Some other explanations would be that you don't hang out at bowling alleys a lot, have social anxiety or just dislike creepy-ass abandoned buildings. That said, the concept of liminal spaces are interesting. Tumblr can be a rabbit hole, full of fun history and imaginative threads on aliens being fought off by bears.
