Dying is unlikely, but success is also unlikely. A normal, everyday, average drill bit is just going to break and shatter the glass. Get yourself the following items: -A glass or tile drill bit from the hardware store ($5-10 in Canada).. -Safety goggles. -A properly fitted dust mask. Wear the safety goggles and dust mask, and use the special drill bit to grind your way slowly through the glass. Ground glass is bad news for your lungs, so clean it up before you remove the mask.
