Now here’s a case of “rage against the machine…”:

Now to be honest, I think this guy should have gotten a ticket. For something. Anything. Disturbing the peace. Or littering, at the very least. I know many people who have legitimately gotten mad enough to throw their computers out of the window, but they didn’t do it. What if it had hit someone? Not to mention that it’s wasteful, bad for the environment, detrimental to you in the long run, (you did buy it for a reason right?) and well, it just isn’t a good, well thought out idea.
But on the flip side, it would be great if this worked for speeding tickets. “But Officer, haven’t you ever felt the need for speed?…”
