What is the appeal of these daunting, fearsome-looking contraptions designed specifically for one purpose, to scare the crap out of us? Psychiatrists no doubt have their theories, but perhaps the allure is simply placing oneself in harm's way -- be it real or imagined -- knowing, deep down, that everything is going to turn out all right.
