Restroom fan at work from Aliens

The fan in the restroom here at work sounds EXACTLY like the automatic weapons fire in the movie "Aliens".

I know you know the sound. The choppy automatic weapon with the whiny sound.

Every time i go in there I cant shake the visuals in my head of these aliens getting blown away.

Plus, now when I watch Aliens, I won't be able to shake the visual of Save Ferris pinching off a loaf....

It sort of feels like that mens room in Gremlins 2 where the cowboy voice would announce "hey partner this is the MENS room" to emphasize the masculinity of the place.

Here, we get greeted to the space marines shooting aliens!
