I am myself programming apprentice, nourished by the light of others.

comment Explanation for self-rupture glass is needed
I read through the article you provided, and it makes sense. At first, I did think the failure was caused by temperature, but then I questioned why my glass bowls and glass cups never busted themselves when temperature changed. I had even thought of air pressure, but then it would be very ridiculous to argue that why the air pressure must be super intensive to burst the glass but not burst a human being (in this case, me). I was ignorant of the name Toughened Glass before you brought up its attention. Now the chemical theory behind this spooky phenomenon does give me relief.
