I feel uncomfortable when he wore the gas mask while breaking those because I did that a lot when I was a teenager without any safety :\

Archeologists in 500 years are going to be really confused with what they find in their garden.

if you throw one of those to where it lands flat on concrete it will make a really loud "BOOM" sound and it will entirely dissolve all the glass.

It's a British Army Avon S10 Gas Mask. You can find plenty on eBay.

+domolords Dan was in the RLC, probably issue.
Report spam or abuse
+domolords Dunno, the muzzle looks way too elongated and tighter for a S10 and the optical lenses look far too large it also doesn't have the latex rubber frames in the lenses too, I don't think it's a regular S10, might be an SF10. But now looking at it, some S10/SF10 series had weird geometry based around the original design, maybe just a variant.

If you see a comment containing the word Mercury, feel free to disregard the comment unless it's made by an actual chemist.
Report spam or abuse
Why cant you breath it in?
Report spam or abuse
The thing that makes the bulb work, is a toxic gas in the glass called Mercury, same stuff as in thermometers. Not good to inhale or drink or anything like that. Same thing is in CFLs as well

I don't know why, but with the mask and bulbs, Dan looks like Kabal from Mortal Kombat.

+Adam Sweitzer Once again... you need to read your garbage articles better, take some time man.... It only lasts a couple seconds, 20 minutes of going back up and then doing it again and again... but falling down is not going to take 20 minutes.

I really hope those were mercury-free fluorescent bulbs. Mercury is not something you want to deliberately introduce into your environment. Even outdoors and in a mask, it's profoundly irresponsible (and potentially illegal) to intentionally disperse bioaccumulative toxins in any amount.

What regiment is Dan in?
Report spam or abuse
Those things are not cheap. But you really feel like smashing them into things because they feel like lightsabers.
Report spam or abuse
I hope they knew that fluorescent lights contain mercury
Report spam or abuse
+Kyle Bittle Hence the gas mask. The tiny amount of mercury in a fluorescent bulb is enough to cause mild poisoning (again, hence the gas mask), but not enough to significantly damage the environment in the long term.

Dropping florescent light bulbs horizontally onto a hard surface is much more spectacular and in real time slow mo would be awesome XD

I CAN PREDICT THE FUTURE. YouTube is going to selfishly squabble about..... the mercury in florescent light bulbs!!!! listen they KNEW about it, the were (pretty much) prepared, and that was a risk they were willing to take. now let's all give hugs and apologize and solve global warming :3

I can do it at home since i have the protection, but these guys were exposed to mercury vapors, first, he didn't had a filter, he just had the mask. That is Very TOXIC, its one of the most dangerous chemicals known to man
Report spam or abuse
"the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recommends evacuating and airing out a room for at least 15 minutes after breaking a fluorescent light bulb" OMG so dangerous. THE MOST TOXIC THING IN THE WORLD :0 one of the most dangerous chemicals known to man P.S. The EPA is the national frontier for being afraid of the world we live in.

I do not believe there are any long tube mercury free bulbs in existence.  These size bulbs typically contain as much as 40 mg of mercury. Regardless if the mask is efficient or not he immediately removed it. This has got to be one of the most irresponsible stunts I have seen. It seems few people here has a grasp of how this guy just contaminated not only himself but the environment as well. Don't they teach in school how dangerous breathing mercury vapors into the lungs can be?  Shame to see how these nitwits are encouraging others to do this same thing.

Welllllll today i did basically the same thing with one twice as big because it wouldn't fit in my bin, so i smacked it with a solid object in the middle to break it in half... Ahahaha ^.^''' Glad i wear glasses because it went boom and i'm glad the side of my pc tower was on because it got covered in some crap along with glass flung at it via the boom x.x Didn't expect that from a 5ish year old fluorescent light >< Was so funny hahaha.
