I wonder about rubberneckers
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.
