CRT Trash Can

{mosimage}OK, there are an awful lot of cathode ray tube monitors headed towards landfills, and though this doodlepost article on how to turn a CRT into a trashcan doesn't really solve the problem of all the heavy metals inside the tube itself, it does elegantly turn trash into a receptacle for trash.  And, in general, is very humorous.  What better way to display your EcoGeekyness than by turning that monitor collecting dust in your basement into a dustbin for your office.  Plus, it's a perfect size for a plastic grocery bag to line it.  

But be careful, this definitely falls into the category of an extreme activity. You will, for example, be asked to decompress a vacuum tube with a shovel.

Coming from a computer geek perspective this may be a bad idea. Not because it is reusing an item that will undoubtedly fill up plenty of landfills due to the introduction of LCD's. But because cathode ray tubes can store a charge so powerful for so long that even a twenty year old monitor that has been out of levitra daily use for ten years can severly injure someone. I would not recommend to anyone to unscrew a CRT without consulting an electrical technician.
