Okay so basically, me and my friend were at the pawn shop today, and we found a broken 1999 compaq monitor that didnt work and they're giving it away for free. Should we take it off their hands and SMASH it, and then make a video about it??

I don't think it has any power whatevers that would still have power like a desktop so why not?

Is it the old vacuum ones? yeah you shouldn't do that...


Dropping it off the roof would be great though
It's over simplified, So what!

Yes.

Be sure to plug it in first. And make sure it's properly grounded.


For the love of god DO NOT TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY.

Seems kind of dangerous, what do your parents say?
She was born in 1898 in a barn. She died on the thirty-seventh floor of a skyscraper. She's an astronaut.

Yes, but only if you roll in the debris afterwards.

When you smash it, the vacuum tube inside will break, sucking in some things that are in close range, you know, dust, plastic, etc. This will stop very quickly, and you'll be left with very thick, very jagged, and very sharp glass.

I guess you'll just have to

How about this, edmodo? You pretend you never saw that monitor, and I pretend that you never made this thread? Deal? Deal!

Unless this is a new UG joke thing like 'ackward', but I see this shit so much that I doubt it's a joke.

Addicting isn't a word?!

If its an old CRT then they can hold several thousand, yes that's right several thousands volts even after being unplugged for months, and they have to be discharged before you can work on them, so very, very dangerous.

However I still voted "Yes"

Ummmm, it's from 1999 and it doesnt work, the guy behind the counter at the pawn shop said the inner wiring was fried.

Dissasemble it to learn more about electronics then create a video telling us what you learnt.

Sometimes I wish this board had mod challenges like something awful.

It's almost impossible to get people to do things they sign up for on this site. We have tried numerous user participation things in the past and most flopped.

Yea, the Gladiator Pit had challenges but no one would do them. My challenger (Eastwinn) wouldn't even sing a SPongebob song

You should still recycle it though.

I miss Gladiator Pit. Can something be started up again?

There are parts of it that could easily be taken out and re-used by someone that knows what they're doing, why don't you just think?

I'll consider it, I spent ages categorizing everyone and what they were willing to do as a forfeit. Then 3 weeks running no one did one. Complete waste of my time in the end first time round.

Yeah, it was a shame. Can't even remember if I got a go at it or not.

I just remember it was not long after the Represent V Jewchords thread.
