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.

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.
