Some website said that the dust on tv monitors are radioactive.  
(  Mine was.  But not the dust on the table or 
elsewhere.  Is it becasue the TV makes the dust radioactive?  Or is it the 
static of the TV preferes to attract radioactive dust?  I guess my TV would be 
useful for cleaning up nuclear accidents.
