scottydoesntknow: See! First it's gay marriage, and now people are wanting to marry inflatable toys! Slippery slope indeed....
Bastard Toadflax: I'm racking my brain trying to remember the name of a British musician who plays the piano and writes extremely clever songs, including one about his affair with an inflatable woman. Anyone know who I'm talking about? He has bright orange hair... No, not carrot top.
Fark Rye For Many Whores: Elegy: Fark Rye For Many Whores: Elegy: Meh, he needs to learn from the master (SFW)funnyjunk doesn't like usWhoops. I just picked the first link off my GIS that had a high resolution pic of that particular thread. Should have looked closer, sorry for linking to blatant content thieves.

L.D. Ablo: I wondered when Looners (Wiki, SFW) would turn up here.
omeganuepsilon: I was going to ask what his fark handle was, but I saw someone mention Kwame.So instead, I'll talk about the article.Seems to me I can understand a bit of this and even tie it into pack-rats.We all find things that we like. Be it a ring, a desk toy, a favored bowl or super neat contraption.We find an object and we marvel at it, it's construction, shape, size, etc.In these other people that affectation just goes completely wonky in one way or another. They marvel at every little thing like children in a toy aisle, or they have more selective tastes and obsess over a certain genre of things.It can be seen in primates, even in other mammals such as dogs, even birds. They find a thing and take it as their own, sometimes it turns into an obsession. A shiny thing, a chewy thing, a tool or weapon.It's not an emotional attachment in a healthy person, it's desire of ownership, a need to want to make it yours, to keep it from others.Our entire culture is built around the very human desire to possess things. Even supposedly healthy people will freak out if their possessions are perceived to be in danger. Run back into the burning house to grab, or otherwise go through laborious effort to preserve, a photo album? Computer?Start sweating when a favored pair of rare shoes get a tiny bit dirty?I saw a dude start to cry when someone spilled food on the floor in the backseat of his car. (100% water soluble syrup)Know someone who "collects" pens? Stamps? DVD's?These things are not new, but when we see someone with a rarer obsession than our own we all freak out as if he's some sort of antichrist to be reviled or ridiculed.I find this humorous./we are all crazy cakes//absolute wack-a-doo
