I spend my free time on my foundation. Right now I'm collecting toys to give out on Halloween. We had 700 children last year. Everything was distributed within one hour. It was fun! Anyone want to work a table at our Halloween event?

Do you take Anarcho-captialism more seriously or is it more tongue-and-cheek?

It really depends
I would say a little of both
I like the sound of an ancap society, but I'm skeptical, so I don't like to put all of my eggs in one basket
I will say that the whole Paris agreement thing has given me a ton of ammunition to work with

Well yes
But mainly the fact that private corporations have decided to take up the mantle
It's kind of destroying the evil mega-corp motif and letting us actually talk about a world post big government

Findagrave.com

I hang out in cemeteries and document the grave sites. It helps people interested in genealogy and those who may be interested in finding their loved ones.

Go to the site and try to find a loved one who has died. It's pretty cool.

Are used to do a ton of machine embroidery. My husband put a bunch of stuff in front of my sewing machine I'm trying to get out so I can do it again. I like to make my own embroidery designs.

What kind of machine do you have? What size hoop?

TopsQueen Oregon Coast
06/12/17 5:40 pm

Brother ULT. I forget the exact size. It came with four of them. The teeny tiny one. I bought it used and also has the edge of one. Which machine do you have?

4JC Christian Pastors Wife
06/12/17 6:18 pm

Oh, yours is much more advanced than mine. I didn't have one with embroidery capability, and my old, 30 year machine went out on me.

My daughter's MIL was nice enough to give me hers, which she didn't use. It's a Brother Innov-is 900-D (meaning Disney). It only has a 4x4 hoop, and it's hard to find designs that small. I would LOVE to have one with at least an 8x8 hoop, so I could do quilt squares.

But right now, I've had to give all that up, as I don't have the money for supplies anymore, since the insurance doubled.

I had only been doing it about a year, and had learned how to do monograms on towels and had done some bibs, t-shirts, etc. I did Christmas designs on towels for all our kids for Christmas a couple of years ago. The supplies are just so expensive, and I couldn't buy enough, and go to enough classes, close enough together to remember what I'd learned.

Too many hobbies, too short of an attention span. Hard to pick a favorite other than the one I'm doing at the moment. Which for the next day or two is inventing an easy to use but reasonably robust way to keep Yogi out of the trash can. Metal work and welding, I guess.

I have many theoretical *interest* like languages and science, especially astronomy, but no particular active hobby except offline video games which isn't more interesting or original than saying you like watching TV.

I use to play with a neighbor in College. He helped us with car troubles and made sure we got home cooked meals. He taught me how to play. I loved it when he would call out nobs!

Criminal convicted by an honest but angry King.
"In morning make your last statement. If it's true you shall be hung. If it is a lie you shall be beheaded." Said the King. After a restless night, the criminal made a statement in the morning which made it impossible for the king to execute him. What did the criminal say?

My favorite hobby is Yu-Gi-Oh! card game. The objective the game is to get the opponent from 8000 life points to 0 life points. You can do this through monster attacks and damage. There is a catch. There are spell cards and trap cards which help you and hurt your opponent, respectively. There are also monster effects. It is actually a very complex game and there are game judges in tournaments to sort out any ruling issues.

Thanks for the share Izzy! I've never played it, but I played a lot of Magic! in high school. Do you go to tournaments then? How big is your collection? Do you create specialised decks? Have you played Magic?

Izzynius Independent
06/09/17 8:15 pm

I pretty much have two Yu-Gi-Oh! decks and a box of Yu-Gi-Oh! cards. I go to a card shop and play casually with friends. I did have a friend who taught me to play Magic two years ago. I played for a day or two during finals week after we finishes our finals. It was a Light angel deck. It was very good from what I could tell. After that I did not really get into Magic and we did not keep in contact.
