I mean, apart from discussing economic theory and reading philosophy. Hobbies are welcome, too.

I'll start it off- I have no fun.

If I had a cake and ate it, it can be concluded that I do not have it anymore. HHH

I suppose those music threads are work, huh?  cheeky

Beer, movies, tv, very occasionally a novel, hang out with people.  The usual.

You posted in Hashem's music thread!  And you said that you only read economics and philosophy for fun, and nothing else!

Well, yeah. I didn't think posting on the forums here was unexpected. I also vaguely remember reading Mises say this among the early portions of Human Action,

Truth is I thought it mattered. I thought that music ... mattered. But does it? Bollocks! Not compared to how people matter.

With regards to nothing else, I eat food and watch tv from time to time but I don't exactly call them fun.

I don't have much time for fun. However, I do play classical piano and I'm building a programming language on the side. YMMV

I actually violate the law of decreasing marginal utility, so I go with anything, really. And I just get happier and happier! :DDDDD

Actually: Play Guitar, Work on my Car, Ride Motorcycles, Play Video Games, Play Disc Golf,  Drink Beer, Play Trivia, Get Fat
