The Urge To Smash Break and Destroy

NOTE: This is a post I had saved (but never published) and I decided to put it up now since I think it could be the catalyst for an interesting follow up/update since things in my life have changed rather significantly since I wrote this nearly three years ago. I will ruminate on things for a bit and if I believe a follow up is warranted I will write one, post it and link the two articles to one another. 

From time to time, I get the urge to break things. To vandalise. To destroy. I don't follow up on these impulses (although I admit that I did a couple of times when I was a kid/teenager, although nothing serious) but when I have them they are pretty strong.

I'm not sure why I have these inclinations. It may be related to the society in which I live, as it feels restrictive, and these feelings are a response to this? I dunno. Maybe there's some sort of biological reason? Like I am supressing my innate destructive 'manly' urges throughout my 21st century, 'cultured' 'modern' and 'civilized' lifestyle, and my inner caveman makes an attempt to break free every now and again, an attempt that manifests as an ure to tear down the social order, the 'establishment.'

If You Google 'Google' Will You Break The Internet? (PICS)

Ah, the internet. It has given us so much, for so little. The power of the internet is not even possible to fathom. It borders on omnipotency. However, the internet, the Series of tubes that we have all come to not only love, but depend on, probably for the remainder of human history (till death do us part) could potentially have a HUGE, MONSTROUS, MAJOR FLAW that could easily lead to its demise if discovered by the general public, whom, at best is both curious and clumsy, and at worst, insidious and malevolent.

The potential flaw?
