Well, I just inherited a (supposedly) 40 gallon aquarium that was leaking a bit. I've had fish almost my whole life, so the teacher just gave me the tank, along with the filter, gravel, plant, and everything else along with some fish. Unfortunately, the leak was bigger than I thought so I had to totally remove the bottom glass and redo it. I won't be able to test it until Sunday, so cross your fingers! Anyway, I've always had fish tanks around my house and in my classrooms, or in my various offices throughout my life, so what's one more tank, huh? Oh, and the tank turned out to be a 30 gallon tank instead, but it's still big!

Anyway, it seems that I'm trying to fill my life with extra hobbies. Lately, I've taken up RC Airplanes. Been practicing on a GWS FMS flight simulator and looking to save a bit of my for a Hobbyzone Super Cub Trainer soon. Pretty cool stuff! I have an Estes ROG Flight trainer, that's really just a toy that's two channel, but it's still fun.

Add to that paintball, golf, playing video games, reading, writing and internet surfing, collecting baseball cards and comic books (I know, I've done it for years, though!) another hobby is all I need! So, what extra hobbies do you guys have?

eh, with no money and no way to get around, i dont do much. i used to skateboard a lot, play a lot of video games (FPS, RTS, need for speed, RPG, final fantasy), and i used to be big on legos. right now i want to go hunting, but probably wont happen this year. i love CARS!!!! mostly older muscle cars and some exotics, but im starting to like tuners more and more. i wish i had the mechanical know-how to work on em... i play guitar or bass occasionally but im not really into it. i spend most of my time messing with paintball stuff or listening to music. i would die without my tunes... i keep my stereo and/or my windows media player on at all times.

ok here we go. there's hunting, fishing, football, track, baseball, track, soccer, wrestling, woodburning, taking stuff apart, videogames, talking on the phone, listening to music, and gawking at older dodge chargers (lol). i'm a pretty busy guy. add homework including 3 advanced classes and you've got a kid that has his hands full.

Does staring at women count as a hobby?

I absolutely live and breath slalom skiing. Also really love golf, snowboarding, down hill skiing, wakesurfing, and snowmobiling. Basically just summed up my life except for school... and girls.

i enjoy calculating the odds that the hot chick in my stats class will date me.

but seriously, music is pretty much my life. i play trombone, guitar, and bass guitar. also, i used to be big into computers, but when technology started doubling in power every 18 months, i stopped keeping up with everything new. i still enjoy messing with technology, though.

as for paintball, i still play when i get a chance. poor college student with no car = no paintball. i've considered selling off most of my gear and buying a phantom or other pump to keep playing costs down, but i love my mag too much to do that. so i'm stuck until i scratch together enough to buy a phantom.

same here about the computer stuff. i refuse to buy a pre-built computer anymore... i almost decided to get a degree in computer maintenance, but i hate circuitry (half the classes are on circuitry for an associates degree...)

Boy, have you two have a lot to learn, hahahaha! Enjoy it now, because in a few years, you won't do anything RIGHT with girls....

Girls aren't a hobby, they're a full time job.

Ah, dang! Been so long since I messed around with girls, I totally forgot. You're right - girls are a hobby, women are work. Unfortunately, they turn into women pretty darn fast.

yeah, as soon as you hit college, the girls are gone (unless you go to one of the big party colleges!!) and im going to a community college, which means even less girls and even more women...

When I'm not busy testing aircraft for the aerospace program in Huston, I drive cattle part-time. But probably my favorite "hobby" would be surfing paintball forums so I can dump every spare penny I don't have in mods and upgrades. Oh yeah, and I custom fit lingerie on the Victoria's Secret runway models the night before each show. :dodgy: Other than that I'm pretty much an ordinary kind of guy.

My hobbies:

Paintball
Racing (Stockcars, F3's, Drag)
Auto Repair/Restoration
Photography
Video Games
Architecture Design
Card Collecting
Music (yes it can be a hobby...)
Art (drawing, sculpting, photography fits in too I suppose)
Reading
Biking
Motorcycles (soon)

So far, that's about it. I really like racing... and my heart lies in the automotive field, but photography shares that heart closely.

No, girls are a hobby. Women are the full time job.
Amen to that. I guess I can deal with the immaturity of my freshly 16 year old girlfriend because of how much I love her... but I sort of miss the maturity of my 18 year old ex. :( Funny how only a few years makes a huge difference.
