These days, pop science and psychology books along the lines of The
Selfish Gene. I was an absolute book worm when I was young, I would
be constantly reading kids novels, fantasy novels as well as lots
of science, these days I spend more time reading heavy technical
and scientific books, and more than that just general interest on
I've just finished A Song of Ice and Fire recently, I haven't been
into fantasy or fiction in general since I was a kid, but that's an
incredible series. The show was what pulled me in, and I'm fairly
addicted. I love how real the whole thing feels, despite the
setting with dragons and magic etc.
TV shows, who could list everything they liked but here are a few..
Firefly, Father Ted, Samurai Jack, Ghost in the Shell: SAC, The
Simpsons before season 9, Futurama (especially a small number of
episodes that really stand out) etc. I don't watch TV very often
though, I only recently bought a TV (to attach my games consoles
to) after not having one for I don't know how many years.
