Why did anyone ever like fidget spinners?

I picked one up from a discount bin at walmart once and tried it. I found it wholly unsatisfying. @Polksaladannie did the same with the same result.

As far as “fidgets” go, I think two metal bottle caps are far superior to a spinner. You can manipulate them in all sorts of ways, there are a variety of textures and edges, and they make a pleasing sound.
