Default What do you guys do for fun?

I seem to be consumed with my diy/biking. Any body else do anything noteworthy?

I meant hobbies not what you do for a living.

I don't really have any "hobbies".

I get hammered a lot.

Would that count as a "hobby"?

Really? I wouldn't have thought that. Do you ever get tired of Molson? Do you drink alone? Are you perfecting the craft of getting hammered? Have you figured out how you make it home at the end of the night?

Funetical:

I've actually been making my own homemade wine and beer for the past 30 years.

I have a magic fridge that dispenses my home made beer on tap, and it converts home made wine into home made champagne.





But, I stopped making wine about 10 years ago and I stopped making beer about 3 months ago. When I could make 5 gallons of wine for $40 and later 5 gallons of beer for $6, I'd make the beer in 10 gallon batches and I'd have plenty of it around all the time.

But, I found that it progressively started interfering with my sleep, so now I don't make it at all anymore.

But, 5 to 10 years ago, I'd have anywhere from 10 to 30 gallons of been in my apartment at any given time. A gallon of beer is 12 bottles, so that's anywhere from 120 to 360 bottles. And, I'd have put my home made beer up against that available from any commercial brewery in a taste test any day of the week, and I'd have won.

PS:
The stainless steel cylinders in the fridge are empty. I took those pictures tonight and I only put the cylinders in the fridge and connected them for the picture. If you can see, the pressure gauge on the CO2 cast iron cylinder behind the stainless steel cylinders reads 0 psig cuz it's empty too.
