"I know this is an old thread and it's possible that I've already replied to this many years ago, but this can just be an updated version.
I have several hobbies, and always on the lookout for more.
I've always been fascinated by…"
""One thing that I have learned is don't mix your hobby/passion with work, you'll end up hating them. I really loved drawing and I drew/designed for clients and they drain the hell out of you."
I second this. I used to make…"
"How do you guys find time for hobbies? I, for example, know what I like to do, but I never find time to do anything other than read and peruse AOM (which I include in the reading hobby). In the past few months I haven't done anything. I…"
"I read a lot about military history. I collect old plates which illustrate battle sites, armors and famous commanders.Also I study German in my free time. It is very delightful and gives a wide perspective about language itself."
"I have a few, but don't know if you would consider everything manly, but I think they are sort modern man hobbies :P
I enjoy crossfitting, collecting watches, collecting pomades, collecting dress shoes+polishing them. With all those things i…"
""Most" car repairs are removing bolts take the part out, put the new part in, replace the bolts. (Until you get inside the engine or transmission). Older cars are easier to work on. Start there. Buy an old Chevy…"
"I also have a lot of hobbies. I build elaborate sand castles at the beach on vacation. I made a 5 string banjo that I play clawhammer style. I carve wood, draw pencil portraits, roast green coffee beans, learned to pick locks, juggle. I'm…"
"I like to make functional items. So things like Hooks, or Handles for drawers, Bottle Openers, I've done a few knives and tomahawks. So a little bit of everything, it's great. Plus if I've had a bad day I can go out beat on some metal…"
I've been doing a variety of martial arts once or twice per week for the past 10ish years (give or take). I also read a lot (mostly online) about martial arts, their roots and origins, their inter-connectivity, how…"
"Hey, Chip. I had a class with a student, by the time I was done my 4 year old was out of school so had to pic him up and bring him home. Long story short, didn´t have time to get back to you. I´m sorry about that. I hope we can chat some…"
"I once asked a (male) friend if I could call him any time of day or night if going cold turkey on TV got me into depression. He told me later how much he was hoping I didn't choose the middle of the night... but he said sure. I…"
"Okay then, a good .22 is the way to go. In a bolt action look for a used Marlin 25, they had fantastic barrels. New bolt, check out the CZ rifles, not cheap, but not heartbreakers either. In a semi-auto, go with a Ruger 10-22, they run forever, and…"
Just as Sun Tzu’s “The Art of War,” has been applied to many different aspects of modern life; I believe there are many great lessons to be learned from all of the warriors and warrior societies, from SEALS to Samurais, and Spetsnaz to Spartans.
