People deal with heartbreak differently. Some hit the gym. Some shovel ice cream into their mouth. Some travel around the world and eventually write a book about their experiences, which later becomes a film starring Julia Roberts.

All of those activities could be seen as rational responses to getting divorced. So what are we to make of this German fellow who took to power tools and elbow grease to literally cut everything he owns in half so he could present his ex-wife with her ‘half’ of the settlement.

If your German is rusty the title of the video, für laura, translate to “For Laura”. The video’s description and text reads: “Thank you for 12 ‘beautiful’ years Laura !!!!! you’ve really earned half , Greetings also to my successor.”

Although we suspect some trickery in this video – the dissected car levitating magically for example – our favourite part of it is the fact that the enraged videographer took the time to put tape over his TV before bisecting it. It’s dedication like that which makes childish revenge really look professional.
