Help me choose a new hobby (88)

1 Name: Maredsous : 2006-04-29 07:07 ID:Wl7genXi

I just started to look at this site and decided this place might be a good place to ask a serious question with anonymity. I have a small problem. I'm 23 and my two main interests, video games and anime/manga, are started to become boring to me. After so much exposure, more than enough for a lifetime even, I think I should truly move on and look for something new.

I talked with some of my friends and a couple ideas sparked my interest. Here's a short list of ideas I have that I've liked so far:
Target shooting w/rifles
Archery
Beer brewing
Boxing

I've thrown out hobbies like photography and music(anything related) due to general apathy. I'd like something that would keep me somewhat active (why archery and boxing are there), but would like something that can be truly affected by changes that I can make (why rifles and beer brewing are there). I tend to like the idea of messing around with something to make it better, which is why I liked playing some cRPGs and some racing games with tuning. I like beer and wine, but I'm not exactly sure I'd want to suffer through the experimentation of making my own. Boxing sounds fun, but would be tough to find space for the stand and bag. Rifle shooting sounds like the best option, but I don't have the money for what I want yet (I liked the feel of the Ruger Mini-14 which is ~$600).

you could try cycling, you can explore your local area and enjoy nature trails
You could also get into solving puzzles or reading because you can take those with you on your rides. Reading can expand your thoughts and experience, but only if you read the right books, ones that make you think and not only long fantasy series that are "good vs. bad".

Cool things I've dabbled in that I wish people had told me about earlier:

-Learning a language: not as hard as people say. Even if you only learn a little, it's guaranteed to come in super useful unless you're learning a dead language like Scottish or something. But that's cool too.

-Rhythm Games: a once-popular but now recovering field. There's a growing network of Dance machines in America and Europe and other Rhythm Games like beatmania or maimai are starting to make appearances too. A low entry barrier, high learning curve hobby with a lot of fantastic music to discover, though it helps if you are already into Japan or Korea.

-Board Games: not much to say here other than if you haven't closely examined boardgames before, there's a lot more to offer here than monopoly or cards against humanity. Look for a board game meet near your home and try out some nice tabletop games with a complexity designed for adults. A great way to pass the time.

-Blockchain: regardless of whether you believe in cryptocurrencies, there's a lot of cool solutions offered by blockchain technologies. Though part of my interest may be due to the fact it's still an emerging field as of this post.

Board games (27)

1 Name: Enthusiast : 2005-12-17 04:44 ID:nKmdLBba

When I was a kid, I played the standards like Monopoly(does anyone ever read all the mortgaging rules?), chess/checkers, or battleship. Then I got a PC and largely ignored them for a long time. I recently learned about Go and Settlers of Catan, and have had a lot of fun playing online. It's piqued my interest in board games again, and I've found several that look interesting but it's so hard to find someone to play with, especially for the quirky games like the ones from Cheapass Games.

I don't really like Monopoly as a "play seriously" game, because it depends too much on luck. And it's correct that deals and the psychological factor matter as well, but luck stands out too much sometimes. You can easily notice the 2-3 dice rolls that determine the outcome in about the mid to late phase, if you play some games with the same people.
It's still a fun game, though.

I recently came up with my own board game that combines bomberman and chess. 9x9 board, 16 blocks placed on B2, B4, B6, B8 (and so on through the D F and I files) representing walls that cannot be blown up, 27 capture pieces (representing the soft blocks that can be blown up) placed randomly on the board by the players beforehand, with paper tokens representing powerups placed underneath: movement powerup, bomb capacity powerup, and firepower powerup. Can be played 2-4 players. Each player has 3 pieces, two footbombers and one kingbomber. The footbombers can move two squares and can lay bombs, the kingbomber can move one square and can lay, kick, or throw bombs. Bombs are represented by black tokens. When a bomb is placed on the board, the player ends their play, and the bomb blows up after 3 plays (1 and a half turns). The objective is to take out the other character's kingbomber.

If I knew how to program, I would make an online playable version.

Different games can also allow different wall placements. The alternating rows of 4 is only to imitate the layout of the NES game.

I just realized the japanese sega saturn game Bomberman Wars is basically exactly like what I'm talking about except better in every way. Well. Damn.

5 plays instead of 3, more fair, allowing time to respond. Less crowded boards for more tactical movement. Armies of 5 with different strategies per piece and so forth. If I made this board game it would just be cloning this game I suppose.

ITT: What food made you sick/stomach pain, but it was worth it? (5)

1 Name: Anonymous Hobbyist : 2021-03-30 22:38 ID:xPA06vhE

I ate the Cinnabon Cheesecake at Cheesecake Factory, and it was definitely worth the thumbprint of shit that was in my underwear by the time I got home. The Fried Mac and Cheese was good too, but not enough to justify the pain on their own. I do have to say that it tasted more like regular cake than cheesecake, but cake tastes good, so there are no worries.

I made 40 garlic clove chicken once. I halved the recipe for 2 people, but kept the amount of garlic the same (so it'd be the equivalent of 80 clove garlic chicken). I was shitting constantly for 2 days straight and it smelled like burned rubber. I could taste the smoked garlic in my throat for days.

HAM Radio questions (1)

Hello, I just started getting into HAM Radio, and I wanted to know what would be a good radio to start off with. Should I just stay with a relatively low-powered handheld until I get at least General class certifications, or should I save myself the trouble of replacing the radio for a suitable one later and get one that can access Extra-class level frequencies now?

Guitar and Bass questions (17)

1 Name: Sen : 2007-08-30 20:08 ID:2qZ+F/Wt

Hey ya'll.
I've been playing guitar for about two years, but I am not very skilled at all. I need some fairly easy, but good sounding songs to learn.

And how much would a bass guitar cost? Would I need a seperate amp just for it? I have a good amp for my Electric.

8 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2007-11-13 16:28 ID:HgUswMyN

>>6
depending on how frail your hands are, bass can be very difficult

in my experience (started on guitar for a couple years, moved to bass a month ago) bass requires a lot more stamina in your tendons, and you'll have to practice religiously to build the strength necessary for extended play

and like >>7 says, playing right handed is not out of the question. I'm a lefty and I enjoy playing both ways, but I'm much more comfortable using my left for fretting and my right (always an 'automatic' operator) feels best for finger picking

9 Name: Ilikepie : 2008-04-16 19:15 ID:Hl1qlFoZ

>>3 "You can use the same amp."
I actually asked at my music store 'cause i'm thinking of buying a new bass guitar, but they said that it could ruin the amp O___o of course it could possibly be that they just wanted to sell another amp but I ain't taking any chances xDD

10 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2008-04-18 06:44 ID:KUpT4Hc2

Don't use an electric bass on a guitar amp. My advice is don't think it won't happen because it will. You'll ruin it.

11 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2008-05-06 20:54 ID:NaQKF/L2

You can use a electric bass on a guitar amp. just don't use it too loud, because THAT is what fucks up the amp. using your guitar amp for gigs and such is completly out of the question.

12 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2008-05-27 15:01 ID:XnQeCV5+

If you're buying a bass to begin learning how to play, I guess you could slightly wreck your guitar amp trying to find out whether you want to play it or not. After a few weeks, if you find that you like playing bass, I suggest that you invest in a bass amp. It's the frequency of the sound of the bass that ruins a guitar amp; volume affects this but is not the only factor. Just because you turn down the volume does not guarantee that the guitar amp will not be destroyed.

Incidentally, in buying a bass, I recommend a 4-sting passive, preferably secondhand as you are not yet sure whether you will pursue this hobby.

And for the record, learning how to play the bass is quite different from the guitar. The strings are thicker, the techniques (slapping, popping, tapping, etc.) are different, and plucking is different as well (and is not a very common technique).

13 Name: PK : 2008-05-29 03:13 ID:bDRipjeP

The best way I've improved was by listening to many different styles of music. For 4 years, I've played nothing but punk and some mainstream rock bands, and I had never really gotten better. It wasn't until I started listening to and playing blues, classic rock, and heavy metal that I got better, quicker.

Although learning these songs may help improve your technique, looking into learning scales, chords, and basic music theory is very important. Out of these, I'm most knowledgeable on learning scales (my failure as a rhythm player is due to my lack of knowledge on more complex chords and most music theory). Start with the minor pentatonic scale (http://www.jamcenter.com/minorpentatonic.html). There are a number of sites that provide lessons on becoming more familiar with this scale (http://www.worldguitar.com/warmup2.html). Once you know the scale through the fretboard (not necessarily mastered), you can start learning to improvise. This takes a lot of time and practice. The best way I learned to do this was by listening to a lot of blues musicians (I listened to a lot of B.B. King, Hendrix, and Stevie Ray Vaughan) and learning guitar licks. I use these licks in my playing, but I eventually learned to create my own which would eventually shape my own style of playing. These things will sort of come naturally to you once you get started on it. Also, don't be afraid to jam with other guitar players. I learned a lot from a man who I met and jammed with at Guitar Center. He was one of my main inspirations for playing the blues.

Explore the Jam Center website. It has a lot of free lessons that you can use.

If you decide to learn bass, get ready for lots of painful blisters on your fingertips if you get serious. They hurt like crazy, but they're the fastest way to get calluses, which make your fingers more resistant to blisters and pain.

There are few solitary late night hobbies more accessible and humbling than watching the heavens.

The newbie can take his time to learn the constellations and positions of the stars with only a free printed map and his hand to take accurate measurements.

There was a field trip on the Friday before last to a local observatory. We briefly observed Saturn through a refractor, but it was awfully hurried due to the crowd so I didn't get an especially good look or get to ask any questions about the equipment. Saturn's rings will be approaching maximum tilt for the next year, so they were declined by what I would estimate is 40 degrees. The seeing was total garbage: Saturn wavered and shimmered in the atmosphere, blurring the image substantially. The magnification was somewhere north of 200x

Last week featured several clear nights, but sessions were short and limited to confirming the observations of the week prior. Megrez has still not been spotted, and is likely too dim to compete with nearby light pollution.

Sorry, friend. I haven't stopped observing but I have been very lazy about keeping logs.

With binoculars I was able to split some easy doubles, make out some Galilean satellites and Titan near the oblong blob of Saturn, but found the weight of my rugged 10x50s cumbersome without a tripod.

Researching tripods and mounts brought me instead to purchase an Astronomers Without Borders OneSky reflector telescope. The light gathering power is more than 4x what my binoculars are capable of, and the included kellner eye pieces granted me either 25x or 65x magnification.

By the time I received the scope Jupiter was gone from the evening sky. Mars needs more magnification than 65x to begin seeing surface details, but Saturn's rings are distinct at even 25x and banding of the planet's clouds is apparent at 65x. I've ordered a TMB clone from China that should excel at planetary observation, though whether the 200x magnification will cooperate with the scope's optics and local seeing conditions is yet to be seen.

I received the planetary eyepiece and an "upgraded" finder this weekend. Briefly took the new stuff out and found that I'm not a tremendous fan of the Celestron Starpointer Pro. Using circles instead of a dot allows me to see the target, but head placement means the view varies. I'm on the fence about returning it and going back to a red dot finder.

The seeing wasn't very good, and Mars is too far away, but I do appreciate the 3 fold magnification of the new eyepiece. It's very rugged so I had to increase the altitude tension on my mount. The eye relief is also quite a bit shorter than what I expected. Looking forward to clear fall nights with an attempt to view Jupiter around October 15th.

I'm also hoping to split Sirius this winter, and hoping the planetary eyepiece will help. Sirius B is only magnitude 11, so I'll probably hafta travel to a darker sky site.

Astronomy would be a lot easier if you could do it from inside. Many nights it gets too cold to go out and gaze at the stars, especially during winter. That makes Percival Lowell a sad panda.

It isn't too bad if you're well prepared. I usually start by picking out 5-10 targets that'll be high enough in the sky at whatever time I plan to go out. Since I snowboard, I have enough kit in the form of wool socks, thermal underwear, and gloves that allow finer dexterity than most. Definitely doable for an hour or so

Checked out the super moon this past Sunday. The actual full moon was Monday, but lunar features are more pronounced when there's some shadowing. The ridges on the western limb near the terminator were majestic, though the seeing was at best 3/5.

I really need a moon filter. It was so bright in my eyepiece that light was still washed out in my observing eye even when I went back inside!

Hunting the Undead (52)

1 Name: Enthusiast : 2006-02-21 06:25 ID:bVr+CheO

Hello all, my hobby is fighting the undead. The undead includes but is not limited to:

Vampires
Zombies
Ghouls
Ghosts
Underworld gods
and those that serve the undead.

Most people have their own little way of fighting the undead. Some people use magic, others use a special amulet or even the power of the sun.

Me I usually use assault rifles(I prefer the AR 15), chainsaws, longswords and spirit cards that I obtain through negotiation with demons(usually NOT undead).

Chemistry (7)

1 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2016-01-29 11:55 ID:8G7cr9zd

Any of yall into chemistry? I've been thinking about picking up chemistry and electronics as a hobby. The only problem I have is that I neither have much room for a lab nor would I have the possibility of installing a decent fume hood. Do you have suggestions?

2 Name: chemist : 2016-02-18 13:27 ID:LgoHcVp3

It would be cool if somebody wrote a program that could simulate all the chemical reactions so they can performed in (virtual) safety without the worry of blowing yourself up or poisoning yourself. If you mixed cesium hydroxide with hydrofluoric acid in reality you might get yourself killed.

3 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2016-02-27 16:11 ID:f+2+yXQw

There are hackerspaces almost everywhere around europe and in the US, if you decide to get into electronics i can really recommend atleast checking it out when you decide to build something. I sacrificed some space at home for such things but also have access to a lab in a university if i need some more advanced stuff.

4 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2016-03-03 23:12 ID:8G7cr9zd

The safety and perhaps the financial concern are good arguments but I think it would be kinda dumb. Apart form not gaining anything physical from it, we can only go so far with it. After all, we have to explore the science IRL first to implement it into the program and furthermore aren't there many variables to real chemistry like purity of the substance, quality of the tools etc?

5 Name: chemist : 2016-03-12 15:05 ID:5krA2BAV

>>4
Well the simulator would obviously assume you are using the best tools and purest substances. Though you may be right about having to do it in real life to find out what would really happen. From what I heard if you mix ammonia with bleach it will give off chlorine gas, something that would be better done in a simulator than attempting in reality. Likewise with other chemical reactions that would produce toxic fumes or explosions. They can even make it so the simulator will tell you that "you have died" if you do something that would end up getting yourself killed.

what would one call a public-use chemistry lab? A makerspace?
I know the term is a generic catchall but I feel there should at least be an appropriate slang term for a chemistry-focused one

[Food] General Recipe Thread [Cooking] (4)

1 Name: Anonymous Hobbyist : 2021-03-15 02:34 ID:FVSD/xCO

On /req/ there was discussion of the need for a more general recipe thread than the old one merged from /food/, so I am creating one. Post any recipes you like here, easy or hard, simple or complex.

Let's start with a classic, Shakshuka.

Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons (45ml) extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling

  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced

  • 1 large red pepper (bell pepper for milder heat, or a hotter variety, such as red horned pepper, depending on your heat preference), stems, seeds, and ribs removed, thinly sliced

  • 1 fresh small hot chili (such as jalapeño, serrano, or Fresno), stems, seeds, and ribs removed, thinly sliced

  • 2 to 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

To round out the simple side of things, this is what I'm making today:

Slow-Cooker Pulled Pork

Ingredients
  • 3-4 pound pork roast, defrosted

  • 2 tsp coarse salt (1 tsp if using fine table salt)

  • Pepper to taste

Directions
  1. Put everything in a slow cooker or instant pot.

  2. Slow cook for 8 hours on low temperature or 4 hours on high. (The pork will release liquid and it won't burn.)
