Doesn't interest me

Why would anyone care that you choose to be ignorant? You carry on.

what a strange post

Quangle Wed 12-Nov-14 17:15:41

Nothing in the universe interests me. Nothing. It's been a slow day.

molesbreath Wed 12-Nov-14 17:17:09

Why post then ?


LadyLuck10 Wed 12-Nov-14 17:17:55

Do you explain everything you do op?

WetAugust Wed 12-Nov-14 17:18:02

Thanks Quangle. Not just me then. A scientist was on the radio just now saying he couldn't understand anyone who was not thoroughly absorbed by this attempt to land on a comet.

Well meet me.

Nothing wrong with not being interesting in certain things but why post about it.

You're not unreasonable not to give a monkey's uncle about the comet landing but why start a thread stating your complete disinterest in it? confused

I can understand being annoyed by the frivolity of the "rubber duckie shape" news angle, but that's just one way of looking at it.

pluCaChange Wed 12-Nov-14 17:24:03

Or was it the arrogance of "can't understand anyone... not thoroughly absorbed..."?

Other people are.

Does the news have to only be things you are interested in?

AesSedai Wed 12-Nov-14 18:21:27

So? You honestly think I want to hear about what you think about it? Jog on, dear.

Quangle Wed 12-Nov-14 18:33:21

I think you got the wrong end of my post there wet grin

That's can pick and choose what you are interested in.

Our household is loving it!

KenAdams Wed 12-Nov-14 18:42:00

Aren't you just so original and quirky for starting a thread to show us all how different you are?

kippersmum Wed 12-Nov-14 18:46:31

You don't have to be interested in it OP but a lot of people are and it is an amazing achievement for 2 reasons... 1) The fact ESA have managed to do it & 2) my 2 DD's have turned into science fans and are fascinated by the whole thing smile YABU

My mils cat died today. Only went in for teeth cleaning poor thing.

Marginally more interesting than this op.

CleverPlansAndSecretTricks Wed 12-Nov-14 18:49:31

I know what you mean OP! My DH is so excited about it, and I'm trying to work up some enthusiasm so I can join in... I do like science stuff and space stuff sometimes, but comets just don't capture my imagination somehow.

I did just read something about how difficult it was to land on it and that made ignore interesting...will see if I can find it.

(Ps why are some people being so mean to the OP? there is no need to be rude)

CleverPlansAndSecretTricks Wed 12-Nov-14 18:49:58

It more. Not ignore.

KimHollywood Wed 12-Nov-14 18:50:01

Think you'll find none of us are interested in you either OP.

InspirationEscapesMe Wed 12-Nov-14 18:51:41

I was surprised the BBC News closed with it. Nothing else whatsoever happening in the world then? DH tried to explain why it was important and interesting but <shrug>

stillstandingatthebusstop Wed 12-Nov-14 18:52:04

I would normally struggle to see the relevance of landing a probe on a comet millions of miles away but I have been watching Brian Cox's series The Human Universe on iplayer (with lots of rewinding as I try to understand it) and I am getting fascinated by these ideas about our place in space and time. The landing should (I think) add to this understanding. It's amazing what these scientists and engineers can do.

ThatDamnedBitch Wed 12-Nov-14 18:57:23

AIBU that I'm not interested that you're not interested?

BTW YANBU to not be interested in the comet, but why post about it? confused I'm very interested in the comet.
