From Gizmodo:

Well, stories don't get much worse than this. A 14-year-old boy in China was killed when his chair exploded, sending chunks of metal into his rectum. The bleeding this caused 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 create enough energy to make the seat cushion explode like that and kill a man? I doubt it, but this is what people are reporting.
In other news, I am working from a beanbag from now on. Sweet merciful crap.
Apparently the air piston in some Chinese teenager's chair exploded and sent him to a brutal, bloody death. The piston shot out through the chair straight up his rectum. He ended up bleeding to death.

If you brought your computer chair for less then $50, Id buy a new one. Especially if it was made in China.

  1. Yup, as with the all China's fault post...

    My dad puts this succintly. In that if things are too cheap he always thinks there is something wrong with it.

    Heh back in the 1990s he bought a Tiny Computer set, desk chair and everything, it came with an incredibly flimsy chair you wouldn't want to put any weight on!

  2. I think I owned that brand of chair! o_O

    Thankfully, all that happened is that the back broke off and I threw it away.

  3. If you look under you chair you should find that there is a Metal plate between the top of the Gas Cylinder and the bottom of the Seat, if your Chair does not have said Metal I would highly advise you get rid of it immediately.

    Even most inexpensive chairs sold in North America have this, and they are legally required to, to prevent this very thing from happening.
