    Post Anyone have any strange hobbies? (preferably legal)

    When I'm not shooting people, I'm hitting them with a stick. I'm a member of a Medieval reenactment group called the Society for Creative Anachronism. There;s an event every weekend somewhere where we meet and set up authentic encampments and fight during the day and drink (sometimes too much) at night. It's a great deal of fun if you have any interest in the middle ages. Here's a pic of me at one this year in armor about to sweat my butt off. It's not the best pic but that's real scale armor I made myself. It protects really well. Heavy as a pig.http://www.ofoto.com/PhotoView.jsp?UV=379923140473_79780110203&U S=0&collid=37090110203&photoid=17090110203

    Anyone else?

    I used to collect football cards, back in my day. I got rookie Jerry Rice's, rookie Tim Brown', I got rookie anything.

    Right now my hobby is sitting up in the tree in front of my house, and throwing various fruits and vegetables at the passing cars at 10-12pm. I also have painted cones metallic black, and put them on the corner of a busy street. Me and a few buddies have a blast doing that. It's funny as hell when the people get out and throw the cones around.

    As soon as I saw this topic, I already had the SCA in mind. However unlike Load Sm5, I don't fight. I build things. And do research. So far me most recent building spree has been yurts, or ghers (same thing) sturdy, roomy mongolian-russian tents.

    Load SM5, did you get to Pennsic this year? (Ok, I looked at the picture, I guess you did.. That is pennsic, right?) My pennsic picture, which earned me the title of "Amish Hugh Hefner" is http://www.stnelson.com/images/shaun.jpg
    My yurt is the back left. My first.

    There IS a difference between a hobby and vandalism!

    Myself, I like to restore old firearms. WW1 to WW2 military arms in particular. Right now I'm "saving" a 1917 manufactured Luger.

    Unhappy

    Forgive me for being a wet blanket.. but this was a good example of a good topic turned stupid... and quickly.

    I don't think the majority of what was posted here was a HOBBY.. pranks, mischief, stupidity, sure.. hobby, NO.

    Come on guys. Load SM5 was serious, but only got a serious load of ...... well, you know. This is disappointing.

    No, that was War of the Lillies. I've never made Pennsic. Not sure if I want to.
    Nice pic Hef.

    And Shartley, I realize now that I left this pretty much open to interpretation. My mistake. Everyone has a strange definition of "Hobby"

    I was thinner and younger, then

    Why wouldn't you want to go to Pennsic? It's just after the IAO, and right next door... I normally only go for the first week, and set stuff up and do the land-agent thing. I really can't deal with that many people in general.

    How many other people are members in SCA here?

    Cool

    Long range varmint shooting is my serious pastime, however, I once went to play with the SeaBees to blow up a "runway".

    After watching them play, I got to help them make the all time mother of a cratering charge. (A cratering charge is a shaped charge designed to bore a 10-15' hole into the ground during the explosion, effectively destroying any integrity of the soil for 30' around. 2-3 of these will cut a runway or road and require a huge effort to repair).

    Well, after the dust and rocks quit raining down, it turns out we (I!) blew it to 53', tapped a spring and registered with the seismographs in San Jose Ca., about 150 miles north Oh lordy lordy that was cool!

    Now, only if I could make THAT a hobby

    I am an information junkie. I spend hours on the net looking up idea about anything. I love to do research. I also could sit and play computer games for hours. Diablo II is my alltime favorite with Deltaforce land warrior a close second.
    Then it is just raising the 4 kids and swimming in the pool. I love my life.

    Other than paintball I'm also big into Homebrewing and SCUBA diving.Why can't I have a cheap hobby like bird watching?

    At least the Homebrewing keeps the beer tab down.
