An interesting thing is Formula 1, I think. I have been following Formula 1 from a young age. I think it's a proper 'nerd' sport: it's all about high-tech, strategy, split-second decisions, teamwork, skill, management etc.
For years, I was in a small 'bubble' of people who were into Formula 1, and these people generally were properly interested, and understood the intricacies of the sport.
But a few years ago, Max Verstappen joined the scene. And since then, a lot of people started following Formula 1.
But they do this at a very superficial level. They have no clue about the strategies etc involved. And they don't care about the sport in general. They just want to see Max Verstappen do well. If he retires, they switch off.
I found that I can't relate to these people, because they talk about Formula 1 as if they're talking about the weather. It's all very superficial, merely stating the obvious.
When I watch a race, I try to follow EVERYTHING. I try to predict who has to come in for a pitstop when, and what tyres they will switch to, and what strategy they're on. Likewise, when a safety car occurs, I try to predict things, and then check what actually happens.
Other people don't even seem to get the basic concept that someone may not be running in front at a given time, but you know they will get in front eventually, because the cars ahead are on a different strategy, and still have to pit.
These people will say: "Well, there hasn't been a single overtake, how boring!", while I have experienced the same race as an extremely tense one, because the strategies could go either way, and there was a constant threat between the front-runners.
I suppose the same happened with computers. When I started with computers in the early 80s, it was mostly for people who were really into computers, and knew what they were doing. These days everyone has a computer, and a lot of people barely know how to send an email.
Has little to do with Asperger perhaps... but in general, a lot of people are just too clueless to have any meaningful conversation with.
