    As title says. Can be a general area (such as economics) or something very specific. I don't mind.
    Just in one of those moods where I want to learn and absorb information. Preferably stuff that has some sort of everyday application/ use. But statistics/ pub quiz type knowledge is welcome too.
    Cheers in advance.

    Probably should say whats on the list already:
    • Calculus
    • Biology- neurotransmitters
    • Quantum theory
    • A level chemistry (and beyond)
    • Human psychology
    • Economics- the banking crisis; how the economy works in general
    • Cars
    • Computers: hardware, software, the internet, basic programming etc.
    • Statistics- political, gender-related, historical etc.

    Learn Mandarin Chinese. If after many many years you feel you have got this, then move on to Japanese. Then Korean. MASTER THEM, learn their history, become fully fluent in their scripts, idioms, jokes, cultures, everything.

    That's a lifetime of learning for you.

    Read up on strawman accounts, it's all to do with getting out of debt and most likely bull**** but I found it interesting.

    I usually have a look at these sorts of lists if I'm in that kind of mood:
    http://copybot.wordpress.com/2009/04...-on-wikipedia/
    But yeah, reading up on computer hardware and networking personally has been ridiculously useful as you can almost always fix your computer (or fix others for a small fee )
