Rather odd article from a website called The Art of Manliness (logo: handlebar moustache, so I approve of that bit at least). I daresay most if not all of these could be enjoyed by women too, so I thought this had the makings of an LJ meme.

Bold the hobbies that you regularly take part in and italicise the ones you’ve tried at least once as an adult. Ones that you do as part of your job, or did as a child, don't count. It also doesn't count if you did the activity as a chore rather than as a hobby to be enjoyed.


Copy and repost on your own journals, or just comment here. This might be a way of finding someone else who shares a hobby with you but never posts about it because they didn't think anyone else would be interested.

Love this list! (gold prospecting - really?! and not just the fake prospecting you can do at Legoland?)

Especially your own additions.

I have to say I often ask people their hobbies and "NFL Draft Prediction" doesn't come up very often :D

Well I thought since one of the most read Livejournals is grrm (George R.R. Martin), and he does that hobby too, it was important enough to add to the list!
