I ride a recumbent bike and enjoy playing the ukulele. I must have been a clown in a previous life.

Is anyone else drawn to odd or "fringe" hobbies?

I do development and recording on Zendrum, but many people here probably knew that already.

I build life sized elephant pinatas in my basement and drop them from tall buildings.

I also coach little league rugby.

So, Paul, when are you going to send me my "review copy" of a Zendrum?

I am in my mid 50s and I like to date women my own age.

I also collect old worthless cameras, especially Polaroids.

Amateur Paleontologist.

But only in winter months when water levels are low.

no really.

We do a whole family thing many times a year. camping and fossil hunting, researching, classifying, etc.

Stop yawning! We also play lots of games when we camp.

I collect stereoviews, sometimes into shortwave radio, and interested in commercial bankruptcy.

And I'm married and have twin daughters.

I inherited a bit of an antique collecter gene from my mom. She left me a treasure type chest (sadly with no treasure) and a low large barrel type table which I hope to turn into the center piece for a game room.

I also have a spotless solid metal pole-arm head I got myself at a garage sale when I was a teen (my mom was a garage sale fiend). It seems to be in too good condition to be old, but I don't know why a prop head would be solid metal?

I am also a bit of a war scholar but that applies to half the people here at BGG.

I collect punctuation marks (semicolons mostly), have settled on names for 512 of my 674 imaginary pet cats and have friendly relationships with two of my three other personalities (all but Rupert--he's crazy mean).

Also, I like old typewriters, cameras, slide rules, clocks, tools and such. And I keep a lengthy list of words and phrases I think would make excellent names for rock bands. My wife thinks I'm nuts, but I blame Rupert.

I recently have gotten back into rock collecting (nearly a mid-crisis thingy). I use to collect rocks in my youth and had a very large collection once-upon-a-time. Now I enjoy getting out in the back-country of Middle and East Tennessee and hunting for Gold, but not getting rich from it anytime soon.

Very interested in the whole Bigfoot mystery and planning a month long trip to Washington State to try to document a sighting using a good camera - this next coming spring. As it looks right now, I may be the only one going on this trip. My friends think that I am nuts and will become bear food.

I also enjoy fishing, but with a twist. I had the chance to go noodling last year (that's when you use only your bare hands and reach into a sunken box in order to fight hopefully a big catfish into the boat or onto the bank). I still get very nervious at times, because you just cannot be sure if its a catfish or a big-as* snapping turtle. I have seen what those turtles can do to bony little fingers.

I'm in a large fringe group along with 98% of others who indulge in the hobbies of "Eating, Drinking and Porn" ... I think we are entering the golden age in the niche of EDP.
