China! It is doing things better than we are. Such as creating a store where women can vent their frustrations by breaking shit.

The Shenyang-based store, located in a shopping mall, doesn't allow in men. (Sexists!). According to People China,

The store is divided into several zones such as a living room and a bedroom. Wang Jingyu, the business manager of the shopping mall said they would like to open a kitchen-like zone later, and they have done this so "women can come here to feel like they are in their own homes but without any limitations, and they can break anything here."

The store's customers are dominated by educated and well-off women, and you get to break things for free if you spend a certain amount in the mall. It's like a new way to induce consumer obsolescence! And makes me think about what I'd want to put in my mythical frustration store. In no particular order:

1) The small child who kicked me throughout last night, seated beside me on my flight to Israel while I was trying to sleep. Kidding! I love children and would never hurt them. (His mother, on the other hand...)

Actually, that's all I can think of right now. Which is probably that kid's fault. You?
