Well the glass walled tube in there is vacuum sealed and when you wacked it you probably set off an implosion which
produced the undesirable sharding. Taping some newspaper across the front of the tube would have mitigated that some what.
As GS mentioned, capacitors can hold a charge for quite some time and they probably got pissed off after the ax blow.
Some side to side flexing would have been expected after the structural integrity of the case was compromised but she didn't
give way on you, so you dodged a bullet there.
Now the burning. Dude, there is some nasty shit in CRT's - leaded glass, phosphors and maybe even cadmium plus all the shit
in the plastic. Something to stay up wind of for sure.
Seems like you are none the worse for wear but don't be afraid to reach out in the future if you need to. Bellgab is here to help.
You are the only person (besides myself) who expressed some concern about how irresponsible was to burn that TV set.
I'm shocked that BellGab is that uncaring about environment and only two of us who had conscience and guts to comment on it.
...but perhaps there is a different issue here,
perhaps many people felt disgusted by that TV burning releasing toxins into the air, but didn't said anything because they
were afraid of being "punished"-"penalized" eliminated from the "circle" by other posters here ,so you said nothing
...but if this forum was set up in 4chan style , /no need for names for avatars ,no registration\.
(one option that could be interesting to try is to mix existing styles, keep names and avatars if someone likes to keep them,
but you could also post totally anonymously, and new poster could just post with out registering, like on 4chan)
...BellGab set up in that way I'm predicting will get much bigger traffic here, because there will be no politicking, /or very very little of it/
have to worry what other posters will think of them,...only their opinions would count.
...as to the level of civility in this 4chan style BellGab,...
well, not all boards on 4chan are allowed to be filthy like /x/ or like BellGab is now.
But that could be just left as it is now, with one adjustment,...No insulting of family members of other posters,
and no death, no suicide, no illness wishes like it was done/posted by (Redacted) aka Heather Wade in the past here,
before she started working for Art Bell in MITD Show.
But other names calling, fighting ,arguing, memes, are allowed,...no leash on that.
And of course all the other RULES set by BellGab Owner now.
If that TV burning was done by George Noory ,MV would need extra dedicated server to handle the traffic
that's how bellgabber's would be upset at that act of releasing toxins into the air for other humans to breathe,
but because is "one of their own" --bellgabber's are quiet, they have no opinion, they are afraid to speak up,
..but if one of them posted a YouTube video of a guy in Alaska burning stuff like mattresses, TV's , don't know what other
toxin releasing items were burn there ,I'm suspecting there would be social media shit hitting the fan.
You see you so often post here in different threads about how cold blooded money greedy businesses are polluting our Planet
but when an individual is doing the same [but on smaller scale
of course] ,you are sitting quiet
like cowards,..or like idiots who don't give a shit about environment, about fresh air, about clean soil, about clean water
Think about it...
