    What are you interested in that most people aren't

    Hey collegeNET!

    It's Taco Tuesday! Except I didn't eat any tacos... :( Lol my friends actually invited me to go to a Mexican restaurant but I didn't go... Anyway, just for fun, what are you interested in that most people aren't?

    Because I have lived overseas for a lot of my life, I am really into geography. However, there are a lot of people who literally know almost nothing about where places are around the world. I just sigh...I always appreciate someone who is good at geography.

    I also really like history. There are so many fascinating facts and events! Like geography though, it seems most people either hate history or don't know much about it. Like geography, I am always appreciative and impressed by people who know their history as well as or better than me; and I'm no history buff!

    I should add politics to this list...maybe I am just a weird person lol...there are many other things I could add...

    What about you guys?

    Looking forward to hearing from you!

    Hey Java!

    For me, it's definitely textiles, which is also my major. I'm always satisfied when someone actually knows about the fabric of the clothes they're wearing, whether that be the fiber content or the structure.

    I know a lot of people that aren't interested in it at all and find it weird that I care about it so much though.

    Have a good one!

    Hello,

    I would say my interest in making chokers. I don't know many people that make their own jewelry. Most people buy their pieces. I always make mine.

    Thanks

    Oh I love this question...

    I'm really interested in architectural details. And I think the majority of people aren't really interested in this.
    There's so much hidden beauty in joints and joinery. For me (and perhaps people with an architectural design background) how components are connected says a lot about the design of a space. I am fascinated with how architectural connections affect the overall style, ambiance, and feeling of a space. The small details create the larger ones and are just as important.

    Re: What are you interested in that most people aren't

    Ummm....I'd say space because of the degree to which I enjoy and am invested in space (I kinda work in it a bit, have freelanced for a space hotel design and other things) but technically most people are interested even if they're not pursuing it? So scratch that, even though it's my big thing, bah!


    I play the ukulele, which isn't that rare here in Hawai'i but is likely pretty rare where most of you Cnetter's are yeah? That can be a thing!


    I love building things, models, climbing stuff, fire, and watching spiders eat bugs.


    Getting my chameleon to like me? haha! He's a grouchy monster but I always smile at him.

    Hey Hey!

    First, I want to thank you for contributing to my forums with your opinions on politics. I like that you and I have differing points of view and opinions and I look forward to some more discussions. I share your affection for politics which is a difficult thing to find other people who enjoy following as well. I also enjoy stories about true crime, serial killers and pro wrestling. I think wrestlers are some of the hardest working entertainers on earth and its a fantastic world of bizarre and over the top characters that I enjoy escaping too.

    I am fascinated and amazed at the speech mechanism and how everything has to come together in an exact way in order for it to work properly. So I am a motor speech geek, I am a speech language pathologist though, I think my husband gets bored when I start talking about subjects involving motor speech.

    Religion....gardening....not much else
