There is a great BBC piece on a new joint in China:
"The Rising Sun Anger Release Bar in Nanjing lets customers smash glasses, rant and even hit specially trained workers, state media reported.
The owner, Wu Gong, told China Daily that he was inspired to open the bar by his experiences as a migrant worker."
The two obvious things that come to mind are 1. Damn, Western Civ is really falling behind and 2. What about Bus Uncle?
Bus Uncle shot to world wide fame when a video of his verbal abuse on a bus hit the Internets three months ago (here is the bilingual YouTube version LINK). And while we here in the West are still working out the kinks as to how to turn internet fame into real currency (link), the anger bar suggests there are perfectly legal ways for man famous for verbal abuse to cash in on his street cred. Well, it turns out that Bus Uncle was hired by a resturaunt to do the meet and greet back in June! But, the good times didn't last because one night 3 angrier men in masks showed up and proceeded to beat the crap out of poor Bus Uncle (link)
