if youve already been to my about page you know im audhd. this means i frequently acquire new interests. the length and intensity of the interest varies between genres of topic—my wikipedia binges are usually a few hours over a few days, while my media hyperfixations can last months. there are a few topics that qualify as special interests due to the exceptional length and intensity of them.

on most topics on this page i am more knowledgable than 99% of the public and less knowledgable than 99% of experts. i cant have a conversation with a normal person on the topic because i assume they know more than they do. i cant have a conversation with an expert because they have to explain everything to me. this is known as the Blake's Razor

Other Random Interests

stuff ive gotten into for like a week or a day or something and still find kinda neat to learn and think about
