    Toshiba 32" CRT similar to this but 5 years older and a bit smaller https://www.cnet.com/uk/products/toshiba-36zp48/review/

    Absolute top of the range BITD and burglar proof. It shows no sign of stopping or dropping quality.

    That said plenty on Google about it.

    Just has to be big enough to see the nipples, and far enough away so as not to get jizz on the screen.....

    You mean it's hard for a burglar to whack you with it due to the fact it is fecking heavy? Burglars don't steal TVs any more from people's house.

    1. ID stuff like passports and driving licences
    2. Money stuff like cash and credit/debit cards especially those with chips. Also jewellery.
    3. Small higher value electrical goods like laptops, mobile phones and games consoles
    4. Vehicular stuff like cars, push bikes*, motorbikes and scooters - though they tend to be stolen to order
    5. Garden stuff - people have weird stuff stolen from their gardens so it can be plants, ornaments, bricks or whatever.
    6. Baby buggies

    In short it needs to be small enough to hide easy or a means of escape as well. The weird stuff like the garden stuff I guess it's just opportunists with vans.

    *You push bike just needs to be worth more than £200 and someone will try and steal it.

    This is your argument for not believe that TV's are not stolen.
    TVs are stolen too, and your pants ...

    Use a bit of common sense why would you steal a 55 inch TV from a home which you may have to get off the wall and detangle cables from speakers, DVD players, Sky box, etc from it plus get it outside to a van without notifying the neighbours, when you can steal a passport and laptop which you can put in a carrier bag and get on the bus with?

    The largest thing I had stolen was a brand new washing machine that was plumbed in.
