The science of human behavior: psychology, anthropology, political science, economics. Also the evolutionary debate: where did we come from exactly, and what are the arguments for and against pure materialism. And relativity and quantum are neat.
Would I look like an ignoramus if I said I don't read much scientific news these days? I do read mathematical/engineering papers when they pertain to my work.
Convincing them that they will be poor without the scientific developments. It's not an easy question to answer. How can brainy people not be looked at as the social undesirables? Demonstrate that nerds do better in life... ?
I'm an intellectual person stimulated by scientific explorations, and I would love to get to know some like-minded brains. I miss the lectures from college. I did a BS and MS in economics (it is so a science!) and now I'm a software engineer.
