Default Outside of the GW Universe ...

What other hobbies do you guys have other than wargaming. I have found as I have gotten on in years that my ideas of the world have changed. When people would ask me where I was from I would tell them " I am from Ohio, there is only four things for us to do there. We work, we drink, we fuck, we fight ... we do those four things better than anyone else too." It has gotten me laid, drunk, and hit more than once. Never once got me a job though.

Now that I have quit drinking, I have found other things to spend my money on. I own an '08 Ultra Classic Harley and am in the process of building up another 98 Jeep Wrangler. I love Jeeps and they are a passion that my wife understands only a little bit more than my 40k habit. I guess you could kinda call me a back yard mechanic, but I fix nothing ... I make it better and only on my vehicles.

So there you have it, I enjoy working on my jeep and tooling on the Ultra. What do you guys do outside of the GW realm ... I mean ya gotta have something else to do right?

I prevent all Jezlad's videos of his encounters with Angolan prostitutes from spreading across the internet, it's a very busy job.

Just a joke.

Seriously though, some of my other hobbies include playing various brass musical instruments (including trumpet, trombone, cornet, tuba, sousaphone, euphonium... well, you get the picture) though I've been slacking off there recently. I'm also a big martial arts fan and am currently doing Muay Thai. Obviously I'm also a fan of playing computer games so I spend quite a large chunk of my time in front of my pc.

The human appendix. Proof of a higher power. A divine kill switch so to speak.

No one really likes a smartass, but people tend to like a dumbass even less.

I enjoy spending some time on the Xbox, playing with my kids, working out (very occasionally), and I love to read sci-fi and fantasy novels. When I am not doing that I like to write my own stories, or on the opposite side of the spectrum I love to go to the shooting range. I kinda have interests all over the place.

I ski, play sports, work out and play xbox.

The Website kept telling me that my profile was only 80% complete without creating a signature. Ain't no website going to tell me I was a lazy shit, no sir.

Now I would be playing xbox, but I don't have one yet, .

Still, the PS2 keeps me occupied

Also, I write crap, and play football every wednesday.
