I read stuff on the internet. Anything that grabs my attention, I'm not particular. I also enjoy reading comic books (primarily humorous ones), watching TV (mostly cartoons), watching movies, cooking, and shopping around for bargains on things pertaining to my other interests.
I do the same thing. I'll get a question in my head like "I wonder where the term "Cops" comes from". So I'll Google it. Then, that will start me on a vicious cycle of going from link to link reading various useless stuff
I like guns, so I go to the shooting range from time to time.
Also into comics, though I've pared down what I buy each month to save money. I only follow about 4 books.
I collect Transformers, but as I've stated before I collect only the ones that interest me. (E.G. no beast wars - loved the show, toys sucked)
I work on my arcade cabs from time to time.
You know, I've only shot a gun once in my life. I know that it can be a really expensive hobby. Ammunition can get costly.
i play slow pitch softball ,4 games a week, spring through fall, and tournaments every other weekend. i lift weights 3 or 4 times a week and with a wife and kids i have little time to game, but still enjoy that hobby as well when i find the time. starting to get into modding cars as well, but that looks like it will take a shitload of $$$ to get into.
I know what you mean about the family. I don't play as much as I'd like, but my daughter really enjoys the SNES, so we have been playing a lot of Donkey Kong Country.
