One so called uneventful evening a coke glass expoloded in the palm of my hand.
My cat had knocked it off of the coffeee table and it had broke in two. After an hour or so i got the dustpan and brush to sweep it up. Phased by the lack of glass, water that was in it, i placed the bottom of the glass in the palm of my hand. Still crouched down looking at it after about a minute i felt a tickle in the palm of my hand and all of a sudden it exploded! It went up like champange out of a bttle and came down like glitter.
I thought my friend was going to pass out. I too have never seen anything like it! This was about four years ago. Anyone else had anything similar?
I've got a story that happened when I worked on a cinema.One day I went to open some glass doors for the costumers to go out of the cinema. When I put my right hand on the handler to star to open the door slowly the glass door brooke instantly and completly falling on peaces on the floor. When this happened one peace o glass cut my right hand. Later one colleag of mine told me it was a source of glass cancer the reason for the phenomenon.

The same thing could be at play however, cold water in the glass with the temperature of the room and it's already weakened state. May I inquirer was the room being heated at the time? If not did you feel any unusual changes of air pressure, or even a feeling of static electricity?
it's down to material thermal and stress dynamics.
