China markets in everything fact of the day

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.

The link is here and I thank Vinnie and Trevor Wagener and also John Thorne for the pointer.  Here is further information.

“frustrated men will have to stick with the ol’ pillow standby ..”: are you quite sure that you wanted to tell us this?

>>There should certainly be a market for this in the U.S., given our excess of old consumer goods and collective tendency toward rage. The ladies-only policy would have to go, though.

Don’t they have those events where you can take baseball bats to old cars? I swear we had that once at my high school.

Kick boxing would have been better, equally liberating without being financially lethal. On the other hand, a simulated financial suicide might be the true appeal of the service.
