Burnt out bulbs, overheating and an inability to turn off are hazards HDTV owners have learned to live with, but now you should add one more: death from above. This Illinois family used to have an HDTV, before a chunk of ice from a plane crashed through their roof and destroyed it. Luckily it missed their sleeping teenage son but this is still a horrible tragedy...or a sign. Maybe they were one of the households still watching SD thinking it was high definition and had their blasphemy dealt with. Either way, you can look forward to an Ask HD Beat: Which TV is best for reducing glare from our inadvertent skylight? post in the near future.
