idk if it counts as niche but lolita, gyaru, and a few other jfashions
even more than the fashion itself I'm obsessed with the subculture surrounding it plus how it's changed over time and online spaces for it (like for lolita the old livejournal blogs, and all the drama, etc)
also obsessed with old internet nostalgia and drama, lolcows, imageboard subculture - basically typical terminally online stuff but from back in the good old days before it was commonplace to be an internet addict lol

It’s a game made by a single dev in a small country, only found through a certain foreign language thread in an already niche interest forum, and has an active community of around 20 ppl, and I’m the only woman, so I’d doxx myself if I did tell you that.

Proto-indo-europeans, I actually learn PIE phrases and words in my spare time, but no one cares to know about how greek gods are descended from the PIE pantheon.

Martin?? I loved that movie since 2018

Or tbh now that I think about it, it's just more etymology and stuff in general

I obsessively browse occult threads in anonymous boards just to see the absurdities they come up with. It's become a hobby to me.
Other than that, silent film era actresses. I love reading their biographies for some reason.

incel/mgtow/redpill kind of stuff. ex. wheat waffles on yt [Not a moid I swear]. i watch their videos and stuff even though i disagree with most of it. but it's kinda interesting to me, idk why. I think shows it men's unmasked nature. It makes me kinda hate them more but that's not the reason I watch it. I watched these kinds of videos for years before becoming pinkpilled. just curiosity i guess? biological and psychological differences between men and women in general interests me. maybe thats why

I used to be the same, I was browsing r9k everyday. But it was unhealthy. A bit like digital self harm? So I stopped and focused on feline animals and seals.

Ohh, UFOs. What are you most interested in? Abduction stories scare the shit of me. I definitely recommend the book The Intimate Alien for an incredible analysis of what the alien abduction phenomenon might symbolize from an anthropo/sociological perspective.

I am such a fan of soviet trams and commie blocks, but not in a doomer way - seeing all the soviet architecture makes me so elated, i could talk about it all day long. I got a drone for my bday just so i could film my favorite apartment complex nearby, made an attempt to take my peers to an excursion there and i am planning to get a tattoo of it.. I even somehow managed to procrastinate productively with my interest: instead of finishing my assignments for uni, i would build paper models of trams, draw the apartment complex, crochet a commie block sweater, knit a tram scarf etc. Even my philosophy project for the end of semester was about the philosophy of soviet housing. And well, almost nobody seems to share my hobby, maybe some 30-50 y.o men on domofoto or transphoto etc. I kinda tried to get myself involved into some urbanist party on Twitter or something, but they are much more into getting rid of the commie blocks..

not sure how niche it is, but i enjoy looking at dead corners of the internet. this includes websites that don't receive much traffic, or old blogs. my current interest is finding old youtube channels of random people, and going through the channels they are subscribed to. they are usually subbed to their friends channels. i look at the plans that they made but never went through with, such as making more videos. i also look at the comments they leave each other. all these accounts have been essentially abandoned for like 10 years, and i wonder what those people are up to now. i like the empty feeling it gives me, not quite depression, but it doesn't really feel good either. it's like recoiling from a bad smell, but then being compelled to take another sniff.

I also like so-called "commie blocks" and brutalism, anon. The hate they get is completely undeserved but almost no one understands.
I think your hobby is pretty cool.

brvtalism is 20/10 but >>119177 is right, it's easy for your neighbours to do petty (turning music on very loud and if the walls are thin, gets annoying really quick; loud stomping, talking (the worst is a straight couple arguing or even domestic violence happening, horrifying and sick) etc etc) or even horrific stuff if you're being gang stalked (the gov agencies pay your neighbours to install psychotronic devices and either the agency members or paid trained agents living on a wage from that operate them. check out the gang stalking thread for more.)

>have you fallen into any rabbit hole you found particularly interesting in the process?
yes, i found a rather lengthy personal drama that an individual was going through in their life that spanned several years and multiple websites. it was like watching a soap opera, i was fascinated by them and the manner they were living their life. once they went offline, or made new accounts or whatever, i made the mistake of reaching out to them at one point to ask if things ever got resolved and they were sort of confused as to who i was and why i cared, and it caused them to delete almost everything. i still regret that last part.

Lol same. I love ancient and medieval history and languages that do not have to do with the Roman empire. I even majored in linguistics.

Folk tales/lore, the more obscure the better. It doesn't matter the culture they are from, although I have a soft spot for Slavic ones. It's hard to find really rare ones because people who tell them are old and those countries only recently got internet probably. There are some dedicated websites for more obscure stuff, but those are hard to find because they usually arent in English and they are just older websites that don't come up in searches. I wish to one day write an epic adventure story with similar vibes and elements to old European folk tales.

Nuclear radiation, nuclear reactors, nuclear weapons. Anything involving highly radioactive materials and nuclear reactions. The sheer power, the god-like hubris, of humanity's ability to harness literal atoms, the building blocks of our universe, and use them for both mass energy generation and mass destruction… the gravity and magnificence of such an accomplishment is unutterable.

I mostly just watch YouTube videos on nuclear science and read particle physics textbooks. It makes me sound smart but people don't really care about hearing it besides the surface-level novelty of the subject. I don't know nearly everything about the field, not by any means, but I just want to talk about the intricacies of nuclear reactor designs with somebody. It makes me so happy.
