33Feb 15, 2012 8:07 PMI see something that sparks my interest and makes me think of something else I'd heard. I end up making obscure connections across content in my brain. But at the end I feel a sense of accomplishment, like I've checked off some subconscious list of "things to look up."
34Feb 15, 2012 7:59 PMYes, because I always feel as though I'm learning something new. No matter how trivial the information is, if I've learned something different or new, then I feel as though I'm expanding my knowledge base.
