Re: I am shocked, absolutely shocked
I suspect a lot of us here share that spark of curiosity. However, a good number of people I interact with on a daily basis have hardly given it a second thought. Odd. We've all found ourselves in this thing we call The Universe. Yet, there have been times I've been ridiculed for not having more grounded interests.
Different people are curious about different things...
I have relatives who know more about engines than me and i know a bit more about space than they do because those other things don't interest them or me...
