    Got an alternate hobby?

    My main source of hobbying was always strip clubs. Over the years I spent a lot of time, and a helluva lot of money, trying new clubs, new girls, new ways to pass the time, and of course, new ways to try and get laid. All with no regrets. Even the nights that didn't get anywhere but Frustration Central didn't outweigh the sense of satisfaction from the successes: "It's not the kill, it's the thrill of the chase". I pretty much abandoned the SC scene about 5 years ago since I had pretty much tried every SC in a 100 km radius of Montreal, more than once. I just didn't get any thrill any more. The attitude of the scene had changed. It was more about business than fun: The clubs were starting to gouge with extra tips for the doormen, higher entrance fees, higher prices for warmer beer and more diluted drinks. The girls were padding dance counts, charging $10 for air dances, and not even letting you warm up your seat before asking for a dance. And, to me, the customers just got more rude, arrogant, and intolerant, calling girls ugly, fat, niggers, etc, creating a less than pleasant atmosphere. Sure those things always went on to a certain extent, but I found them to have gotten too commonplace for me. Most certainly due to the fact that I had changed with the years too.

    So I went on to find a new way to fill my time. I tried sking, golf, 4 wheeling with an ATV, fishing, blah, blah, blah. I ended up on of all things, video gaming. I started with a used original Xbox, moved on to a better equipped PC, and now have a PS3 and an Xbox 360. It may sound like a childish way to spend my time, but let me tell you, the new games have absolutely nothing to do with the old Atari 2600 some of our older posters may remember from their youth. Todays games (some anyways) do actually require that you do more than memorize what your enemy will do next. Some skill is required. Try Call of Duty 4 on the hardest level and tell me I'm wrong. If you think that you just sit at home alone, blasting electronic people to bits, slowly turning into an anti social nerd, think again. Online gaming has allowed me to talk with people all around the world, on a variety of subjects, much like this board. You "meet" a hundred kids/weirdos/sociopaths for every one individual worth talking to. But how is that all that different from real life? As an added bonus, by my estimate, it's also cheaper than SC's. And getting laid is just an incall away.

    Now that I've bored you to tears: Have you got an alternate hobby?

    Stamp collecting

    I find that it goes well with this other hobby because I look over my stamps and go: "Hmm.. I've not had a chick from Moldova yet. I'm going to get some Moldovan pussy and see what that is like."

    Firearms

    I am into firearms. I grew up with guns around the house and learned to love the hobby of collecting, shooting, maintaining etc etc. I have a collection of 18 firearms, a mix bag of handguns, rifles and shotguns. I have been a member of the NRA for 33 years and often travel to gun shows south of the border. My most rare firearm is a WW-II Solothurn 36M 20mm anti-tank rifle in perfect condition. Of course all are licensed, insured and secured. I am a member of several gun clubs in Canada the US and the UK. Anyone else into firearms?

    I have been thinking of taking up some time at the shooting range lately... looks like a good outlet for frustrations... My dad had lots of guns... never got to play with them though...

    Oddly enough, I never considered my family to be a mere distraction from real life.
