I started popping them as a child, as the sound reminded me of popcorn popping. I find it a good stress reliever as well. I think it is a cool idea for those of us who pop bubblewrap, as a form of stress relief. It isn't any different than say somebody using the chinese balls in their hands for stress relief, or any other external adaption to aid people with stress,(i.e. a sponge ball that people squeeze)
The only problem with the virtual version is it intensifies the stress rather than reduce it.
