Stolen from angelofthenorth:

Pick an interest from my interests page that either 1) you know nothing about but sounds intriguing, or 2) you know something about but can't fathom why yours truly would be interested in it, and demand an explanation. Verily will I provide.

Unfortunately I haven't succeeded in obtaining any yet. Maybe I should ask spiritrover or pathfindress if they've got any ideas of where I could find an unwanted one.

They're cool anyway, though....

exalted -- on the grounds that I've at least a vague idea what all the rest are.

I suppose I should get myself some interests one of these days. This is the second meme of recent days that's relied on them....

Exalted is a roleplaying system and setting produced by White Wolf. In the grand tradition of Fantasy roleplaying the characters are Heroic people who have been Exalted by one of a small number of agencies (7 gods, "Gaia" or the Deathlords), gaining super-human powers in the process.

Thanks to a Great Curse laid down by the ancient creators of creation, though, these Exalts also have Great Flaws; and the most powerful of them were overthrown by the weaker (Terrestrial) Exalts some 1,500 years ago because of these flaws. These Solar Exalts are now hunted down and killed whenever they are discovered.

Depending on the flavour of the month, Exalted either is or isn't the Second Age in the world in which Vampire and Werewolf are the Sixth Age...

I can't remember whom I stole that one off now, but it's part of the whole recursiveness thing. It might as well be called "recursive paradoxes", but "not having this interest" is more poetic.

Flanders and Swann were a comic musical partnership, who wrote, played and sang many songs including the Hippopotomus Song (Mud, mud...), the Gnu Song (..a gnother gnu!...) and First and Second Law (Heat is Work and Work is Heat...).

Once again Wikipedia is my friend:

They wrote the Hippopotamus song!!! I love the Hippopotamus song! *sings* "A bold hippopotamus was standing one day/by the banks of the cool Shalimar/he gazed at the bottom as it peacefully lay/by the light of the evening star..."

Yay! Thanx!

Rin is a character in the Phoenix Feathers webcomic. She has a Wiki page here: http://www.toothycat.net/wiki/wiki.pl?action=browse&id=PhoenixFeathers/Rin and I have the pleasure to self-identify as a Rin Fanboy....

Well, many years ago, before we started to build dyson spheres around suns, we built rings. And I don't mean rings around suns, but rings that orbitted suns loosely, and let the light in through the side.

One of those rings was known as chiark.

It got destroyed during the Idiran War.

However, in one of the many strange incidents relating to that war, a part of the Mind of chiark got blasted back many many centuries, back to a planet known only as Earth; where it came into the possession of an early Computing Pioneer known to us as Diziet.

Er, shouldn't that be forward? (In which case it doesn't really need to be blasted at all....)

Gurgeh was living on it after the war. Perhaps you're thinking of Vavatch.
