I’m someone who really likes to know stuff. If there is information to be gleaned from something, I want to know what it is. And then I like to experiment with it. If you tell me something interesting, my immediate question will be “why?” and then “what would happen if I did [this]?”
I like to know how things work. I like to take things apart (though I’ve always been afraid to take really complicated stuff apart) and I like to study how the different parts work together to create the result. I can watch something work, and then based on that, I can figure out how to fix it when it’s broken. I don’t always have the tools to do so, but I can tell you what needs to be done in order for it to be fixed.
I’m one of those people who will think up really weird random questions, and then look up the answers. I married someone who is the same way, though he’s a little less rabid about needing to know stuff. He likes to know stuff. I NEED to know stuff.
I like to wonder about the results of social experiments. Like setting my status on FB to “single” and see how many people crawl out of the woodwork to message me.
I have a weird fascination with time travel, and I wonder if it taps into that. Any movie, tv show, book, whatever, that involves time travel, I’m hooked. Maybe because if you had a time machine, you could go and find out pretty much anything you wanted to, either in the past or the future. And how awesome is that?
One thing I’m fascinated by is by the 4 or 5 hits a day I’m apparently getting here. I was floored when I saw that I actually had traffic. 4 hits, people! I thought it was getting crowded in here!
So, if you’re reading me, answer me this: if you had a time machine and you could only go in one direction (and back to the present), would you go forwards in time or backwards? And to what year?
