A recent New York Times article on VHS nostalgia repeats the canard that DVDs are virtually indestructible compared to VHS.

I call shenanigans on that one. DVDs can be rendered unplayable within seconds of being handled by a six year old being very, very careful. I've got VHSes that are 20 years old and still work, despite having been handled by many children, or even being rental tapes at some point in their existence.
