[OT] The Ultimate List of Hobbies for Men

alorona
I found it mildly gratifying that our hobby is listed at #2 of these 75:


https://www.artofmanliness.com/2016/01/25/the-ultimate-list-of-hobbies-for-men-75-ideas-for-your-free-time/ 
Certainly, climbing a tower, sticking your hands into the HV compartment of an amplifier, or emergency communication under adverse conditions would require a modicum of manliness.

(Begging the pardon of the ladies among us.)

Yes, but what is Parkour doing on a list of hobbies for 75+ year olds?

I am surprised at how few of these I have not done.  However, they don't
list XC skiing to which I was addicted for many years. Great way to get
outside when the weather is below zero.  Skiing uphill can be fun but
the best is skiing to work and back.

I also didn't see radio control models.

Still, this is a fun list.  I've done or am still active in thirteen of
the items on the list.

I managed a total of 8. Would be more if I was an outdoor/sporting person.

From what I've heard, Ham Radio and Model Railroads tend to be partners for
a lot of folks.

Good to see that Woodworking and Home Improvements are there. Shame there's
not a category for Ham Radio Home Brewing.

I note that lock-picking is ranked higher than BBQing.

Re: [OT] The Ultimate List of Hobbies for Men

Fred, it isn’t a list of hobbies for those over 75 years of age-it’s just a list of 75 hobbies that are considered to be “manly.”

I was pleased that ham radio ranked so high, but also surprised that computer programming was so far down the list.

In all, I am, or have been, involved with about 18 of these hobbies at one time in my life or another.  And the YL says that I need to get a hobby!

I missed that ... I have an excuse, I'm over 75. [:-)  But if it's for
all ages, why is Ham Radio #2 when so many of us hams are ... well ...
eligible for the Senior Discount?

Hate to rain on the parade, but nowhere in the article does it say that
the hobbies are ranked. It is just a list of hobbies, not a ranking.

Re: [OT] The Ultimate List of Hobbies for Men

David Bunte
Stan -

I think it is quite obvious that the list is not in rank order... or Ham
Radio would be #1... at least that is my view.

I think I maybe did 2 or possibly 3 of those listed.

However, Bunge jumping, Sky Diving and Alligator Wrestling were curiously
absent.

Apparently they haven't researched the cost of flight training lately. 
"Pilot lessons can run a couple thousand dollars..." It's closer to ten
thousand for a private pilot license.

I teach modern jive which is now far more popular than ballroom dancing
which I trained in in my 20's.  Now in my 70's this has a very healthy
following and is far easier to learn without private lessons.  I met both my
XYLs (40 years apart) at dance venues. Mostly popular with >40 year-olds.

I misread the title and thought it was hobbies for us men over 75 until
I saw parkour listed (which I couldn't have done even when I was younger
without falling on my face.  I have done over half of those activities
however.

Re: [OT] The Ultimate List of Hobbies for Men

In reply to this post by alorona
Great, old photos are worth as much as the texts themselves!

I consider myself a bit of a "hobby-defined individual" and I've
participated in 26 of these activities at some level, and a few others in
passing. But ham radio surpasses them all! I'm also still active in SCUBA
diving, flying, cycling, photography, and a few of the others.

I was surprised to see lock picking listed as a "hobby" since it can often
be quite illegal. But then I recalled some college classmates who got a big
kick out of it. Although it was certainly illegal, I never heard of anyone
being harmed or prosecuted. The student hackers just wanted to prove they
could do it and, as far as I knew, never stole or damaged anything along
the way.

Thanks for the pointer.
