Calculator puts value on emotional anguish

Besides being a conventional calculator, the Consolation Money Calculator also tallies up the net worth, in yen, of any emotional anguish incurred.

Count on the Japanese to tote up something like the Consolation Money Calculator. Despite its rather Toy "R" Us design, toy maker Wiz Inc's 2,415 yen ($30) offering has a sinister mode. Besides being a conventional calculator, it also tallies up the net worth, in yen, of any emotional anguish incurred.

Just enter your profile information and choose the relation of the perpetrator of your anguish from a list that includes boss or boyfriend. Fill in a few more details relating to your earlier selections, and hit the "mental damage" button to calculate the end results.

Too bad this won't be admissible in a court of law since the responses are gag-like, with cute images of "beer" or "dinner" displayed on the screen. We'll sum this up as a fun novelty that's good for a few laughs. But if you're looking to kill your antagonist stress, we'd recommend the Nerf N-Strike Vulcan for a blast.
