Apart from women, drinking and smoking are there any other hobbies worth considering?

I suppose that, if you wanted the full house, you would have to chuck in gambling too but I just can't be arsed.

i love motorsport!! used to race karts years ago, proffessional ones that daddy bought me not ''renta-lawnmowers''


did it for 4 years, (pic is off a race from my last year in 2001 when i was 17) won lots of races and would love to still be doing it, but it all boils down to money..


also collect model cars, have hundreds of 1/43, lots of 1/24 and about shit loads of 1/18 (must be over a ton?)






My New Hobby is doing this

I build and race model racing cars. I like the notion that there's no liability, crash it, buy a new one and I go to races with a couple of spare cars, who needs F1 ...... lol










Still photography is also one of my new passions, albeit I'm still right smack in the middle of a steep learning curve.

One of my favourite shots ....

A proper investment provides you with an income and thats where its true value lies.
