would hurt to ground yourself (as you should when working with computers)

I enjoy taking things apart for the sake of taking them apart. Are you taking it apart in an attempt to fix it?

thats always fun, but to answer the question, you should be pretty safe, just watch the inky mess (i ruined a new carpet by doing the same thing). its not like a monitor where there are still charged electronics in there.

......oh, do unplug it, though.....
