I was sitting here thinking about the things that I know I have never been what we call book smart but I like to think I have good ol' common sense : but some things if they really interest me I learn all I can about them. The one subject that I know very well may not be important to others but it means a lot to me.

What would you say was the one thing that you know the most about? Maybe not everything about but darn near everything

I guess I should share what mine is I have researched and read every single thing I can get my hands on about circ and the natural function of the foreskin. I am still learning every day as well.

Jack of all trades, master of nothing

I know enough to get by or be pretty good at a lot of things. Cooking, homecare type stuff, books, kids development, breastfeeding, crafts, sewing. But I'm not great at any of it (well, I'm a darn good cook).

I'm basically average all around.

I've always wanted to learn more about that. Fascinated by it really
but never sat down to try an understand it. Maybe you could
direct me to a few sites that aren't too complex to read?

A good place to start is getting a script to Scientific American And check out the site. They talk about it a lot.

http://superstringtheory.com/

A good read is "if the moon didn't exist" It is about more than if the moon wasn't here. It is a easy read and really explains why things are they way they are. It is mostly theories but it is neat to see how one thing being different the whole world would be different.

English literature, I guess, because that's what I teach! But also educational theory, and anything I choose to read up on.

Birth. I am willing to bet a whole lotta money that i know more about regular pregnancy and birth (and a lot of variations of normal) than a good portion of ob/gyn's.

I also know a ton about blood incompatilibility. I am a hoot at parties

ooohhh! This is so intriguing too. I want to be your friend!!!


As for me: cultural history of psychology, clinical psychology, philosophical hermeneutics. BUT, I'm starting a new journey that, hopefully, will compliment my current "things I'm good at"... childbirth education through Birth Works International. Yay!

well its not real warcraft, its a video game, but its massive online role playing game so its a bit interactive and social. i just know about how to set up raids, strategies to win, how long to get stuff, where to find stuff, etc.

and the med tech stuff i am a blood banker so, like someone else mentioned, i know a fair amount about incompatibility and transfusion medicine. from the clinical side, lab stuff.

any specific questions?

Wow, I didn't see that coming... I know nothing of video games! But from the sound of it, I would definitely want to be on your team for any game!
