Have I flunked some sort of behavioral Turing Test?

Know what I do when presented with bubble wrap?

I carefully cut through it, roll it up, and store it away for my own future packing use.

I bring up the subject because the assumption that it is a truth universally acknowledged that all humanoid life wants to pop bubble wrap was the pivot of a recent Doctor Who episode. Heck, if WALL-E is to be believed, robots enjoy popping bubble wrap...and yet, despite having a thousand and three other weird stimmy mannerisms, it's never held any appeal for me--in fact, my visceral reaction is "Stop that--you're wasting it!"

Is something the hell wrong with me?
