I need to speak with you, UG.

Why do people feel the need to punch a wall when they get angry/frustrated? I mean, IMO, that's the stupidest thing I've ever heard.

Today one of my friends had a bandage on his hand and I ask "what happened to you hand?"

He goes "I punched the wall."

I just looked at him. I wanted to tell him that was the stupidest thing I had ever heard, then ask what the hell is wrong with him.

Why would you do that? I mean, why? It sounds stupid to tell people about, plus you're hurting yourself.

Is it just my school, or are kids doing this everywhere? Do you guys have any friends who've done it? What's the god damn point?!?!

To take out frustration....

To concentrate your pain as a physical one to keep control of your emotions...

I don't get it either. I haven't been at all violent since I was like ten. Granted, I'm a bit of a pansy, but I think that's better than being a thug.

I do it sometimes, it depends what I'm closest to. When you have so much anger than swearing just doesn't vent it, punching the wall / bed / a cushion is a good vent (preferably the latter two).

I punched a hole in a bathroom door and it's scarred my hand.

I also punched a little girl in the throat and it kind of ruined my reputation as a reliable babysitter.

release anger, if someone does something like stubs a toe or hits there head i usually put up a hand to punch so they dont hurt themselves trying to hurt the earth

in all honesty, you're the weird one for not punching walls, i've gone through a wall before....you gotta vent your frustration somehow, just don't punch glass, it's hurts more when it breaks than a wall does

actually I used to think the same thing and then one night at work, it had been an especially ****ty night and I hadnt had more than like 10 hours of sleep in the last 4 or 5 days. Well anyways it was abou t3 in the morning and a clamp on the machine comes down on my hand(there is about a 200lbs of pressure coming down on this clamp which is about as wide as the bottom of a crutch).I got so ****ing pissed that I just start wailing on the control panel on the machine. I broke my little knuckle and cut my hand really bad. I dont know why I did it... I had never done it before but I just felt uncontrollable anger. If it had been a person Im pretty sure I would have nearly killed them.

I keep picturing how stupid these people must look during the act of punching the wall.......



"DAMMIT I'M MAD!! FUCK YOU WALL!!!"

".....holy ****, that hurt.....well, at least I can brag about it tomorrow."



EDIT: I vent my frustration through my guitar

or either bottle it up for later use.

I do it when it gets REALLY bad.. like, I've only ever done it twice so..

Once a brick wall, I was so pissed off I freaked the **** out and nearly had a fit apparently, I don't really remember it.
Second time was in my room, fist went through the wall.

Scarred from both.

It's literally just when it gets to the point where I think; 'it's either your face or the wall'. And I'd rather not punch someone in the face.

Some people do it to release anger they're scared might be let out on other people, especially ones they care about, on themselves. I'd much rather hurt myself than hurt someone I care about tbh

still, there are much more mature ways of letting out anger than wailing on a wall....

Maybe the wall told a racist joke.

Whenever I'm angry, I punch puppies. Those don't hurt your hand.
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

Yeah, ironically it's the jocky guys who diss emos for cutting themselves, while this is pretty much just the same thing

You've never been so frustrated you want to kick someones head in?

Theres a large dent in my wall from me smacking it in with a baseball bat, kicking with steel toe capped boots and just generally beating the **** out of it.

When I get angry enough to punchy someone, sometimes the guy gets lucky and I manage to unleash my frustration on an inanimate object instead of his face.

Punching a wall for me happens when I am about to punch someone in the face but manage to control myself just in time to not get myself into big big trouble.

That being said, I tend to avoid stone walls.

Allot of people do this...when a person is very frustrated they usualy feel like hurting someone, but since most people don't want to hurt anybody they usualy take their anger out on the nearest thing, which more often than not, is a wall. It has nothing to do with stupidity, it has to do with impulse control, which is usualy impaired when a person is experiencing high stress levels.
#34
i do if im mad enough. its not like my thought process is **** you **** mother****ing son of a ***** piece of **** **** wall! **** YOU! its not like a concious thing, if im frustrated enough the nearest thing within an arms length is gonna get punched. not that it solves anything, and it kills later, but its not like im gonna sit there ready to explode and debate the pros and cons of punching my wall

They are hoping the molecules in their hand and the wall align, so that their hand will get stuck in the wall.

I sometimes punch walls.

Well, not walls, usually doors, walls are too hard.

But yeah, only when I'm very angry.

You won't like me when I'm very angry.
