When gadgets malfunction, only one thing can happen. It’s the rise of the humans. Be afraid. Be very afraid.
Crimes Against Technology
Have you ever wanted to throw your computer out the window because the Internet is running too slow or the machine keeps crashing? Well, if you haven’t followed through on that desire (yet), consider yourself disciplined. We scoured the Web and found tons of stories of people smashing, hurling and shooting their gadgets for one reason or another. This may sound extreme, but according to one survey from last year, 73% of people admitted to hurling a gadget in a fit of rage. Similarly, 10% confessed they turn to alcohol when their technology starts to malfunction. Here are some of our favorite examples of people mistreating their gadgets. We certainly don’t recommend that you imitate any of these, but perhaps putting all of these examples in one place will help our species admit that we have a serious anger management problem when it comes to machines.
