Destroying expensive things (voluntarily or otherwise)

post #1 of 76
Thread Starter 
This forum could use a thread dedicated to the immature and meaningless destruction of items. Photos are a huge plus. I have wrecked: - two cars. - one cell phone (like Pink Floyd and Dale Earnhardt, its last hit was the wall). - one computer. - one office chair (see: cell phone).

My hobbies relieve great amounts of stress, and I am also careful, so I'm gonna be a spectator on this one. I think I once threw a pencil.

Not me personally, but a radio DJ in town just crashed his new corvette:

My grandfather once told me about an obsenely rich guy who would buy classic cars just so he could wreck them. He'd go out driving and crash them into stone walls and trees.

Sounds almost like a perverse sexual fascination.

Once, my brother threw a TV out of a third(?) story window. It was already broken though, so I'm not sure if that counts.

there was a dump at my old school and on eco day (this has to be the dumbest idea ever, I don't know who thought of it), a group of us and some teacher would go down to the junkyard and our eco friendly task was to build birdhouses out of the junk down there. Being middle school boys, we used to find all the old copiers and printers, find a large metal stick or broken baseball bat, or anything else large, heavy, and blunt, and smash it to bits. Not so great for the environment, but it was fun as hell.

Last time I tried playing challenging video games, I whipped a full glass of scotch at the wall (good scotch). I don't play video games anymore.

I think I'd get a perverse thrill from wrecking a Deusenberg. They are loud, unsubtle things.

like recreating the James Dean/Lil Bastard wreck, to gain sexual pleasure.

Car crashes, they liberate sexual energy. -Elias Coteas in Crash

if i read it correctly, he was accusing you of being "loud and unsubtle" but as to what prompted it, that's a very good question

Was it you that mentioned people that got aroused by watching car accidents?

Ever seen the movie Crash? The Canadian one?
