It took the great Thomas Edison years of painstaking labor to create the cylinder recorder, the precursor to recorded sound as we know it. It takes mere seconds to turn an original Edison artifact into a pile of shellac shards. Heartbreaking for this crushed collector, hilarious for us. Thanks to Soup honey Bambi for this.
