It can be a fact or anything.

When I was a little kid I would play Madagascar on PlayStation 2, where it started you as a Zebra in a zoo. I would spent the first 10 minutes slowly walking around pretending to actually be the Zebra before starting the story. The NPCS or people (I don't know if they were NPCS or shadows in the background, my memory is foggy). would watch which made me want to pretend to be an animal.

It was one of the earliest video games I played or finished, so I was fascinated with everything, even the people.

I am fascinated with maps. I like to open any old road atlas I find of areas I know well and try to guess when they were printed based on the existence of certain roads or highways. And aside from that I love spending hours on regional maps (hiking maps; historical maps; detailed geographical ones) and get to know the courses of streams and their names, the locations of hamlets, connecting roads, etc.

Oh similarly I love globes. I like seeing how far I am in relation to other areas of the word.

Sometimes I play around in Google Earth, and the street view is especially fun.

the CEO of renaissance technologies, peter brown, is one of geoffrey hinton's (the "godfather of deep learning") earliest students which was a random piece of trivia I thought was pretty interesting

he got poached from an IBM speech recognition team into joining renaissance tech. (many others too, Magerman, the Della Pietra twins etc.), along with his friend robert mercer. (mercer and brown were co-CEOs at ren tech for quite some time)

robert mercer (back when he was still co-CEO) basically single handedly set up trump's victory (https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2017/03/27/the-reclusive-hedge-fund-tycoon-behind-the-trump-presidency) so that's also pretty interesting

also some of Ren Tech's competitors like TGS management have their fair share of money being thrown around (https://www.cnbc.com/2014/05/09/mystery-13-billion-philanthropists-revealed.html)

TGSM founder Andrew Shechtel is pretty good with math https://littlesis.org/person/153348-Andrew_Shechtel/political# ie:
he had entered Johns Hopkins University around the time he turned 16, graduating at 19 with degrees in math and political economy.
yeesh, I was in like 2nd year uni by the time this guy graduated at age 19?? I never stood a chance in this market -_-

I work around a lot of food, and I could small talk all day long about things people are buying, and what they're using it for, and the dishes they make. I'm really genuinely interested in different foods, and meals and etc. I think that's strange to a lot of people, because often employees in the grocery business don't really care, it's just a job. I actually find it interesting. lol

I also tend to end up on strange history pages on wikipedia, and learn things about different countries that no one cares about. Useless information that sometimes I just wanna ABSORB.
