Default Why are people sooo obsessed?

Apparantly the lead singer of Korn, Johnathan Davis own the VW Beetle driven and used by Ted Bundy. Who owns stuff like that? Another amazing fact is that people actually buy paintings done by John Wayne Gacy. My question is why? Who goes to an auction and says: "I have GOT to have Jeffrey Dahmer's refrigerator!" I just don't get it. anyone else have an opinion?

pure and simple morbid curiosity. Those kind of people want stuff that was owned/touched by a murderer.



Kind of like how we would want something that was owned/touched by a castmember.

Default Such harsh words...

however same words very true.

For some there IS a fascination, however, I do not see it. To answer the original post, IMO there are much better things to be obsessed with.

I'm Obsessed With Seth Meyers...Possibly too obsessed...But Frankly I Wouldn't Really Want Anything Of His...Except maybe a picture of him...But That's It basically...Gum?...I Don't have enough money as it is....Boxers?...What's The Point?....But The Main Point is that Most of these people that would Buy Someone's Chewed gum or Boxers...They Turn out to be stalkers...and Then They Get a Job With the Paparzzi.... ....As For the property of Killers....Probably The Fact that They Actually Killed Masses of People Is Soo Fascinating...I'll Be honest I like to know How they Killed people and Stuff, I kinda like to see pictures of the victims too but it fascinates me that Someone Would ACTUALLY have the urge to do that to people....and I'm Probably not scared of seeing those probably because Nothing like that has happened around me...well not in really in my lifetime that has threatened me...But I'm Just Amazed how People have the Audacity to do things like that....as for owning the property of them...it could be because they are inspired or they like to know that they own a piece of history...

I agree,Mxz.I love Ron and Clay Aiken(you can laugh) but all I'd want was a pic not their boxers or chewed gum.Besides, it's probley just a loser who thinks we're dumb enough to buy gum he chewed or his boxers.

I can see buying an impotant article of clothing or prop used in a movie or TV show, but to just but their boxers b/c they wore them, come on, if someone takes my panties and keeps them, it's considered stalking, isn't it?

Oh! This is what celebrities do to us...I guess maybe because people today are so completely obsessed over actually touching something famous, maybe b/c they will never have it themselves, or maybe they like to brag? Ohoho, I'd love to have anything of Alice Coopers But, what's really the point of spending so much money on a decoration item, or conversation piece that you can just sit there and dream about?
