One theory I heard is that it is analogous to spot-squeezing!
Or picking at dead skin... (go on, be disgusted!)I definitely think the psychology is similar, but I'm not quite sure what's behind it.I reckon the "one way" nature of it (you can pop a bubble, but you can't reverse or undo the popping) is a significant element of the compulsion. Any other ideas?I have seen web-based bubble-popping simulations/pasttimes... but that's just pointless compared to the real thing We have big rolls of pink bubble-wrap at work. It's special anti-static bubble-wrap (at least I hope it is and it's not just that the Chinese have found that they can charge 3x the price if they make it pink!!!)
