not fused with the glass envelope?

as i learned it, the voltage required by color crts made them into

i imagined the x-rays to be emitted in alignment with the electron

there's a passing nod to this in the simpson's ep where homer revisits
his childhood home and we see the shadow of where he used to lie in
front of the tv etched into the floor.
