Ever get so exasperated with a malfunctioning computer that you literally want to hurl it across the room? Thirty-seven-year-old Colorado Springs, Colo., resident Lucas Hinch did one better.

When his Dell XPS 410 desktop, which had been plaguing him for months, lapsed into a blue screen of death last Monday evening, Hinch took the machine out to an alley near his home and shot it eight times with a handgun.

"It was glorious," Hinch told The Los Angeles Times. "Angels sung on high."
