Educational Youtube videosI recently picked up this hobby of watching pop education videos on youtube. History, science, technology, futurology, philosophy etc. It really passes the time. And a quick 10 minute tidbit is very relaxing.
singingRecently I have been learning to sing from YouTube videos. It's extremely satisfying to hit high notes and sing basic melodies right. The hobby is free to do and with only minimal practice you can get a lot out of it.
PhotographyRecently I've been getting into photography. I've found that after doing so, I perceive moments in different ways. Things simultaneously seem more transient, yet more permanent. It's a sensation that's difficult to describe, except to say that I am more 'aware' of the moments around me. For obvious reasons I have avoided urban areas, but in terms of landscapes and natural shots, it is quite peaceful.

Driving, drives, joyrides, carsDoes any of you, Wizards, enjoy a good night drive, roaming around the city and bonding with your automobile?
ParanormalAfter Reading Fingerprints of the Gods and Magicians of the Gods, I wonder if it’s possible the existence of an ancient and lost civilization like those books described. I know a couple of books who give more evidence of that. 2 books written by the Spanish investigator Javier Sierra, called: En busca de la edad de oro and La Ruta Prohibida, if you want to read them. But, the only book I know who gives a serious proof of that is Hamlet’s Mill. That makes me think if the civilization is cyclical and the event that erase a possible civilization could happen again to us. Just think about it.
HorrorAny one else have horror stuff as a hobby? Like collecting weird pictures, reading creepy stories, listening to paranormal podcasts and watching horror films? I find myself drawn to it and I think it counts as a hobby if it's something you're invested in. Sort of like a modern folklore.
Tabletop Rpg ThreadHas anyone read 5e's fucking Ravenloft?
Small things thats gives you some joy in lifeI honestly haven't put any effort in gardening this chili plant, I just placed the seeds in the pot with dirt and this how it turned out a few weeks later. It's pleasuring seeing it growing day by day and im looking forward eating the chilli once its red.
anyone making money off their hobbies?subject says it all. i want to make money doing something i love instead of being a wagecuck (don't we all?), but i have no idea how to monetize my art or my skills. some people might say "don't do it for the money" but i'd really want to get paid to do something actually worthwhile.
carnivorous plantsi'm looking forward to get one of those mainly for practical purpose (killing insects) but before i'd like to know if they're reliable as such or if it's just a myth. i heard the drosera species was the one that needed the less care and thus was perfect for beginners.
Movie threadThe last movie thread has reached the bump limit. Previous thread: >>54641
Fighting/Combat sports/ Martial artsAny other wizards into combat sports?
Interesting countries to visitAs the several traveling threads prove, there are plenty of wizards who are curious about the world. Here, we talk about our traveling wishes and interests in a more abstract and general sense. What countries have you visited? What were your experiences? What countries are you curious about visiting and why? Any particular place you'd avoid like the plague? It doesn't matter if your traveling ideas are realistic or not, just share what interests you.
Psychology and PsychiatryHere we don't primarily talk about our personal experiences (there's /dep/ for that) but post informative and educational videos and share interesting articles and/ or books about the topics.
Gardening ThreadThis year most of my plants (zucchinis, strawberries, cucumbers) got messed up with the heat waves, tomatoes are really the only thing I have left. I don't want summer to end, going back to eating store vegetables and fruit is soul crushing. Not much money so no fancy organic food.
/wizbrew/Got two batches of beer brewing. Both are wheat malt, hops and cherries. Using wild yeast from cherries, hopefully Sacchoromyces. Malted the wheat myself (sprouted then dried in sun) and got cherries from my own cherry tree. I expect them to be sour beers but I'm not sure tasting them so far.
Mathematics thread 2I liked the first math thread, but that hit the bump limit so I'm making another one.
French LanguageDo any other wizards have an interest in French language, history, and culture?
Consumption free hobbiesWhat are some hobbies that don't involve consuming anything? You purchase a 1 time item and very rarely if ever have to replace it. Learning yo-yo tricks would be a consumptionless hobby in this case. There are obviously thinks like whistling or playing the spoons too. The idea is it has to make as little foot print as possible while being something you can develop and grow at. Drawing wouldn't count because you need paper.
A very odd troll hobbyMy hobby is trolling and cyber stalking people. Does anyone else share this amazing interest. I understand it is a bit weird, but it's my only interest. I have 40+ instagram accounts larping as various females and males, to catfish my way into various random normies lives and gain followers. Every larp has a distinct personality and it's own internet friend group. I also do this on twitter, and facebook. Anyone else share the interest?
PodcastsHello Wizzies, what podcasts do you recommend? i enjoy going trekking while listening to some relaxing podcasts to distract me.
Miscellaneous Creative Output Crawl Thread Mk. I>What
/mg/ - Minimalism GeneralFor discussing software and hardware minimalism.
Coin Collecting (Numismastics)Let's have a thread on it! In the US at least, there's a lot of neat stuff to find even if you're not into it that much. For example, all quarters & dimes dated 1964 and earlier are made of 90% silver.
PC BuildingBeen wageslaving for a year and I managed to build my first half decent PC with some of the money I saved up. Any other anons enjoy this?
Wizard AnimatorsJust watched a Shawn Keller interview last night, and I have to say, he's quite possibly one of the most wizardly animators alive today.
Wizards' Dream LogI'm having so many dreams lately, if there's a time to start working on a dream journal again this is it. Let's make this a dreamlog where we can share and maybe comment on each others dreams/nightmares. The more you write down your dreams, the more you can retain and remember them.
tea threaddo any wizards like tea? specifically loose leaf teas? if so, any specific blends or varieties you like/recommend?
Weapons ThreadNew thread.
DocumentariesI was watching this random documentary about agriculture and it occurred to me that documentaries are really easy things to lose yourself into, so I thought about creating a thread to share and discuss any interesting documentary about anything that might be entertaining.
Cooking with depressionI keep eating ready meals which are starting to taste stale and I can't imagine the lack of nutrients and fresh ingredients being beneficial for my health. Also it's expensive.
Have you considered Satanism?I had gone to a Xian school and to church on and off as an adult. Somwhere during that time I was on this thing called Youtube and it led me to atheism. I eventually found my way to agnostcism, that we can't/don't know, an non-anthropic God entity, etc. I currently listen to the Xian street preachers and "feel drawn to the spirit". This is a spirit of fear, either of God or Satan. For clarity, I'm not dismissing that fear. Instead, it is what has led me to seek the LHP.
TV Television showsThis thread will be for discussing all television shows, series and miniseries
farming & agricultureBeen getting tired of depending on corporate America providing for me, I want to get into farming and gardening, saving my money and resources to eventually build a self sufficient farm so I can fully sequester myself from modern culture.
Writing ThreadRemember, anything from novels to lyrics are allowed to be posted and discussed.
Quantum ComputingD-Wave has been offering a free minute of quantum computation if you sign up with them. I've been playing around doing toy problems on it. This stuff really does amaze me. I've been playing around for juts the past couple weeks on one of these systems, and I believe the hype. What do you guys think about quantum computing?
Philosophy ThreadPrevious thread: >>25265
Digital Privacy ThreadThread dedicated to digital and internet privacy talk.
conspiracy theories/extremely abnormal philosophiesI now consider researching conspiracy theories to be a hobby of mine. Of course, as a hikki, this information is of literally no use to me whatsoever, and I do not have the charisma to "educate" others. It is simply a pastime.
SAKs, Multitools, Knives and EDCAny fellow enthusiasts here? I'm into wood carving and metal working stuff and like anything related to knives and multitools or EDC related stuff. I personally have a Victorinox Climber and a cheap chinese Multitool plier and that's enough for my uses. Also have a generic fixed blade knife that I learned to use for different stuff like wood carving, opening cans and other home stuff. I mostly use them at home when doing stuff in my garden
Cooking ThreadLet's discuss cooking!
Comfortable PicturesI contemplated on which board to post this and ultimately decided I'll do it on /hob/ this time, as it seems to me that collecting and enjoying pictures of houses, towns, areas, natural scenes etc., is in fact kind of a hobby.
Survivalism/PrepperAnybody into SHTF related hobbies? I started with prepper stuff the past year and it was quite helpful to be prepared before normgroids started panicking with the coronavirus. I'm reading a lot on the topic and trying to improve in different skills for when SHTF, if ever. Perhaps this doesn't sounds as a very wizardly hobby but I find survivalist stuff interesting and training different skills and improvisation helps me concentrating and not being devoured by my thoughts. I think it's good for wizards
Shortwave RadioDon't know if we've ever had thread even though it seems like a very wizardly hobby. I bought a really cheap tecsun but i could only get a couple channels, two spanish (cuban?) ones and some mainstream new channels. Not sure if spending more money would help or if I should try a different area. I've been told the hobby is completly dead but looking on reddit and forums it looks like there's still some activity
buying an armor to train inI know how silly this will seem to most of you but I want to work one-two years buy a replica medieval armor. I grew up with anime characters wearing armor in a post apocalyptic world(raoh,etc),I also really like weird ways of muscle training.
History ThreadLets talk history.
