I don't know. I guess it would depend on how well it was secured.

Yes, but it would mist likely have to be put in by a technician or a Construction worker...and it would be better If it was while you are renovating your house....

Of course, professionals can properly anchor it through your roof trusses or I joists.

@Krystal, if you have a basement or multiple story house, I joists are your floor foundation, stood on end roughly 10" tall and various lengths cut accordingly to fit, placed 2' on center in order to lay flooring and fasten drywall to as a ceiling,essentially its your floor.

That sounds like fun. If you secure it tightly, it won't fall. Las Vegas has mirrors on the ceiling, but if there's an earthquake or something, and it falls...your face could get mutilated by glass. That sounds scary.

Architectually if you were to reinforce your ceiling with the right mounting technology that can flow a current of Electricity and Cable to your Television and have it mounted above your head then I believe it is possible; but I would not recommend it on the count of natural disasters that could make it unstable and neck injuries from it's altitude in position ;)

It might be possible to do without it falling on you but there are other reasons not to do that. From ehow:
"Large LCD TVs are designed so their weight is balanced when the set is upright, as it is when mounted to a wall. When a large LCD set is laid flat, there is very little support for the middle part of the screen. It is possible that the screen could become cracked or distorted around the edges if it lays static for a prolonged period of time."
Although there seemed to be some debate about it I have also heard that plasma tv's should not lie flat, especially if its long term.

If you screw it with heavy bolts, it should hold.
