I never post links to that auction site, but I came across something so 
awful to see, I had to share it...

Vintage Apple Green Phosphor Monitor Model A2M2010 Parts
eBay item number: 272010854926
a current auction

And when you think it's already cringe-worthy, more details show it's 
worse. Unbelievable. It's really bad. And...why auction it? Mysteries of 
the Web.

As a point of instruction: long exposure to high-voltage ozone and heat, 
will degrade plastics. It dissipates the elastomers. Translation: 
peanut-brittle. The rest is energy = mass X velocity squared. So, how 
far did this monitor fall, to bust it up so? any guesses? Was it even 
packed? The mystery deepens....as I said, it boggles the mind.
