When I was around four years old I was collecting the license plate numbers of taxis in Copenhagen. I had a little notebook in my pocket in which I meticulously would write down the numbers, many on each page, dozens of pages.

Later on I collected yoghurt containers. Not different kinds, but all the same kind, white with no markings. I think I had hundreds.

People do many strange things. Check out the Magnificent Obsessions site, and you'll see that the world is full of people obsessively doing baffling things.
