I wish I knew too. I guess it's just one of those internet 'crazes' the sane people will just have to wait it out.

I do think it started about a year and a half ago or two maybe. I assume it is some juvenile weirdness. I ignore it but it certainly has continued way past the general lifetime or weird repeated questions on EP.
It started about 5 yrs ago on Yahoo and traveled to other sites. It's based of a some kind of newspaper article that was on the web. Since it's came to EP, EP hasn't been to keep it out completely.
I used to be on Yahoo Answers, and I did not see it there. I haave only seen it here recently.
It is likely a form of wish-fulfillment fantasy on the part of a nerd who likes to imagine that he could be strong enough to strangle someone his age. There is no basis in reality for such absurd tales, of course. Nerds are weaklings.
He or she has a fetish, they need to deal with.
