Fun ways to enjoy information

This is a quick list that I'm brainstorming. Jumping out at me is the similarity between dressing up to match a character and copying through transcription. Is there any distant connection to echophenomenon? Also, I see that I prefer to visualize data in sets (chapters of the Bible, whole-animal anatomy) rather than in pieces (verses of the Bible, disjointed biology facts). There's a need for accuracy even when dealing with accurate bits of data because they are no longer accurate if assembled incorrectly. Sincerity, completeness, and accuracy go hand-in-hand.
