What the hell were they doing to that poor plasma? I've never seen anything like that before - very interesting how they melted down the panel.

That was pretty impressive! I couldn't stop staring at it.

Judging from the description under the video, I gather that they were microwaving the television. Wow!

The fact that this moron didn't put on face/eye protection until 2:30 into the video.... He's probably a Darwin Awards winner for 2012.

And you may ask yourself well how did I get here?
And you may ask yourself am I right? Am I wrong?
And you may say to yourself: What have I done?!

That's just slight IR. It will go away within a few hours.

I felt like I needed protective goggles looking at it on my laptop.
