Thread: What are you hobbies besides THE hobby?

  1. #1

    What are you hobbies besides THE hobby?

    What do you like to do in your free time? I know some of you really like watches a lot, but besides that?

    I have always been a super-hero comic book reader and I still am today. Same with video games. Been playing since the Atari 2600 and I still play a lot, mostly on the computer. I also like movies, but mostly genre and sci-fi movies. I used to like comedy, but I got tired of the juvenile jokes about drugs and bodily functions.

    When I was young, I got laughed at by other kids because of those hobbies. Now, I am almost a god to younger people for knowing so much about the super-heroes they see in the movies and video games in general! Things change! (although it is still hard to be taken seriously by women for not growing up lol)

    EDIT: I made a typo in the title. I wrote "you" instead of your. It takes a guy who wrote a thread about grammar mistakes to make an obvious one that he can't edit!

    I do love cooking, love watching movies especially the older B&W stuff anything with any of the Rat Pack is a plus as well. I used to sketch I should get back into it I really enjoyed that.

    Why does this feel like I'm writing a dating profile?

    You play on console or PC? I have Diablo 3 on PC but didn't get the expansion. After 2 hours of clicking, I kinda got bored lol I prefer online games like Starcraft or lately Heroes of the Storm (only in alpha but great game!)

    Nah. If it was a dating profile, it would look more like this: going to the gym (sorry Numerati!), camping, traveling, dining with friends and red wine. Every single person on these sites like those things. And I bet 90% of them do those things once every 3 years. Except for the wine. I guess. People aren't honest. It's not because I like to travel that I do it often. I wouldn't consider it a hobby because I did it once and liked it! :P

    Sorry about that, got worked up over the hypocrisy of most of those people at those sites lol Which I didn't frequent in about 15 years so it might have changed. Hopefully

    And now back to our regularly scheduled program!

    I like sports hockey, I still play the game, scuba diving, and downhill skiing and I love old muscle cars. On summer I like to visit certain places to see old restored muscle cars ant see what the owner did with it. I like to dismantle engines and rebuild then and modifie them. It is a precision job and I like that.

    Le golf est ma passion. Je joue environ 50 parties l'été et je fais des voyages de golf l'hiver. La Californie m'attend l'hiver prochain.

    I play it on the PC. D3 Vanilla was a mess especially with the Auction House. Glad it was closed down. The Reaper of Souls Expansion pack really made the game much much better. I don't own any gaming consoles btw. There are some things like Seasons that you can get on the PC that you can't get on the console though. What I like about D3 on console is that you can play offline. I used to play StarCraft. I own a copy of StarCraft 2 Wings of Liberty. Planning to get the final Legacy of the Void because it is a stand alone game and you don't need Wings of Liberty to play it.

    cycling- i have found it the best way to keep in shape once you reach middle age. also, i usually incorporate cycling into my travels since it provides a more up-close experience.

    i will cycle outside until my usual route becomes too icey and many years i have cycled into january. i can usually dress warm enough to tolerate the cold- i use the same layered clothing that i use for nordic skiing. i then move the bike inside and use it as a stationary bike. i purchased a CycleOps stand which was relatively inexpensive and works well. i have the bike positioned in the basement in front of a projection tv so that i can cycle while watching sporting events and i find this relieves much of the boredom. this year i have already moved my bike inside due to our early snowstorm and lingering ice. i have become a bit of a cylcing fanatic since i have found it to be low impact and about the only aerobic exercise that i can maintain for an hour or two. i would highly recommend it to anyone getting a little older and trying to keep their weight down and maintain a reasonable level of fitness. i had knee problems when i participated in sports during my youth and i can say that since i have been cycling i have not had any muscle or joint problems. the only health related "problem" that i had was once my psa jumped up from 1 to 10. my doctor was quite shocked and had me see an urologist. it appears that the high psa was because i was riding too far forward on my seat and the seat was pressing against my prostate. anyway i am sure that this is more than you really wanted to know.
