What other hobbies consume your time?
« on: Sat, 08 June 2019, 16:43:26 »
Hey all, just curious what other activities you partake in aside from mechs in your free time?

I'm a two sport college athlete so that's what my free time is spent doing usually.

Video Games and 3D Modeling/Printing

The latter of the two can tie into the hobby pretty well, but I enjoy it as a standalone as well.

edit: it's hard, eqao. Just wanna get it done and out of the way. My final exam is much easier though because it isn't just random questions.

EQAO is a test that every student must take in grade 3, 6, 9 and 10 in Ontario. Its not fun, especially the math part.

EQAO has been a kick in the face because the questions are so difficult!

Playing video games, cooking, painting, working on the film script for the movie I'll never be able to make, working on the solo project game I'll never finish, and generally dream about what it would be like not to have to live paycheck to paycheck and how I'll never accomplish all the things I dream of being able to do.

I have a family, go to school full time and work two jobs. I gave up video games about a year ago and now my "hobby" is a small media business I started. It is a productive and fun way to make extra income. I really enjoy it.

It's not the site itself, It's about the BIG FISH.  Super-Pervs who pay for custom videos and -Used- paraphernalia / lingerie

I have hurd that given time, some couples will also offer AFK- services to ultra-wealthy patrons.

Depends on how desperate they are for cash.

If there were one hobby I'd love to have it would be travel, hands down. Just jet setting around to different countries sampling the foods, seeing the sites, and taking in the cultural ambiance. What a glorious and undeserved luxury it would be.

"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

I think every p00r person (Including TP) has imagined Travel to be this wonderous thing.

Tp4 has done alot of this , it is NOT fun.  EVERYTHING that involves Outside = Latency .


Let's say you want to see tibet.  for $100, you can buy all the top 20 + free documentaries on amazon.

Don't need to pack or wait at the slaughterhouse of an airport among other dirty (disease ridden) humans attempting to infect you with their c00ties.

You're @ home in pajamas, w/ watermelon in hand, Touring tibet in HD..


Now, REAL Tibet,  Tp4 has been twice.  A mountain of tourists.. Line up to see popular monasteries, ticket scalpers.  heroin dealers (religion is a phase, heroin has reached tibet). Eat crap-pily prepared food. Crappy transportation , bus-es with unclear unmarked bus-stops. It's pretty damn back watered.

You speak to the younger monks, they're actually pretty under-educated and naive. and then there's farm animals, nothing really interesting, they smell bad, and make noises.

The amount of walking just to get to sites. ridiculous ..


Travel I think needs to be done for young people a few times, but, seriously, it's never good no matter where you go, due to the inherent inefficiency in Payoff.


The same payoff is just as bad going to Paris, it's just like NYork, there's traffic.  Tiny portions of food,  but it basically taste like all other white people food, lots of salt and lots of grease.  This may just be restaurants in general but, meh..

The women are ALOT skinnier, I'll give them that, but not much prettier than our 'Murican natives.

More stuff that just consumes a bunch of money.

Besides keyboards, I'm generally interested in the customization of ones deskspace- cool lamps, desks, mic stands, mats, chairs, etc etc. But even going as far as complete decoration.


Depending on the time of year, I'm also obsessed with EDC stuff, safety/straight razor shaving, and (some) streetwear and sneakers.

I really can pick the most expensive hobbies.

Have to agree with you more specifically the deskspace. I really enjoy trying to make my desk look perfect, with what you said cool lamps etc.

AND, I also like various streetwear / sneakers. Oh, don't forget the KAWS and Bearbrick.

Got into the aquarium hobby about a year ago, and it's a ton of fun. Little bit cheaper than keyboards (at least until you get to the really big tanks), and some of my fish have plenty of personality. Only downside is that tanks take up a lot more space than keyboards, and I'm somewhat restricted on where I can put them -- have to choose places my cat can't get to!

Keebs certainly qualifies as an -autism- spectrum hobby,  but it seems GH is darker than previously thought.

Without a doubt people who are obsessed about keyboards have at least some mild form of autism, but with that comes meds, and with meds may come the need to keep dark spirits away.

Used to. Drugs have been helping.

Keebs certainly qualifies as an -autism- spectrum hobby,  but it seems GH is darker than previously thought.

Without a doubt people who are obsessed about keyboards have at least some mild form of autism, but with that comes meds, and with meds may come the need to keep dark spirits away.

Tp4 has denied for years, maintaining Tp4 is not sick,

Tp4 will research this further, but, Perhaps, Tp4 has been too busy obsessing to realize that he's got a problem with obsessing.

Perhaps this was obvious to everyone else ?

But, let's say Tp4 reads up on this , what would be the outcome of obsessing over the fact that one obsesses ??

TP4 gets stuck in an endless loop. Someone will need to perform a reboot.

When you obsess about something is that particular obsession eventually allayed?

Mmmmmmmmm... One could say, Tp4 is reasonable enough to set practical limits on obsession. For example, Tp4 COULD buy a $3000 spectrophotometer,  BUHhhhhh,  Tp4 settled for a $200 colorimeter (which Tp4 got on sale for $135).  So, preserved is the ability to analyze cost/benefit curves.

No problem! Yep, each one. It doesn't take all that long provided you have a somewhat decent soldering gun and solder remover.

Computers, video games, history, modifying/fixing things, listening to metal (I do this much less than I would like), firearms.

Keyboards, ironically, are a lot cheaper than firearms, so I'm saving some money lately.

Hardware, love fiddling with it, tinkering with it and getting stuff to work. I work with computers every day but I still don't mind helping people in my free time. I think I'm lucky in that regard. So this is probably my main hobby.

Gaming. I can go through massive dry spells where I don't play anything. And other times I'm swimming in games to play.
Like right now I've got: Escape from Tarkov, COD:MW & Star Wars: Fallen Order. - After I'm done with SW I've got the new Spider-Man game to purchase and play.

Other than that it's just spending time with wife and doggo's.

those are nice photos though, and if you do not mind a bit of manual everything, when on a budget, old lenses and adapters are pretty cheap and can give cool effects.

I've been writing a lot lately. Comedy scripts like I'm creating a tv pilot, but for no one.

Without a doubt people who are obsessed about keyboards have at least some mild form of autism, but with that comes meds, and with meds may come the need to keep dark spirits away.

I've been checked, I'm "clean".  Or the tester's reliance on the very communication skills affected by the condition meant we were talking about two different things as happens in many conversations about anything throughout my life.  My lack of apropriate emotional response was noted but because I don't (think/notice) how I create routine and have logic'd round anxiety I'm fine.


Other hobbies?  There's only ever one at a time.  I have barely used computer fans from the quest for silence that consumed me for a while, partially complete amp and DAC projects and headphones that haven't moved in years from my audiophile stage as well as keyboard stuff.  Currently building up a stash of bike parts - only got 1 bike but it has 8 wheels and 5 sets of handlebars...

Maybe my hobby is shopping?  Though there's a lot of research before any purchase so it's not impulsive/a problem.
