Nobody today believes in retribution for their sins.
Personal Hell Extinguisher is a monument to this, of homo ludens`s ability to play with everything. There is nothing he can`t make fun of. This is charming and yet repulsing. For this reason everything old carries such strong enchantment. There was sacrality even though a product of hypocrisy. In modern times there is no mystery in anything, which diminishes all charms of life.
The Personal Hell Extinguisher is a monument to human need to be prepared for anything. But by "personal" I mean to imply that no one is innocent.
