I'm such a geek. Yes, I admit it. I'm not just the type that will look up random histories of things as I go throughout my day (I mean, surely I'm not the only one who wants to know who in the world developed cotton candy, right? A dentist, by the way--figure that one out, LOL). I'm the type who looks forward to looking up history when I'm visiting a new place.
So yeah. There you have it. I may just have to join a History Lovers Anonymous. I can only imagine how fun those meetings might be! ;-)
