(I like distractions)   If you don't collect something as a hobby or otherwise, you will slowly go mental. Muhuhahahaha. Ha   ( divider line

Honestly, my favorite thing on the internet besides emoticons is the typing of "muhahahahahah", honestly.

I've been collecting LP's, Star Wars stuff, comics, and movies for years and I think it's made me a little more mental.
2002-09-09 09:51:27 PM

I collect anything skyscraper/skyline related. I also collect posts on skyscraper forums. I have a "wall of skylines" in my room, and beginning to have one in my dorm.

What's all this talk of going crazy if you don't have hobbies? What is a hobby, anyway?

Is a hobby just something you do a lot which you like? Because that's what I think it is and I can think of a lot of hobbies where the hobby won't necessarily prevent you from going mental.

Like, for example:

* Collecting magic 8 balls and then setting them all on your shelf with the "All signs point to yes" sign pointing out.

* Painstakingly rewriting all R.L. Stine 'Fear Street' novels backwards.

* Walking up to people, shaking their hand, and introducing yourself as the devil. Then, when they laugh, you hand them a business card which has your name and the word 'Devil' written below it. Then stealing their soul.

* Clapping your hands really, really hard in front of people's faces to wake them up.

See, these are all hobbies. But they don't prevent you from going mental.

Can I get a yay on this?
2002-09-09 10:03:41 PM  
But I am crazy and I DO collect things!

help me! aaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! w00t
2002-09-09 10:03:49 PM

2002-09-09 10:06:31 PM  
I wonder if collectiong porn counts. Cause if it doesn't I'm same.
2002-09-09 10:06:45 PM  
I've had so many hobbies and so many collections I can't even begin to sort them out. My weirdest collection is probably my Bad Joke collection. (Yes, on five by seven cards, with dates, cross-references and annotations.)
2002-09-09 10:06:51 PM  
rock and rocks.

2002-09-09 10:07:23 PM  
I like to collect Transformers. I'm probably criminally insane, though.
2002-09-09 10:09:24 PM

2002-09-09 10:09:44 PM  
I collect personalites.
2002-09-09 10:11:31 PM  
Who says you have to collect anything for a hobby? I took up flying after 9/11. After all, if a useless rag-head can do fly a jumbo jet into the WTC, so can I!

Wait a minute, that's not what I meant....
2002-09-09 10:11:54 PM  
I collect shot glasses (like a lot of folks)- though it will be interesting to try and take a shot out of each (I have over 60). Sanity/Sobriety is over rated.
2002-09-09 10:14:25 PM  
I collect radical political literature and memorabilia, both right and left. I'm a big hit at parties. Yep. Shoot me.
2002-09-09 10:15:13 PM  

I also collect refrigerator magnets.
2002-09-09 10:15:28 PM  
I'm a completionist. I tend only to collect things that I think a) are Super Keen, and b) that I can get a COMPLETE collection of. For instance, the entire run of Swamp Thing, written by Alan Moore, or all the records by The Specials, and their offshoot bands, and Mame32 roms. I am sane, honest I am...
2002-09-09 10:16:56 PM  
I used to collect free email addresses.
Now I collect name plates from places of employment. I'm up to 3 (all with my name on them) I just have to keep changing jobs and my collection will continue to grow.
2002-09-09 10:17:10 PM  
"Doctor, doctor, my wife says I'm crazy because I like sausages!"

"Don't be silly, there's nothing crazy about that. Why, I like sausages myself."

"Ooh, wonderful! Do you want to come round and see my collection?"
2002-09-09 10:19:34 PM  
I used to collect comic books, when I had money to blow on nothing in particular. I never had too much fun with them, though. Sure, they get read, but then they are cataloged, sealed up in a bag, and placed neatly into a box in the correct alphabetical and issue number order. It was BORING! I wasted I would wager at least $10000 on this hobby. I still have 3000 or so in my uncle's house since I have no storage space for them. I think collecting comics actually made me a little more mental.

I still appreciate a good comic book though, but now in trade paperback form. Soon, I will sell my collection, and then the only comics on my shelfs will be alan moore, frank miller, and neil gaiman trade paperbacks.

I used to "collect" Magic cards, too. That I enjoyed because I didn't worry about price, etc. I just used them to play the game.

Now my hobbies are all Internet-based, with the exception of music and sex. :-P. I think sex is what is keeping me from going mental. Everyone should have it has a hobby.
2002-09-09 10:20:41 PM  
Doctor-Doctor, you've got to help me. I . . I like waffles!
Well now, it's okay to like waffles. I like waffles, too.
Really! You should come to my house. I have trunkfuls and trunkfuls of them!
