Have you ever gotten a ridiculous sense of excitement and/or satisfaction from watching some mechanical gadget work? Do you know the exquisite feeling of childish glee when exploring some technological wonder?
It’s absurd, really. Why should I be so fascinated with the operation of an automatic letter folder? What is so riveting that I could sit, feeding paper into it, for hours? But there is so much satisfaction in the snatching “ka-chunk” and sudden exit of a magically folded piece of paper! The perfect creases! Ah, it is so beautiful! *sigh*
Why do I feel like a total geek right now?
