Need a break? Grab a Snickers.

No one seems to know where or why it's happening, but one thing is for sure, this guy has totally had it with corporate life.

A bizarre surveillance video is making the rounds on the Internet showing an office worker who suddenly gets violent and begins trashing not only his desk but the entire office, much to the shock of several coworkers.

The video, plus a few other cell phone clips from other angles, are posted on YouTube and other video sharing sites.

Sites like Break.com, Gizmodo.com and Digg have already featured the clip, leading to some speculation as to whether the event is staged.

The surveillance video is silent, but screaming and yelling can be heard in the alternate clips. It's not clear what language the people are speaking.

Alternate angle (audio) http://www.break.com/index/office-wo...ond-angle.html

I kinda disagree for the most part... Unless the CRT screen is really crappy, they can take higher frequencies as well as higher resolution, the downside is the size and weight, and they can disturb other elctronics some times, but image quality is mostly better...

Most of the world's CRTs are busy leaching lead into our drinking water from the landfills in which we casually tossed them

Anyway, the one thing that stands out to me is that the guy's desk is positioned conveniently in the center of the frame. That and the fact that it's on the internet screams "fake" to me. But funny nonetheless. I kept hoping he'd kill one of those little office geeks that were trying to subdue him.

I still use CRT monitors...

Nothing beats the quality of a nice 21" Flat CRT pumping out 1600x1200 in a game on max settings.

Fucking hate LCD's since I hate being locked to a resolution.

..and don't LCDs consume much more energy than CRTs also? Why did LCDs come into vogue - their size? That seems to be their only advantage.

I've read that most of the world's e-trash gets shipped to third world countries because it's so toxic, we'd rather pay them to take it than ruin what's left of our own eco-systems.

LCDS are significantly less power use actually.

Their main advantage is their size though, yes. Most serious gamers still use CRTS (I do). I'm probably going to give up and switch soon though.

Arent you thinking of LEDs using less power? I've never heard of LCD being energy efficient. Maybe I'm wrong, but I just remember reading somewhere that LCD and Plasma TVs use waaaayyy more energy than a CRT.

We had serious heat and electricity problems (brownouts, computer restarts, etc) with CRTs and they were fixed when the school finally forked out for the LCDs.

Considerably lower power usage.

17 inch LCD requires around 35 watts

19 inch LCD requires around 45 watts


Higher power usage, more than 200% to an LCD of equivalent size.

17 inch CRT requires around 90 watts

19 inch CRT requires around 110 watts

one is a magic crystal that twists to various degrees with minimal voltage applied, and then a little lamp behind it. to shine through onto one of the 3 colours...

The other is an ELECTRON GUY FIRING AWAY LINE FOR LINE at 60/70/90/whatever herz.

yeah, I found some data last night that show LCD and CRT power consumption in watts per square inch of screen size are about the same. Plasmas, however, in some cases, are twice as much.
