My Entertainment Unit Just Exploded

No, really.  I was sitting here, reading my email, when there was a horrible crash from the other end of the living room.  One of the glass doors of the entertainment unit had spontaneously disintegrated.  The rubble is all over the floor, still ticking and popping.

The glass is - was - curved, so I suspect it's been under internal stress the entire time and just suddenly gave way.  I have my air conditioner on, and it's in the line of the air stream, so perhaps the temperature differential added to that.

Somewhat unsettling, having furniture explode without warning like that.

1 My mother gave us a set of stressed-glass plates for wedding. Those things are like bombs.

2 Did the penguin on the top of your television set survive?

3 Pete, I hope you didn't have them stored in close proximity to each other, or in one of those fancy glass-fronted display cabinets.  The potential for chain-reaction detonation sounds alarming.

4 I have a Lenore playset on top of the TV, and since they're all dead already they came through it fine.
