That I had no idea the Russia-Ukraine war was going to take place... Me being oblivious of the Russosphere... How corrupt and hopeless Europolitics is... even though I had inklings. All this makes me realize I didn't understand the world after all. I think my bubble was a mighty large one, but a bubble nonetheless. This isn't people / governments keeping secret from you, it's not knowing where to look, or lacking the interest.
I still don't know if interest is a spontaneous thing. It doesn't seem like I can force myself into anything, but this bitter taste lingers after the fact. What may be consequential.
I really hate the bible.
