I like to juggle. I'm not particularly good at it, but it soothes my nerves and I can use it to focus my concentration if it starts wandering.
What's quite interesting that whenever someone sees me juggle with three balls, they invariably ask whether I can juggle four balls. If I juggle with two balls, they ask about three. If I happen to be juggling four, they ask about five. It never fails. I'm pretty sure that if I were to juggle something insane like twelve balls, I would be asked about thirteen.
I've come to the conclusion that it must be because people like to see others fail. It does not matter how much you can do, but it's what you can't do that interests people.
There's something utterly fascinating about that.
