Why are they called hemorrhoids and not asteroids?

I was just reading up on how vector screens functioned today during my lunch break. Of course that lead into refreshing my memory about shadow masks, invar or otherwise, and then aperture grill, and discovered NEC had their own hybrid tech called Cromaclear.

You can't process me with a normal brain.

Asteroids didn't use a normal raster display, but a vector based one instead (the electron beam wasn't just deflected from left to right, and then top to bottom, it was used to draw the polygons on the screen). I wanted to know how they did the different colors.

Turns out the process for displaying different colors was the same as some of the original color TV experiments. And since I was already reading up on color TV, I wanted to make sure I remembered how the various masking techniques worked (I did), and picked up a little more insight along the way.
