1. @serotonin reuptake: they DO NOT make tv’s like they used to … imagine me as a kid [way back in ’93] with a plummer stick throwing it in the center of a Goldstar TV screen … my dad had to fix it and after 3 hours it was working again … try that now-a-days …

  2. @serotonin reuptake: Actually, implode would be the correct term; to function properly, cathode ray tubes require almost perfect vacuum inside of them.

    @Fat_n_Fluffy86: Due to the fact that CRTs have to withstand atmospheric pressure (which is a lot more than you realize), the glass the tube is made of has to be very thick; thus, they are more resistant to shock.
