Another Reason to be Paranoid

February 24, 2009

Story from The Gadget Blog


A 14-year-old boy in China was killed when his chair exploded, sending chunks of metal into his bung hole. The bleeding killed him. The alleged explosion came from the gas cylinder that was in the base of the chair, the part that allowed the user to adjust the seat up and down. The canister gets compressed when you sit on it, but can it actually creates enough energy to make the seat cushion explode.

I will never ever adjust another chair again.
