SWMBO says I should start up some old hobbies again to deal with my stress. She asks what my old hobbies were. I tell her comic books and more video games. She frowns and says I should buy a new chiller so I can brew again. Whatever you say, dear!

Video games, shooting, fishing, wood carving, working on my jeep and a few more that involve spending money on things I don't need and getting yelled at by SWMBO. Good luck!

Oh, wow. My old hobbies aren't nearly as good as I'd like them to have been, if I can get "brewing" as a tame one!

I guess I can talk about going SCUBA diving in Bonaire, and see if when I get "that look" I can just suggest 50 pounds of two-row instead. That might be a winner.

Lucky you, I've wanted to scuba dive for years now, sky diving was super fun also but too expensive for me now ha. Do you grow your 2 row?

Nicely played Todd!

I don't have too many 'old' hobbies except for one I guess. When I was a kid I used to build and launch model rockets. I had a vacant field behind my house and could just do it whenever. It was a lot of fun. Now that I have a son I was thinking he would get a kick out of it and I'd get to play with them again too.

My old hobbies were drinking with the boys and chasing women.
Since becoming divorced I've tried taking that up again.
With a seven year old daughter, I get more chances at drinking with the guys than chasing women.
Since it's over 20 years since I used to do this, the single attractive women are harder to find too.

Shooting, reloading, cars, archery and muzzle loaders are fun though. I'm more into antique guns than before now.

Lets see here. When I was younger I played hockey for some local teams here in my town. I played paintball on a national semi-pro team. I enjoy working on my car. Camping in the woods, and hanging with the guys.

Anything to do with models.. no, not chicks eventhough they were constantly in my dreams but putting things together.. that led to rockets and R/C everything.. still have my planes, cars and a boat (swamp buggy).. I wanted to get a helicopter when they were becoming popular but they were not cheap and girls definitely became priority..

Building an experimental airplane, flying, semi-professional chess, girls to do the dishes, motorcycling... no wait, that's transportation for me, not a hobby. Spreadsheet calculations for ridiculous things, girls to clean up my room, photography, guitars and recording, autocross, girls to do the laundry, and going to school. I love learning new stuff.

Jumping out of airplanes and helicopters. One day I'll get around to it again.
