Is this the result of a burn-out or a new way to avoid parking tickets?? (???)

I have seen people who sacrificed a (bad) octal tube to house an USB-memory stick. I just wonder how to separate the glass tube from the socket and access the glass tube's innermost delicate area (i.e. nip off the bottom, let the vacuum out and dig out the electrodes and stuff something else inside).
