Why so? They're perfectly safe as long as you don't try to cook them Happy

I did almost as silly stuff when

I was rather young. Sawed a golf ball in half with a hacksaw when I was 15. Got through the shell, what seemed to be rubber, then hit the core, which turned out to contain some kind of gas under pressure - which got me right in my right eye as I was quite close to the ball. Scared the crap out of me, but luckily no permanent damage.

I used to love "Lego" blocks too, and later, when I "discovered" the joy of fire, and Dad's Ronsonol, would melt those worn-out 'bricks'. I still have a scar on one of my fingers from an ill-advised "experiment". Caught hell from Dad and learned my lesson before I became a really dangerous nine year-old. But I still like fire, fascinating stuff.

Just as bad as this guy who heated spray paint cans. He was trying to spray with the cans, but being so cold where he was using them, caused inproper spraying, heating the cans abit resolved that. However, repeated attempts finallt found the weak link or can as it were and can exploded and caused an immediate fire, plus ruining the just applied paint job.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
