    Let me see, I'm much better these days than in the past, I burnt a $100 note once, and my keyboard is wavy from a previous outburst, (still works though), I've had to use all my willpower to save the camera a few times, my gf once threw something at a huge mirror on the wall, completely covering the loungeroom with minute shards of glass.

    I'm sure I'll remember a few more as the thread wears on.

    A glass Snapple bottle.

    Seriously. When I feel destructive, I rarely take it out on inanimate objects. :p

    Nothing, although a friend's partner is especially prone to this sort of behaviour. Last thing he destroyed was a UK£350 acoustic guitar in a hissy-fit of epic proportions... Don't get it myself.

    I don't really destroy when I'm angry.

    I can't really think of the last time I was really angry-- I'm a pretty chill person.

    I think I threw some ice at a brick wall. It shatters real fun.

    I ruined an antique book of children's poems that were very valuable when I was 7-- don't remember why.

    Last night, I got so mad at my printer that I opened the lid of it up, and the stupid ink cartridges got in my way of pulling the paper out, and I forcefully pushed them to the side. I also almost broke my return key last night, too.

    I don't think I've ever destroyed something out of anger. Stupidity, maybe, but not anger. ;)

    From what I can remember off hand a couple CDs were thrown against the wall, a couple CD ROM drives, my old Mobile Phone, and part of an LCD casing that I got frustrated with when performing my mod.

    i destroyed a PS1 when i was a kid... i was really pissed that it took forever to load a game.

    after checking my grades online, i damaged my black MB's trackpad by closing the lid too hard.

    i injured myself when i was really young by banging my head against the wall. i forgot what it was about but i kept throwing up afterwards, so mum dragged me to the doc.

    Uhhh... Age 3: Wooden Cross with Jesus painted on it - about 8 inches... broken in 2 compact pieces "What do you mean I have to go to the doctor?"
    My grandmother jumped to conclusions: "he's the Antichrist!!!1!1!!ONE!!ELEVEN"
    I'm pretty sure I had no idea what God was at that time, anyway.

    OK, last 2 years: an old mouse...
    the electronic kind, don't call PETA :)

    a keyboard, my old Nokia cellphone, which is still operational after meeting my wall about 2 times :eek:

    Lol, same here. At the most, maybe striped a screw or a nut out of frustration for it not breaking loose! :p

    Yes, we N64 users had a good laugh at that, with our fast-game-loading cartridges. :D

    I never really destroy anything when I'm angry but when I was a child I destroyed lots of things for fun. Usually by putting fireworks inside toys or shooting them with air guns. Too bad, some of those toys I blew up are now quite expensive, wish I still had them.

    Nuttin', nada, zilch. I was born without the furious anger gene. Until they figure out a way to treat me, I'll have to go on this way. :eek:

    I've destroyed...

    1. A remote control (literally snapped it in half)
    2. A pair of chopsticks
    3. A piece of my tooth (which happened while I was breaking the above)
    4. A crappy PC's CD drive (pulled it out of the machine until the whole unit broke apart in my hands)
    5. Numerous pens (banging them on a desk, usually)

    I've smashed the LCD closed on my Dell Inspiron many times in the past 9 months I've had it. Worst purchase ever. I'm surprised the screen still works.

    A PC keyboard. Something wasn't working right so I slammed my hand down as hard as I could -- the little feet came flying off. :D

    oh god. :eek: LOTS :eek:

    (I think I have issues expressing myself constructively)


    Phones (a few have hit the walls)

    Doors (effing forget it, those things are meant for slamming)

    Keyboards (pummel the messenger, isn't that the saying?)

    TVs (hitting helps, sometimes. although the TV survived)

    Dishes (hey, maybe I just don't like housework)

    Glasses (refer to the above)

    Shoes (sometimes whatever is closest becomes airborne) - although I think the wall suffered more than the shoe did.

    Torn up "I'm sorry" cards and thrown flowers from useless and cruel men who didn't really mean it.

    Clothes (sometimes there's just "nothing to wear")


    <checks self into anger management courses>

    edit: although I'm in a much better place now. <twitches> honest! :eek: :D

    edit 2: does get me thinking though. I sound so angry - in all seriousness I am incapable of staying angry, my attention span just can't handle it. I get really mad for like a minute and it's over. I could make up some excuse like it's because I'm an only child or something but really, I think I'm just a brat with ADD. It works out in the finish, but not so much for my possessions. Casualties of brief war.
