I find it much more effective to take stress out on things that scream and beg for mercy as their eyes bulge and bodies wriggle helplessly as they try to escape the burning.

they have this at NC State (and other colleges I imagine), every year to raise money for somethin. Pay a buck, beat on a car for a coupla minutes. Obviously, once the windows, taillights, and chrome bumpers are gone, it ain't worth it

Agreed Pushmi, it's a fundraiser event at probably every college here in America.

The first person to make some sort of "jelly doughnut" comment will be burned at the stake.

Now, with that out of the way, just have to say what a cool idea. :) Almost as good as the places in Japan where you can pay to enter a room full of glass things and smash smash smash to your heart's content.

am I the only one still scared of the Germans?
2001-11-21 11:49:02 AM  
I thought beer was a stress reliever. The Germans should have no stress whatsoever, what with all the beer they consume.

You'd figure killing six million jews would nip that stress thing in the bud.
2001-11-21 12:05:45 PM  
Yeah, um, so after months of adapting to this, what do they do when they get angry and there aren't any cars around? Liquefy the nearest tourist?

Germans are really stressed huh? Look at this to see what a bunch of whiny biatches they are:

"Statistics show that the US is currently enjoying the strongest economy in the world. Yet, it is also the most overworked, averaging the highest number of working hours each year (1,847) than workers in other all industrialized countries except Japan (2,139). In Britain, the average number of working hours per year is 1,635; in Italy, 1,622; in France, 1,619; in Sweden, 1,569, and in Germany, 1,419. American workers, once the highest paid in the world, now rank substantially below those in nearly all industrialized countries. They also have the least number of paid holidays and vacation days for an average total of 23 days. Workers in Japan have 25 days off; Britain, 31; France, 35; Sweden, 38; Italy, 40.5, and Germany, 42."

I just got back from the "Bush kills frogs" thread
so I first read "cars" as "cats".

i want one of these in my town. someone, start these things in america... please? i would pay more than 2 dollars to beat the crap out of a car with a sledgehammer for an hour. well, really, i only want to do it for five minutes or so, but still...
2001-11-21 01:33:49 PM  
Well that's a pile of crap.
The reason I'm working in America instead of England is that it's less hours, 3 times the money and I actually get a usuable amount of vacation time.
I'd also like to dispute the US having the strongest economy right now. The only reason the economy might be strong is from all those scamming little shiats making money by selling flags, t-shirts, bumper stickers, coins, posters, arse stickers, etc about 11th September.
It's amazing how fast they were produced.
2001-11-21 01:38:57 PM  
Maybe they should just beat the crap out of each other - sledgehammers optional.

"Sledgehammer, why I tell you, back in my days all we had was a dragon punch and roundhouse kicks."

The UAW did this a few times to foreign cars back in the eighties. It didn't do much good, other than letting off a little steam. GM has moved or eliminated some 50,000 jobs out of my area in the last twenty years.

"In heaven all the mechanics are German and all the lovers are French.In hell,all the mechanics are French and all the lovers are German."
Forget where I heard it,but it is a funny statement.
