You’re here, reading these lines, because you have searched on Google or clicked a link that will show you pics of wrecked, destroyed, disassembled, dismantled Audi TTs… RIGHT?
I hope this will satisfy your morbid fascination with car crashes and accidents. Enjoy the carnage 🙂
p.s. stuff to read below…
You might wonder whay we are attracted to peek at cars in accidents.
According to Aristotle in his Poetics we even “enjoy contemplating the most precise images of things whose sight is painful to us”. (This aspect of our nature, often referred to as the “Car Crash Syndrome” or “Trainwreck Syndrome”, accounts for the supposed attraction such accidents have for passers-by.)
Car Crash Syndrome is basically morbid curiosity, when people slow down to see car crashes, sub-consciously they want to see something gruesome. Only the real sicko’s would admit to wanting to see some gore, but it is Humans nature to be curious of this morbid sense of entertainment. Throughout Human history there has been many times when Human suffering has been used as entertainment, most notably the Gladiators of Rome. Now, we look-out for fights in major league sports like hockey (with lots of blood please…) or crashes in car racing. (with a huge fire please…)
We, humans, did not change at all. Proof? You just proved the theory since you’re here, reading these lines… Not sure? Then don’t click this car crash video link, what on there is disgusting.
My thoughts! Ciao guys
