Recreation by Destruction

There’s a link to this article over on Marginal Revolution about the reptilian glee of destruction, fire, explosions, and so on. I’ve often thought about trying to start a recreation center full of old junk and tools of destruction near Tulane. One would suspect there’s a market for it with all of the deadlines, homework, pressure from parents, grading, etc that take place in a university setting. I heard somewhere that places like this exist in Japan, but I don’t have any confirmation of that. Do you?
