What's interesting?

I polled the class on which of topics they would like me to cover in the remaining classes. This gave me a popularity ranking on the options I offered, from most to least popular (n=141 respondents):

  1. sleep.jpgAre there aliens? (91%)
  2. Is a Zombie apocalypse coming? (87%)
  3. Are animals gay? (84%)
  4. Why haven’t we cured cancer? (72%)
  5. Why do we sleep? (66%)

This order is the complete reverse of what is interesting to me and (I believe) the vast majority of scientists. Go figure.
