    Boredom, lack of imagination, conducting a survey and collecting as many responses as they can, immaturity, OCD, anxiety or superstitions, dementia, etc.

    it's a form of ocd, i have it and tend to have compulsions to ask similar questions.

    That is a question I never asked myself until I discovered this site!  Sometimes I like to imagine that it's part of some sort of long term conceptual performance art installation streaming in real time is some tiny gallery.   I wonder if what started as a joke slowly slid into compulsion?
