  1. Last night night when I did my "forum and email round" I smelled something.
    It smelled like burnt dust or something.
    I didn't reflect on that and started to check me emails.
    Then suddenly it happened... My monitor bursted into flames.
    A thick and unhealthy pillar of smoke raised up from the inside of the monitor.
    I quickly unplugged everything and grabbed the burning monitor and threw it
    out in the corridor outside my aparment.
    My neighbour came home from a party and wondered what I was doing
    bent over my smoking monitor in the corridor. I had no good answer to that.
    It's kind of scary that my monitor started burning for nothing.
    It was at least 6 years old, so I guess that a lot of dust has gathered inside over the years.
    Lucky for me that I was awake and could handle it.
    What had happened if I was asleep when the monitor caught fire.

    Now I resume "work" with my neighbours old monitir, that he borrowed to me right after the incident.
    It's a whoppin' 14" screen compared to my old bigger 17" screen.
    It's so very old and bad that the letters I write now is blurry.
    I won't even see if I make any typos...

    I wonder if I can open the burnt monitor and blow all the dust away using a compressor or something.
    But it probably would be VERY VERY stuopid to do so.
    An old monitor like that could very well be a small electric bomb waiting for me to poke me finger inside and give me a highvoltage kiss of death.
    I really liked that monitor. But alas... I guess it's lost.

      yea one of the perks of our job was free batteries, from the cameras. blowing them up was fun. and the shock really hurt bad. sometimes the charing capcitor would explode

      1). Get a nice big steel screwdriver.

      Actually, a Jesus stick would be safer. :D

      good lord yall are stupid. what you do is take a spark plug. smash off all the white porcelin. but not to a dust. ib big chunks. then go to town. randomly toss this at any type of glass you can think of. i swear it will go srtaight through windshields withought making a single sound accept the sound of glass shattering. its weird as shit. do it to a monitor with a slingshot. nice kabooms. also. get some dry ice, and a water bottle, and a bow and arrow. alwase fun.
