The Anger Release Machine








I'm sure you'll agree that, whenever one's in a bit of a snit, there's nothing quite so satisfying as hurling a piece of fine china against the nearest wall. However, if the china one smashes belongs to someone other than oneself (grandmother, uncle, exceptionally prissy cousin), the satisfaction will not last very long.

Fortunately, artist Yarisa Kublitz has found a solution to this dilemma. She's created the world's first "Passive Aggressive Vending Machine." All you do is insert a few coins, and you receive a piece of quality china, which you're free to smash into smithereens. (If I ever find this machine, I'm choosing the cat.)

I tip my hat to Yarisa Kublitz: a true humanitarian/master of destruction, and I highly recommend a visit to the artist's website for some first-class smashing and crashing!

One would think that the figurines would break on the way to the bottom of the machine.

>.< sweet! i could really use that. I would choose the blue vase. how much do you pay, though? if it's like, 1 dollar, thats rad (how much would one dolla be in other countries? china? australia? russia?) but if its like 5 dolla, thats too much. if in wanted ti smash a vase, i would want to do it cheapley.

Fantastic! Awesome solution for aggression... I know a couple of people who could use that. xD Myself included.

Ditto Patsee's thought.

OK, I read the website and here's what happens:
You don't actually get the piece of china, which you could then smash (too dangerous), you simply pay, and then watch it fall to the bottom and smash...

Hope that clarifies, Patsee. :)

Awesome!
I've seen that there's a bag available, which kind of looks like a baby carry bag, in which you scream into if you are angry.

Oooooh. SO you don't smash, the machine smashes it for you. I'll hurl a shoe to release my 'demons' then. Muwahaha.

Patsee and Raph, I bet the artist padded the bottom of the machine ... I have a few wedding gifts (a la happy cat), I'd happily donate to the project :P

If I bought that thing because I was angry, I wouldn't be able to smash it. I mean, you pay money for it and it's just hard to throw your money against the wall.
