" in the Travelers' Lounge at the Hong Kong International Airport. I was using this shower during a recent 8 hour layover and I noticed that there were two showerheads in the stall - one in the wall and one in the ceiling. Then I realized that the one in the ceiling wasn't a showerhead but a sprinklerhead as in fire protection sprinklerhead. I guess they're prepared in case someone spontaneously combusts while lathering or in case you've shut off the water to the shower and a fire spreads into the wet, tiled room? And I thought the U.S. had strict building codes.
