Did we turn our back on a more evolved and superior technology?

    No, everyone knew CRTs had advantages, for example CS players Kept Carts many years after LCDs became prevalent because many CRTs had 75 Hz support and the response time was low.

    The reason everyone stopped doing CRTs is because they are heavy, bulky and extra difficult to properly dispose of.

    That's just because of the way it scans. The effect is so tiny it literally doesn't matter.

    its very noticeable if and when you have superior eye sight / vision.

    and an equally superior brain to process the visuals.

    Apparently it only manifests itself in conditions like playing an Atari game so ok.

    What do you mean? Why would they just not give it to someone or sell it or something?

    How did people dispose of the old ones then?

    there is no difficulty disposing of them. normal people leave them out for the trash to pick up.

    Trashies won't pick them up any more. And if you take them to the dump or for recycling they will charge you a fee. I'm pretty sure there are regulations now against simply tossing them in a landfill.

    No, your opinion is worthless and your delusion of being correct or tuff is pathetic and piss weak. Kill yourself Dunning-Kruger faggot.

    scrappers will pick them up because theres a slab of pure copper wire that weighs several pounds (depending on the screen size) and the only issue with hazmat is there is a minescule amount of lead in the first few inches of where the electron guns are. you must live in some shit hole because where i live in civilization they dont/cant charge a fee because then people will take their hazmat out into the woods and dump it for free.

    Yes it does, in fact it specifically shows CRTs being taken out of the classification of "solid waste", which is the only waste that licensed SWTs can process. You need to abide by the standards regulated therein if you live in the US for CRTs. Which most often involves paying a fee.

    go back to the post where i specifically stated 'hazmat' and how that if a municipality charges for hazmat to be properly disposed of it will be improperly disposed of.

    remind me again how many local govt council meetings regarding such topics have you attended

    this is exactly what im talking about in the other thread about bans. you have no idea what youre talking about and should swallow a healthy dose of that stfu-stick

    What the fuck are you babbling about you stupid mother fucker?

    I said that part of the reason they stopped making CRTs is because they are difficult to properly dispose of. Everything beyond that is literally a fanfic you wrote about me.

    Originally posted by snoodles you mean that the PC boards manufactured in larger quantities for non-CRTs using the most hazardous chemicals available to human technology with trivial feasibility to recycle the components on those board is safer than a few ounces of lead? (also your cited article was incorrect in the weight of the lead in those CRTs. 'modern' CRTs have just a few ounces of lead within a few inches of the electron guns. the ones with 'pounds' are the humongous screens that nobody can afford anyway.

    youre not the brightest bulb in the tool shed.

    go google how PC boards are manufactured, retard.

    Why are you so mad, kid? It's making you delirious. I didn't cite an "article". If you disagree with the law, go legislate. I'm telling you a fact, that it is more difficult to recycle. Your delusions do not change this.
