    I was just wandering what fascinates everyone.

    For me its big structures i don't know why but they do.

    For example Michigan Central Station i hope to go there one day.

    So what fascinates you?

    Old ipods get my attention for some reason! I love them to death, the only problem is I don't have the money to buy them :(

    This is not my photo! The picture is from another MacRumors user.

    History, I suppose. Trying to understand who we were, how did we become who we are, and where will the evolution take us.

    Among other things, of course. :)

    What a idea for thread nice!

    For me

    1. Women ( summer glau and olivia Wilde for a start :) )

    2. Older macs. I love looking at the old service manuals, tinkering with old systems.

    3. Watching People play guitars, particularly Lindsay Buckingham (fleetwood Mac) and Barry Gibb (Bee Gees) ( he is my hero) I could sit there and watch for hours watching these two play.

    4 Computers in General, How they work, things you can do with them etc

    5. Watching Shows like Man VS Wild, and Sir David Attenborough's documentarys.

    6. Why in movies / tv shows they give aussies crap accents

    Savants fascinate me. I love watching documentaries involving them. It's crazy what the human brain is capable of. A notable savant died recently (Kim Peek) who was the inspiration for the film Rain Man.

    Just checked it out: 19 Dec. What an interesting person. It is pretty amazing what makes people "tick", right? In his case, to be able to read the left page in a book with his left eye and the right page with his right eye, and then continue flipping the pages every 8 seconds or so until he was done with the book. Sheesh, I don't even know what to say. Amazing.

    Science and the natural world. Wildlife, animals, evolution, that kind of thing. Reading about it and being amongst it. It never bores me, ever.

    And books, generally. Science, philosophy and history. I love books.

    Brilliant places made by nature (big, mountainous, lake filled areas)
    Brilliant things made by man (Burj Dubai being the most recent).

    1. Women... still somewhat of a mystery after all these years...
    2. Ancient times... I'd love to know human history from say about 100,000 BC to now. Of course that is something unobtainable unless someone invents the iWayback machine.
    3. Life in the universe... Someday we will know... until then...
    4. Life after death... The ultimate question...

    Inventors / Entrepreneurs / Magnates: I like to hear how they came up with their idea and pieced it together and built their fortune. Read books about/by Rockefeller, Trump, Hearst, Carnegie and others.

    The Human Body: Learning about it now and its amazing how much is not known.

    Other people in general: I like talking to strangers and don't mind going out to bars / restaurants by myself and being friendly. Listening to their jobs and what they do is fascinating. So many people have jobs that make you say "I guess someone has to do that." Met many different people this way, from a guy who picks jurys for trials to trauma surgeon who was my twin; we met at an airport bar, our iphones sparked a conversation, then we left to walk the 5 gates to our planes. Same plane, seated right next to each other. We drank the whole way to Vegas, went to pay for drinks, we had the same wallet. Also each had the same 2nd wallet on us (in our bags). Odd circumstances.
