    👐 Another that has a weird interest in reading about crimes.

    I also like reading about history, modern & ancient. I'll read about the same thing for weeks if it's interesting enough.
    It all started when my older brother had to do an assignment on Martin Luther King when I was 7 and I read all three books that he borrowed from the library.

    I admit, I don't usually run in those circles, but I used to work in real estate and he was a tenant. I was pretty freaked out to be honest.

    I love surgery/health type shows. If I had the brains I'd have studied medicine.

    I love crime/medical stuff. It's hard to day to some people that one of your favourite shows is Law and Order: SVU! I also have a fascination in Jack the Ripper. I remember reading Patricia Cornwalls book about him many many years ago, and it sparked an interest. When I went to London I desperately wanted to go on a Jack the Ripper walking tour, but no one wanted to go with me. As it happened, on one of the days we all went out (my aunt, uncle, sister and I) we ended up in the east end of London and did a short walk to 2 of the murder sites. I also wanted to go to a museum in London that had on display all the old surgical implements and what not, but again no one wanted to go with me. One of my favourite excursions at school was to the law courts and the police museum. The police museum has heaps of interesting stuff from unsolved murders etc, like a bloodied knife, recreations of murder scenes etc. and when we went to the courts we got to sit in on a murder trial. (Our teacher didn't know that was on until we'd all been in, too late to stop us haha)

    Default What unusual things interest you?

    True crime.

    Death row prisoners' final statements (and I also lost a year of my life collecting data about age/race/level of schooling of death row inmates in Texas).

    Judge's sentencing remarks.

    September 11. I read the whole report a few years ago. I am completely and utterly obsessed with it.

    Latin and the etymology of words.

    ETA how could I forget my complete obsession with Air Crash Investigation?!

    harvs who do you believe was responsible for 9/11? I watched a very interesting doco on tv once by some American dude saying he didn't believe it was a terrorist attack, rather an inside job. Lots of very interesting stuff. I've never forgotten it.

    I go through stages with true crime stuff and macabre things.
    I watched a doco about suicides from the Golden Gate bridge - that is still haunting me weeks later.
    Falling Man - 9/11 docos all that sort of stuff.

    Conspiracy theories about events such as 9/11, JFK assassination, etc. Also major natural disasters - I'm all over those badly made TV documentaries about them
