@uberbatman is it?

For me? My passions change with the wind. Not predictable but annoying when it’s directly in your ear for long enough.

Animal rights.

Followed closely by neuroscience. And women’s health.

@Vunessuh – I am so relieved that someone else out there is as passionate about Polyesterarianism as I am! You gave me the strength to admit my passion for it as well and I am grateful and humbled! I want to donate all my time and money and my mother-in-law.How can I do this? ;)

@lucillelucillelucille Thank you so much. Your concern and interest in Polyesterarianism means the world to me and all the other Pollys of the world!
All you have to do is wear your badge and you’re good to go. And don’t forget to check out the blog for tips on how to iron out your wrinkles in your polyester outfits. Polly bless!

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

@Vunessuh -My commitment to it is real.No bullshit here ;)))))))

Blueroses's avatar

damn @Vunessuh I thought the biggest selling point of Polyesterarianism was getting to throw my iron into the volcano. You must adhere to a different sect.

Vunessuh's avatar

@Blueroses Actually, instead of an iron, you get to throw @lucillelucillelucille ‘s mother-in-law into a volcano. XD

I’ll answer my own question since that’s only fair…

For me it’s drones—aircraft that fly themselves autonomously. Inertial navigation also greatly interests me and I’ve released and develop an open source piece of software (check it out here if you want to stab your eyeballs out) that can accurately estimate the orientation and position of an aircraft using gyros and other MEMS sensors.

chyna's avatar

Damn, @timtrueman‘s answer is so much more interesting than mine.

Blueroses's avatar

@Vunessuh & @lucillelucillelucille Is it a best of 3 tries? I’ve attempted mother-in-law hurling and it’s harder than it looks on TV.

And now @timtrueman brought it back to real passion, which is right now, time travel (is or isn’t it possible? what about the meeting yourself paradox?)

timtrueman's avatar

@Blueroses Time travel is possible but only into the future.

Blueroses's avatar

No, no. Future won’t do. I want 10 years back with all of my current knowledge.
TARDIS, now!

Animal rights, atheism, and evolution.

TexasDude's avatar

@woodcutter, right on, brother. I bet I’m the only other person here who knows what you mean…

woodcutter's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard Heh, there has to be more, going by some of the few threads I’ve seen here. Or they might not want to admit it. I would understand why, though

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Logic! Always geeting to the end of logic.

Breed Specific Legislation. Deed Not Breed.

Also books and literature.

Age descrimination.

They are both of equal importance in the overall scheme of life, but as I get older the latter is becoming more relevant to my existence.

Cruiser's avatar

Zoot suits and those silvery shadows on the highway….IMO nothing else really matters.
