Courtesy of the mighty Kenzo, we present for your workday distraction, short video clips of everything from cardboard to aluminum cans to refrigerators to washing machines to mattresses and computers being run through an industrial shredder.
A brief aside: When I was a little kid, I used to go into the trash, collect bottles, and smash them in the street on my way home from school. Then when I was 11, I set out on a mission to destroy every last toy I had with the aid of a hammer from my father's toolbox. About a year later, I blew up that same toolbox in the woods behind my house with the aid of recently acquired fireworks. At 14, I started a fire. Then when I was 17, I briefly flirted with the popular local sport of using my car (a 1981 Volkswagen Rabbit) to propel shopping carts into brick walls at 45 miles an hour in the middle of the night.
Meaning: The appreciation for ritualized destruction never dies, apparently.
