I suppose it makes sense that Lord of the Rings and punk are my most common interests and "lists like this one" my least common interest. But it seems really strange to me that 2286 people share my interest in etymology while only 45 join me in fetishizing midriffs. And how many of the 440 people interested in Michel Foucault do you suppose are also included among the 584 interested in weasels?
