What do you do when you're not at a computer?

Posted 02 September 2011 - 02:23 PM

Shocking title, I know. Some of us only get up to go to the bathroom and then it's right back on.

I'm just interested in what kind of (non-computer based) hobbies you all have. I've been trying to pick a hobby unrelated to my field for the sole purpose of getting away (sometimes you just need to). Unfortunately, I haven't had much success, but I thought "hey, there are some similarities between me and the DIC folk. Let me ask them!"

So here I am. I guess I should iterate that I am not actively asking for ideas. I just want to know what YOU guys do for your enjoyment when you want to get away from the computer.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

You can look at many of our profiles here and it will tell you our hobbies. I for one like to watch medieval or techie movies. But I know others here who like to scuba (Skyhawk133), grow out their hair and be a girly man (gabehabe) or be a sexi mexi (supersloth) or bitch about their moms.... I will stop that comment right there.

;)

Some of us keep fit:

Others run as klingons, others officiate weddings, work on cars, shoot guns, pound beers, and all sorts of fun stuff.

I would add masturbating furiously, except that's an activity I'm sure most involve a computer in.

What about the 10 seconds in which you transition from computer to computer?

When I'm not on the computer, I'm either studying, reading, watching tv, or hanging out with my friends.

If I'm not at my computer you say?

Hmmm... I guess then I use my tablet. Or failing that I suppose my smartphone.

I'd like to say I was kidding, but I'm currently in bed typing this into my phone on tapatalk... So...

I play video games on my 360, read fantasy novels, watch lots of films, hang out with my mates when I can, and although I haven't for years I am great at jigsaw puzzles.

I work and go to school. I have no time for other hobbies. Don't worry, working out is included in work, since I do it at my work's gym.
