Summary (IBList user synopsis):

Unrighteous anger and rage can infect those around us with similar thoughts, turning a normally peaceful household into a discordant whirlwind of vengeance, make kind people hate their dearest loved once, and cause the most reasonable to become unreasoning madmen and women.

But what if this infection could spread not just to other individuals, but to inanimate objects. What if anger did not simply go away, but collected in the things around us as a deadly poison?
