10. Well it's affection, really

Anything that provides us with enjoyment becomes an object of affection. People who love roller coasters are seldom content to only go to the first one they encountered at the county fair. They travel -- sometimes basing their entire vacations on a coaster destination. They seek the biggest, the fastest and, to be sure, the scariest. They may choose lifelong companions based on that pursuit. It's similar, at least from the standpoint of affection, for gun lovers. Fortunately, roller coasters are too big to fit in a pocket and too cumbersome to launch a flesh-rending projectile. Otherwise, people would be using them to rob liquor stores left and right.
