1. While stress is an unfortunate and unhealthy part of modern life, going on a destructive rampage isn’t usually a socially acceptable way of dealing with it. Enter the Anger Room, an inconspicuous storefront in a Dallas strip mall where fed-up Americans can act out.

    Inside, proprietor and founder Donna Alexander and her staff offer up rooms of stuff — TVs, office furniture, glassware — for patrons to smash. 

    "Stuff that you can’t do to other people, you can do here," one customer says. "I can’t afford going to the psychiatrist, but I can afford this."

    Heh. Fair enough. Not that I couldn’t use a little aggression in my day-to-day doings.
