Back in the early 70's, I still had the family's 1952 vintage Magnavox.
I had removed it from the cabinet, so it was just a 24" picture tube on
top of a metal box, with knobs. When It finally died, I hauled it down
two flights of stairs to the driveway of my apt. house, on a major
campus intersection. I set it atop a milk crate, and began to shoot
1/2" ball bearings at it, with a wrist rocket, a powerful sling shot. A
passerby happened to have a Bolex, and started filming it. I never saw
the film. Those were the days... ;)
