It's not that hard to pop a string if you're not careful, I've popped my A string on cello a few times before I got it right, most likely his string was older and popped out of age not stupidity on his part.

omg, I can totally relate though. ever since I got my uke, I'm scared of that happening.
thanks a lot for reaffirming my phobia.

Not necessarily. Over time, bass strings can just become weak. The screeching noise OP heard was probably a few of the threads breaking, and it would take a tremendous amount of force to snap a thick-gauge bass string from tightening it alone.

It is not only bass strings that eventually wear out... Any kind of metal string will eventually unravel and even the slightest tuning can make it snap. I've had my A string on my viola snap while I was playing... that hurt like a bitch.

Today, I took a nap in my car right after finishing up at work. I was woken up by a hobo sitting in the passenger seat, watching me sleep. Apparently, he'd managed to unlock the door with a wire hanger. FML

Today, my dad bought me a new laptop for my birthday. That's because he wants to use my old laptop for work, which is more expensive, has better specs, runs faster, and has a wider screen than my new computer. I just got a downgraded laptop as my birthday present. FML
