Not to reignite your obsession, but I'm pretty sure this is the book that has the article by Asimov:

Here's a description of the Table of Contents which mentions the article in question:

Thank you! I'll see if I can get it. :)

I've felt the same way about everything Asimov has ever written. I've had to read everything that I could get my hands on (that's more than five hundred books). For a while, it bothered me that I couldn't find an article he wrote about a short Sherlock Holmes story "The Five Orange Pips". In spite of my effort, I couldn't find it anywhere. Now, it doesn't bother me that much. The funny thing is that not everything that Asimov wrote is all that good, some of it is not good at all.
Especially the fiction towards the end that tried to tie it all together.
I've had a similar compulsion about Mozart. EVery once in a while, I have to listen to the two complete works that have been published so far, even though his early works, about one-third of the total is quite forgettable. Each time it takes me quite a while, you don't listen to three hundred and fifty hours of music on a weekend.
There's something (but not everything) to be said for quality emerging from quantity.

Encountered this recently .. In no reality can I comprehend the appeal ..
Do adults that enjoy this sort of thing have mental development issues?

Is that from an episode of Jackass?

Never watched that show. Didn't see the appeal. I agree. Adults who enjoy that sort of thing must have mental development issues.

That clip is from last week’s episode of “All Elite Wrestling.” It’s from a Street Fight match that was held inside the Jacksonville Jaguars’ football complex. (The owner of AEW also owns the Jaguars.) The match was crazy awesome! :)
