I just realised something insane about myself. I am obsessed with subtitles. I understand, write, and speak both arabic and english at a fairly comfortable level. There are two things you need to know here. First, arabic is my first language (I think), and second, all the television I watch is almost strictly english speaking.

Now, my interest in american and british programming has manifested quite early in my life. Because, I'm the professional television watcher that I am (fancy words for couch potatoe), I have always been able to listen to what's being said, watch what's going on, and read the subtitles whenever they were available. I didn't need subtitles , but I considered having them a luxury, which I fully intended to use, which I did. Perhaps not intentionally, but I think I owe a bit of doing that to my english getting better and better over the years.

Since then, almost all my television watching is been unsubtitled. Only because it's unavailable, not because I see it less of a luxury now. I'm saying this, because I was watching an arabic video subtitled in english on youtube, and I was reading the subtitles ! ... in arabic !

That got me thinking and made realise that I always prefer to have subtitles activated when I'm watching DVDs as well, even though it wouldn't influence my viewing experience or understanding any more or any less. I even like having english subtitles on, when watching english programming (like closed caption).

God, I'm so quirky it's almost neat.

gI hate watching movies or shows without subtitles. I really REALLY enjoy "reading" what am watching =P (to the annoyance of some of my friends). Maybe that's why I love anime so much ...

If subtitles isn't available then I'd either have the volume turned up real loud or have headphones on.
