Things Fitting Perfectly Into Other Things: Strangely Calming, Kind of Dirty


The Internet is a wonderful thing. No matter what weird or incredibly specific stuff you’re into (hey, I’m not judging), there’s a place on the Internet that’s full of that stuff — and likely supports a dedicated community of folks who are just as into that stuff as you are.

For example, if you gain a deep sense of satisfaction from seeing two objects that weren’t designed to be a pair fit together perfectly, there’s a whole Tumblr dedicated to pictures and GIFs of just that. It’s called Things Fitting Perfectly Into Other Things and it will make you feel a lot of feelings. You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll feel simultaneously at one with the universe and a little bit dirty.

Or, at the very least, you’ll feel mildly amused.

Having never felt any inclination toward things fitting perfectly into other things before, as I scroll through this Tumblr, I feel like a voyeur — like I’ve stumbled across some weird porn that I shouldn’t be seeing, yet I can’t look away. It feels so wrong… and yet so right.

Please look at these pictures and tell me you feel the same way:

Stool + bucket

It’s… so beautiful.

Poker chips + toothpick container

Soul mates, together at last.

Bouncy ball + speaker

What a perfect union.

Snapple bottle + Pringles tube

OH GOD, YES.
