Bullshit, and I won't promote that kind of attitude toward monitor safety, ESPECIALLY with those who don't know better. You never even mentioned turning the darned thing off, discharging, or unplugging it. People don't just assume that.

NOW you want to worry about safety?

If that is really the only viable option, and it was fairly obvious from the get go, I would not consider making him heat the tube and play with HV "making it easy" on him.
