Cast Central - It should be no surprise to anyone that there is a contingent of weirdoes that have fetishized casts and braces. There's a contingent of weirdoes fetishizing everything under the sun, and probably the sun itself. This site is another hilarious example of what happens when people with too much free time decide to jerk off to something stupid. My favorite part of Cast Central is this sobering message that puts everything into perspective:
Over the last 12 years this site has gone through many changes, the current one fixes a lot of the behind the scenes problems that have cropped up over the years.
Twelve years ago, in 1995, the Internet was barely anything but a pile of pages dedicated to the consumption of balls. Ball eating and apparently this cast fetish site. Think about what you were doing 12 years ago and how far you've come. Now think about this site and the guy running it. I'm sure you don't want to, and I don't blame you. In the past 12 years you've undoubtedly come a long way, while the dude running this site is still creepy and leering at plaster and hospital discharges.
If you want to delve into this realm of idiocy, your best bet is to try reading some of the cast stories. Instead of anything sexy it's just long detailed descriptions of people getting injured and then having casts made. It's clinical and bizarre and it makes my head hurt. If you're a visual sort, enjoy the searchable database of cast pictures you can access for a mere $10 a month.
Are you concerned that you may be a character trapped in a Tom Waits song? Be smart and learn the warning signs before it's too late. Also, it's too late. It has always been too late.
I'm haunted by a recurring vision of a skeleton flipping me off. To avoid seeing this terrifying image in bumper sticker form, I pay someone with a blank bumper to drive in front of me at all times.
