Call me nutty, but, you may want to be careful what you touch inside a partially disassembled TV.  Even if it is unplugged.  So, fun to watch this, but don't try it at home.

Subby's headline failed to tell me what she was wearing.

"You should not let poets lie to you."

There is at least one bit of sense in... whatever that was.

I hate when idiots deny the science behind the virus. Like a .056% death rate per total population justifies a lockdown. And an over 99% survival rate justifies locking down. And the fact that only 350 people under the age of 35 have died justifies a lockdown. And the fact that 2 children died in CA justifies locking down the schools. I say, we take this to the next logical level and outlaw cars. A hell of a lot more people die from car crashes than the virus.

That's what I was trying to make a joke about.  And the caps, while you have to watch out for them, the tube itself can have a hellacious charge (you should discharge at the anode).  I haven't jacked with a crt in a while....last one was years ago - fried varistor (which is right next to those caps).

Wasn't expecting a Soylent Green plug in this thread, but here we are.

It's pretty straightforward:
1. Some poet poetplains her TV
2. She reads book that explains how TV actually works
3. Conclusion: "You should not let poets lie to you."

In 1989 the Sugarcubes released Live Zabor, a document of approximately a year's worth of touring as a headlining act. The live clips, of which there are many, come from three gigs. The core of the footage are several tracks recorded in London in May 1988 when they were supporting their debut album Life's Too Good-which are surrounded by footage from 1989 taped in Reykjavik, which include several cuts from Here Today, Tomorrow Next Week! A single track, "Speed Is the Key," was taped in Auburn, Alabama, in October 1988.


Sprinkled in among the live cuts are individual interview clips with each member of the band. Keyboardist Margrét Örnólfsdóttir or "Magga" takes viewers on a tour of a typical Icelandic supermarket, while drummer Sigtryggur Baldursson or "Siggi" essays an imitation of an Alabaman preacher that is fairly cringeworthy. Björk's contribution is a clip you may have seen in which she dismantles a TV set.

Meh.  I liked how Wendy O. Williams dismantled TV sets better:
