Just a little interested in what everyone else does with their spare time, other than the obvious!
Paper quilling here. Im a newbie though. Other than that. I kill fish and corals especially sps
Baking & crafting.
Nice! I had to Google that and it was not what I was expecting. I don't know if I'd have the patience or attention to detail to do something like that. Any pics?
Play a little music
Very nice. My wife and I enjoy baking and found an insane recipe for chocolate chip cookies. All the regular ingredients, the only difference is how and when you add them.
I need that recipe please. Thsss my favorite cookie
Very nice! All of my family members are musically inclined; singing, guitar, piano, etc. Me... not so much, but I have my tanks so I'm happy
Electronics and coding! Arduino, Particle, web design...anything interesting enough to pose a challenge. Coincidentally, this "other" hobby benefits my reefing hobby in many ways.
Before reefing and California, I studied herpetology in Oklahoma with equal vigor. Lead field trips for local universities to increase understanding of ecological diversity.
Cool stuff! I still have to look at the keyboard when I type so I don't know if I'd make it very far in a computer based field. What aspects of that carry over into the reefing world?
Repairing watches and old school pinball machines.
I was watching something on TV a while back and saw a bit about a club that required you own a watch that costed over half a million dollars to be in it. There were some pretty crazy watches. What is the most expensive/unique watch you've worked on? Pics?
I'm working on becoming a master smoker myself
Turns out its like the top link when you Google "the best chocolate chip cookie recipe". Here it is
We have found that the second batch of cookies is ALWAYS better than the first. We think it's from the dough sitting overnight in the fridge!
I'm not huge on chicken, but that looks awesome. My wife and I found a marinade recipe a while back that replaced white sugar with apple sauce. It turned out pretty dang good and it was a diet recipe! I don't know if it would work in a smoker though... are there dig differences between that and grilling?
I would not dare work on anything thats worth over a thousand. I own old zodiac sea wolfs and longines watches that are vintage well into the thousand area. I have over two hundred watches. Parts are so hard to get for the high end watches.
To the OP
Yea paper quilling is pretty awesome if one got the time and talent. There are some amazing works on the web that will blow your mind. Im working on something right now, ill post a pic when it's completed.
Wow. I'm sure it's hard decide where your money goes, tank or more watches! Seeing how some of those watches operated, I would hesitate to work on one period!
Ha, I know how you feel. When I first started coding, it was like looking at quantum mechanics theory. I've built my own LED fixture and dosing pump, for starts!
I look forward to seeing it! My sister makes little plastic foods (I'm sure I just slaughtered the description of what she does). Anyway, it's another minute detail hobby that I don't understand how people do!
