Written by:
Spaniards bust stress with hammers

LUBIA, Spain (Reuters) - Frazzled Spaniards are paying 40 euros (28 pounds) to vent their frustrations with modern life by taking sledgehammers to old cars, computers, television sets and mobile phones while listening to heavy metal rock.

For this fee, punters gain access to a scrap yard in Lubia, a village 160 kms (100 miles) northeast of Madrid, where they can smash technology to their heart's content, relieving pent-up stresses over traffic jams, work or computer glitches.

"When the participants arrive, they feel afraid and uncertain but after they have smashed everything you can see them free of worry and more relaxed," said Jorge Arribas, co-founder of StopStress, the group whose idea it is.

"Some people even bring photos of their bosses and put them on top of the cars before they start hitting them with their hammers," he said.

Participants in the "damage therapy" sessions are supplied with sledgehammers, helmets, overalls and goggles and then launch into an enthusiastic and destructive workout.

One satisfied customer, Mariano Garcia, smashed up an old car and then enthused: "It is brilliant, fantastic. After doing it I feel peaceful and relaxed, I have got rid of all my stress."

"I started smashing the boot, then the windows, then the bonnet. I have smashed all the parts of the car that always bother me. I have taken my revenge," he said.

Customers can spend up to two hours attacking the appliances with sledgehammers but organisers say nobody has succeeded in sustaining their ire for more than 30 minutes so far.
