Okay, First things first. 74% of the poll takers aren't fans of the new Knight Rider; not a big surprise.
More importantly though, the Big Bang Theory investigation thickens as there wasn't a clear cut answer about WTF that thing is on the apartment wall. There were two common themes from my question yesterday though: either a some sort of keyboard/piano action or an electrical grounding block thing. I'm leaning more towards the latter, but I'm still not convinced.
