In times of trial, when things aren't quite going your way and you need to let off a little agressive steam in a socially-approved manner and you don't have access/permission/an alibi to use Things That Go Boom, ripping the bejesus out of some really ugly interior paneling (the better to remove antique wiring and introduce that newfangled notion, insulation) is a satisfactory substitute. Added benefits include being inside where it is dry and you don't need a license or a good excuse to own a crowbar. That's Blue Max up there. I ripped off all the old siding on my house with that -- two layers. With a good crowbar much is possible.
