Being a student of science, I am very interested in anything that has to do with science. I am particularly fascinated by weird science. In the following article, I will be exploring topics related to this science, as well as some other interesting fields.

The phenomenon of UFO sightings has been a thrilling topic for most of us over the years. America wouldn't be America without alien abductions stories and UFO sightings.

Experiences such as deja-vu are experienced by almost everyone. Astral projection, telekinesis and telepathy are some other experiences that you can explore. Food for Thought: Should paranormal be called abnormal or above normal?

The Predictive and Unpredictable Arts
Someone very wise once said, "If it isn't science, it's magic". The predictive arts are not magic, but they are not exact science either. Examples of predictive arts include face-reading, palmistry, and so on. Exploring the nature of such things make interesting essay topics. Food for Thought: How many predictions in your daily horoscope have come true?
Fun Fact: There's actually a Skeptic Encyclopedia of Pseudosciences.

Intriguing Animal Topics
All the essay writing topics given above are really interesting topics to write about, but interesting is a relative term. What may be interesting to one person may not be interesting to another. As an author, I find topics related to animals very interesting. The comparison of the crazy human behavior to normal animal behavior, the comparison of normal human behavior to crazy animal behavior, is quite intriguing, to say the least.

You can be sarcastic, funny, naughty, happy and emotional as well. You can write about your own experiences, you can borrow from someone else's experience, or you can 'make up' as you go along. Well, writing interesting things about relationships should be easy enough. Food for Thought: What do women want in a relationship?
Fun Fact: Did you know that heterosexuals and homosexuals respond differently to same type of pheromones?

Interesting Essay Writing Topics: Essay writing has been a form of self expression for centuries now. Finding the right essay topic is important. Also the nature of the topic should be such that the reader should feel like reading the essay at the first look. Food for Thought: What is the word count of the longest essay ever written?
Fun Fact: There was a 'shortest essay writing competition' held on the Internet. The essay that won was one-sentence long!

Funny Interesting Topics to Write About: Humor is the essence of life. If you haven't laughed, then you haven't lived. There is a reason why people call laughter the best medicine. Although humorous writing is not everyone's forte, writing on funny topics is worth it. Food for Thought: Mirror mirror on the wall, which is the funniest of them all.
Fun Fact: Donald Duck has a middle name and it is Fauntleroy.

End of the World: Doomsday prophesies are abound. The Mayan calender has predicted the end of the world in 2012. Nostradamus, a famous French astrologer, has also predicted the end of the world through his prophesies. As an astute student of science, I'd like to believe that these prophesies are nothing but calculated guesses at the most. Food for Thought: If the world is really going to end, what would you be doing right now?
Fun Fact: The world still exists!

So, let's not worry about whether the world is going to end or not. Chances are it's not. And even if it is, sooner or later, there's nothing we are going to be able to do about it. So, why worry? In fact, it's all the more reason to focus on writing something interesting before we die!
