    My favorite thing is riding motorcycles :!!) but I also like playing guitar, and pretty much playing any sport.

    Astronomy, scuba diving, aviation, rock climbing, driving on twisty roads, that sort of thing.

    I've only flown small, single-engine planes.. Cessnas and Pipers, etc. It's rare for me to even fly a variable-pitch aircraft, as they're just too darned expensive to rent.

    My flying experience is limited to video games.

    I've always wanted to buy a flight simulator but I would also have to get a joystick, and it all just seem too confusing.

    The real thing is so exiting, the 3 d experiance is awful, i would encourage any one to try it, and an instrument landing is just so just , you feel like a
    god when your airoplane is lined up with the center line after so many manoverse.

    I like to pretend that I don't know where anything goes in the kitchen; leave the toilet seat up at night; put empty food containers back in the fridge, watch "The Man Show" a lot....

    sounds very expensive. Rich people do have more fun I guess.

    same here, not so much video games lately. It used to happen a lot in my dreams, an utterly fantastic experience, in terms of some of the novel senses and emotions that were aroused.


    I would prefer to endeavor myself to solve some of the world's greatest mathematical problems, to give my life some extended purpose...but I've obviously smoked something recently, I'll shut up now.

    I like smoking weed and then doing stuff like listening to music. I also love street racing.

    I guess the things that give me greatest pleasure are playing with my kid and tracking my car. Oh, and watching F1 on TV.

    Car racing, scuba diving, gardening, music and animals.
