This does raise an interesting point: why are some CRTs susceptible and
not others? Poor quality control? What kind of mold is this anyway? And
what the hell is it feeding on? Based on what I know makes up a CRT, it
must be some mutant radioactive strain of mold that is probably not to be
trifled with.
