Default I had a glass bomb :(

Yup not a bottle bomb a glass bomb.
Saturday I'm sitting in the living room watching the TV and enjoying a few pints of my house pale. As I'm sitting there I hear this POP sound, it sounded like glass breaking.
I was like "hmm, that's strange".. Then a minute or so later I reach over and grab my glass. It's a 22oz pilsner style glass about half full, maybe a little more. I pick it up and whoosh beer everywhere, all over me, the chair, table and carpet. I was like WTF? Then I see it. The bottom of the glass is still on the table.

I have never seen that before. The glass broke all the way around the base and it held the beer fine until I picked it up. Man what a mess.

Was the glass hot? I once pulled a glass out of the dishwasher and immediately filled it with water from the sink. As soon as the water hit the glass, the bottom just dropped right out. It was pretty weird.

That's an odd one! Thankfully you weren't hurt!

That's really odd, if it was the temperature change that did it you'd expect the first beer to cause the damage.

Maybe the first one caused some hairline fractures that slowly spread?

if it cracked around the base it was almost certainly due to heat stress, but that doesnt mean it happened right before if finally broke it could have had a hair line crack from heat stress for weeks before if finally gave up.
