I don't know how to talk about this without sounding retarded, but I like cups.
Just on it's own, a cup is nothing special, but when you put liquid in it, the cup is fascinating. Especially if it's clear glass, so you can just stare at the liquid, conformed into a shape and nature it does not readily possess.
With a cup, you can just pick up a liquid and walk around with it. That's an awesome technology. A total victory over the natural order of things.
What really bothers me, though, is that while I'm entirely serious and I really do find cups interesting, it's very clear to me that nobody else is going to read this and align with my mental wavelength. Nobody is going to study my last few paragraphs and have some deep epiphany where the camera zooms in and the background zooms out (is there a name for that kind of shot?), and for the first time in their life they find cups super interesting.
