I wonder about rubberneckers

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

What is gaper's delay, really?  Why do people stop to stare?  What is it that everyone is hoping to see?

Is it a compulsion?  Is it a mass attack of schadenfreude?  Is it simply the adult version of a child poking a dead animal with a stick?

What sort of creatures are we, that so many of us have this reaction that we have terminology to describe it?

Honestly?  I don't know that I even *want* enlightenment.
