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

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.

It is a ***** i would love to fly all the time ,three d is so much better than free way, i prefered the low wing cheroke as it gave some referance for landing, but i think i could land a bus if i was given half a chance.

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.

My flying experience is limited to video games.
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 guess the things that give me greatest pleasure are playing with my kid and tracking my car. Oh, and watching F1 on TV.

lifting weights, drawing, 3d modeling, reading satire, riding my bycicle (though they got stolen a month ago :frown: )
traveling the world (i mostly enjoy going to the museums, temples or important buildings everywhere and trying the native food) - my next trip is to thailand (should take place in two months).
and my best way to waste my time is just hanging around with my friends... watching funny movies or making them drink so that they'll do stupid things :biggrin:

oh, and discussing physics, and discovering how stuff works...

You race cars? That's very interesting. May I ask what sort of cars, and what series do you participate in? :smile:

I get no kick from cocaine.
Mere alcohol doesn't thrill me at all.
So tell me, why should it be true,
That I get a kick out of you?

My latest hobby is falling in love. I have a serious crush on about two dozen women lately.

In order:
1.Programming (to be specific game programming in c++, vb.net)
2.Building (like building remote controlled boats)
3.Science (especially electricity)
4.Piano composing (I just finished 2 more songs)
5.Robotics building, programming
6.Math formulas (Almost done with a couple)

I don't think that's normal for a 13 year old.
:frown: I must have a sad life. I must have read WAY too many textbooks in my life span.

I'm considering getting into bird watching. What equipment would you recommend, any starters tips? So many birds in my backyard, just thought that I might take advantage of this.
