At this point, I am considering getting a mod to shut this thread down because only 2% of the posters actually take this seriously.

have you tried turning it off and on again?

My name is David. I enjoy playing video games (PC or Nintendo, primarily), listening to audiobooks and/or music, playing “Designer” board games, and watching TV shows or movies. My genre of choice is usually escapist fantasy/sci-fi adventure.

Teaching my daughter new things and discovering what she is learning from me or on her own also makes me happy.

Sure thing.

btw, “Designer” board games refers to board games whose game designer’s name is often printed on the box. Basically hobbyist games rather than mass market. I like playing Pandemic, Ticket to Ride, Takenoko, and Star Realms; but I hate playing Monopoly and am wholly disinterested in Phase 10.

I never get the recognition I deserve.

Nice to meet you, Zander. Not many will be forthcoming about who they are (yhwx is actually Bruce Wayne). But it’s all in good humor.

When I’m not online, I enjoy used book stores, traveling, eating, thinking deep thoughts.

With the crime rate down, I’ve been able to indulge in my lifelong love of Star Wars. I haven’t really done any crimefighting since 2005.

Not enough things make me happy offline, and nowhere near as many as used to either.

I am Tobar. I seek to crush my enemies. See them driven before me. And to hear the lamentations of their women.

Yes, we know that you are always on the lookout for the pasty white males with the green hair.

Walking the dog and and playing with her in the snow 👍

^ not my picture - but the image sums it up; a very content dog - who’ll require a good long content sleep after all the excitement of rolling and playing fetch around in snow.

As has been the case since I was a child, motorcycles are my passion, my escape. It is a rare day when I’m not on one. I enjoy all types: day rides, short runs, bike nights, charity rides, etc. However, a favorite type of ride for me, possibly my most favorite, is long-range touring/camping. This was a particularly cold one not long ago. Hard to tell, but the ground still had frost.

I love reading fanfiction, actual books, watching movies/tvshows and being with my family.

My name is Dylan Valenti! I’m a (student) filmmaker and it’s stressful working in this industry right now but I honestly wouldn’t trade it for anything. Filmmaking makes me so happy and I hope I can turn it into a successful career one day!

I like to watch movies and TV series. I’m a pretty good cook. I like kayaking and bike riding. I like to make all sorts of things. I like craft beer and bourbon. We have two cats, Ezra and Sabine. I’ve lived all over. I play the saxophone and a few other instruments. I ran a half marathon just before the pandemic, but now I’ve gained weight during quarantine. I read lots of sci-fi.

Your cats are called Ezra and Sabine… love it!

I’m a big film fan too. I occasionally write screenplays in my spare time and may go into a writing career one day if I become very good at it, but right now I’m mostly interested in film studies and reviews. I play piano, drumkit, and I’m a percussionist in several brass bands. I also like painting whenever I actually get round to doing it. I’m also into railway photography and really enjoy cinema trips, two things I’ll have to get back to after the pandemic.

One of the biggest things that makes me happy is listening to music! I’m a fan of different artists in different genres, like New Order, Bruce Springsteen, Courtney Barnett, Grimes and Philip Glass. Loads of star wars soundtracks thrown into the mix as well, of course.

Hello, I’m Victor,

last year I graduated from school and started studying math, which is fun at times, but took some time getting used to.
Because of the pandemic I study from home and haven’t even been to my doctor unviversity yet 😄
And honestly I don’t mind as I’m rather uncomfortable around people and don’t like traveling with the bus or train, when I’m on my own. Apart from that the pandemic actually impacted my life in a rather beautiful way. Let me explain. Because of COVID our last term was cut short and because of that my group of friends started a WhatsApp group to stay in touch and this was actually the first time I started sharing my WhatsApp (because I was stupid to not do this before and wanted to be “edgy”, idk).
And for a short period of time (till the lockdown hit) I started meeting my friends outside school, which was nice for a change.
Now for what I like to do offline: I like Movies, but TV shows not so much.
I like to play board games, I like sports (although I haven’t got the slightest bit of talent for anything and can only run), skying in particular, as this is something I am actually a little talented. (very slightly talented 😄) Generally I like to think about thinks, anything really and how to change things and what possibilities there are, but am rather unenthusiastic about actually following through with my plans.
For example I love Skyrim and enjoy thinking about how to mod the game and build a certain character, but I don’t actually play the game that much.
That actually one of my biggest weaknesses I think, I am prone to make up my mind beforehand and lose any interest in doing whatever is in question, out of a lack of curiosity or a fear that it might not meet my expectations. Another big weakness of mine is that I am bad at communicating, I oftentimes am really fast to understand where somebodies mind is at, especially with my father. On a regular basis I know exactly what he wants to say before he even opens his mouth.
But I am getting off track.
I like music and play a little piano. (badly, idk I always become real tense and crampy and play faster than I intend, until my wrist ache, is it just me or does that sound wrong…)
Apart from some exceptions I don’t really like video games, might have to do with me being stingy when it comes to video games. I am rather stingy in general, I don’t often buy stuff. I like it when people talk with me instead of talking at me, because otherwise most talks die quick, ups.
Oh, I like to sleep in and stay up late and be alone in the kitchen. That’s what I am doing right now 😛 I like how everything is calm and quite then, makes me think and forget about time.

Well that is me, I think.
I might have forgot about some things, maybe I’ll add them in the future, till then don’t forget to eat, future me 😛
