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??

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.

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

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"

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.

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?

You're like the human equivalent of the Transformers films, all HURDUR SMASHING IS COOL LOLZ.

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.
