I remember, and Google confirms, that the page had a short piece from a book about striking a bell and biding the danger. It seemed very appropriate. Why was it deleted?

I don't know, but it was probably from The Magician's Nephew by C. S. Lewis.

Contrast what? I'm sure there's a trope for something intentionally made to LOOK dangerous to conceal how harmless it is, or the other reverse where something dangerous looks completely safe.

Isn't there another example in Link to the Past? I seem to remember something about a sign with a guy next to it who'll chase the player.

Yea, I remember that sign. It says something like do not remove and do not bother the guy sitting next to it. You break it he follows you and yells at you for breaking his sign every 5 seconds.

Reminds me of the rules of living in Communist Czechoslovakia:
  • Don't think!
  • If you think, then don't read!
  • If you think and read, then don't write!
  • If you think, read, and write, then don't sign!
  • If you think, read, write, and sign, then don't wonder!

I just noticed that in the "210" episode of 30 Rock, at the very end, the set has a backdrop representing Kennith's home in Georgia with a shack labled "Schmuck's Bait".

Missing Movie: aside from that twilight zone ep and "The Box" I also remember a movie. (that was filmed in part in front of the new-at-the-time Fresno, Ca City Hall) where a guy was given a box and pushing the button would grant him any wish. The twist in the end was that he had to pay for everything mining on some alien colony for a gazillion years and immortality was the only thing that was free.

No, it isn't. And in addition, it absolutely isn't a Rick Roll.
