Face it — nothing’s more satisfying when you’re angry than taking a whack at large, breakable objects. Problem is, smashing your own property to bits carries some pretty disappointing consequences, like having to clean up the mess — or, in extreme cases, having to replace the goods you just destroyed.

Luckily, a new shop in China will let you vent your frustrations on other people’s equipment without dealing so much as a scratch to your own. After paying for the right to abuse an old TV, mobile phone, plate, chair or other item — yes, the Pottery Barn rule still applies — you have up to one minute to unleash your wrath upon your target. As an additional bonus, the store makes motorcycle helmets and gloves available to prevent injuries. But there’s a catch: if you’re not a woman, you can’t play. Looks like frustrated men will have to stick with the ol’ pillow standby for now.
