'Taboo': Man Loves, Kisses, Rescues, And Sleeps With Balloons (VIDEO)

Furries may have gone mainstream -- or at least a lot of people know what that term means -- but how about "looners"? On "Taboo" (Sun., 10 p.m. ET on National Geographic), viewers were introduced to Dave Collins, who quite simply loves balloons. He loves them so much he "rescues" them from car dealerships, which basically means he steals them.

In doing so, though, he is saving their lives. Dave is a "non-popper," which means he thinks that popping a balloon is the same thing as killing that balloon. So instead, he leaves them inflated and fills his room with them.

He also whispers sweet nothings to them and even kisses and hugs them, as well as sleeping surrounded by them and with them stuffed under his shirt. But his relationship with them is non-sexual. Instead, he thinks of them as family.

See more things that are considered "Taboo," or just downright strange, every Sunday at 10 p.m. ET on National Geographic.
