This is a question for those of you that may know a little about a lot of topics. A couple weeks ago I threw out a older 27" TV from a spare bedroom in my home. As I was carrying it down the steps parts of the plastic case of it started to break off. When I got it to the garage and set it down I noticed the plastic around the tube was so brittle I could break pieces off by barely touching it. I figured no big deal I am throwing the stupid thing out anyway. Fast forward to today as I was getting ready for work. I went to grab the shower brush (you know the type with the long plastic handle that hangs in the shower) and it virtually disintegrated in my hands. This thing is pretty new and made of some hard ass plastic. What the fuck is in my house that is causing random plastics to become extremely brittle to the touch? Do I have some toxic mold in my fancy desert home attacking me?
