I'm fascinated by buildings in general.
I realised a bit late in life that I really like architecture, both housing and landscape. In school I never seemed to grasp maths, but when I started studying landscape engineering and had to calculate mass and strength for durability, I realised I didn't have any issues with maths. I had issues with teachers. In hindsight I am disappointed, because I would have loved to study architecture, had I realised it wasn't me being a maths illiterate, but someone not being able to catch my attention. I should have known, because had no problem with physics, as long as it was astronomy or nuclear science. Electricity however, they could keep. I hated every second of it.

Comparatively speaking, I am late to the Star Trek party. But better late than never!
So was I. Which isn't strange since TOS aired only in 1977 during 8 weeks and then we were supposed to be done with it. I remember it vaguely. TNG started airing here in 1994, and then I was the right age and in the right place, because I'd had my first child 1½ months earlier and was home all the time and had the telly on. A friend of mine who was smitten by the Star Trek fever when TOS aired, got all fired up when I mentioned I was watching TNG and after that, things were never the same again. I was bitten.
