One time I was trying to break an old monitor. We threw baseballs at the screen as hard as we could. My friend kicked it hard with a steel toe boot. Finally I took a cinder block, ran and threw it at the screen. It broke.

No really? I wouldn't think it would break...

Although those CRTs are pretty heavy duty.

The glass on those things is really thick. I've always wanted to take a 12 gauge to one and see what happens. Or hit a vacuum tube with a golf club. Or something.

The dumbest thing I ever did. I fried my motherboard when I was trying to put in a new video card a couple years back because I was doing it on the carpet lol.
