People pay $20 to enter Rage Room and destroy things with a bat

In 2013 the Break Club opened in Buenos Aires, Argentina, "where members (predominately women) go to break shit with a stick, shatter bottles against the wall, kick stuff, and all around have the best fifteen minutes of their day."

And now Toronto is getting in on the action with a Rage Room, where a basic package includes "30 minutes alone with a weapon of my choosing and five ceramic dinner plates (acquired from yard sales and thrift stores, lest one worry unduly about waste)."

The Break Club and the Rage Room are good examples of life imitating art. The "Destruct Room" in Jack Kirby's wonderfully weird comic book OMAC (1974) was a place where stressed-out people could act on urges to smash things.
