Unexpected Topics - Part 2

*Here is the curious unexpected topics meme. If you wish to participate let me know in the comments, and I will give you three topics, or spheres of interests, which I think you are not interested in, or maybe you'll surprise me with your interest and/or knowledge. Then you talk about those subjects in your journal. It's interesting to see who knows what about what.*

zhelana gave me these:

1. Fastpitch Softball: Isn’t this just softball? As opposed to slow pitch softball, which is what they used to relegate girls to playing?

2. Butterflies: Many of them are pretty. As a child, I favored monarch butterflies. As an adult, my favorite is the blue Morpheus. I have some pretty cool pictures of them resting on rusting World War II planes on Guadalcanal. I’ve also been to a couple of walk-through butterfly houses. There’s one in Westminster, Colorado and another in Key West.

3. Ukraine: I haven’t been to Ukraine, but it is on my list. The problem is that I specifically want to go to places in the Crimea, which has been taken over by Russia. I suspect that if I do go there, I will be singing the song "Djankoye" for weeks after. (If you go to Sebastopol, it’s not far from Simferopol, just a little further on …) Fortunately, I don't know any songs about Odessa.

Also, why does Joe Biden spell the name of Ukraine’s capital "Kiyiv," while everyone else seems to stick to "Kiev?"
