    I have numerous interests. The zoo/animal interests are obviously what I am most interested in. But I have many more also.

    Here is a ranked list of my top greatest interest subjects:
    1. Animals, natural history and Zoology in general
    2. Zoos and wild animals in captivity
    3. Politics especially, and other subjects about society
    4. Geography and traveling (eg. populations, sigths, cities etc especially in The United States and Africa, not geological geography,)
    5. Architecture and engineering
    6. Languages (especially nynorsk)
    7. Technology
    8. Philosoping and reflecting (something I do)
    9. Several other subjects: like climate change, the environment, swimming (something I do), culture, music, religion, knowledge about TV programs and film production, photography and filming (something I do) several TV shows like The Simpsons, Eurovision, and off course animal related programs, "supernatural" things and events, websites like Zoochat and Facebook. Also fun facts, popular science and common knowledge.

    Some subjects that interests me only sligthly or not at all:
    -History
    -Sports
    -Math
    -Botany
    -The human body and medicine
    -Chemistry
    -Physics
    -Astronomy

    So what interests do you have? And what stuff are you not at all interested in?

    In July 2013 I was returning from Chester zoo and the line through the local station (Bache) was closed. A severe summer storm had caused excess flooding and the elcetrical supply had shorted out. I walked the mile and a bit back to Chester station. :D

    Yeah, I also like reading, going to nature, having fun with friends, gaming, photography and having fun. But these are hobbies in adition to being interests, they are not only interests.
