This is my first open thread and I’m hoping that it generates a little interest. What guilty pleasure do you have? Is there an activity you spend time or money pursuing that sometimes surprises even you? I think by most people’s definition I would qualify as dull. I play chess, read far too much and I am generally a very quiet person. However, I do have interests that I don’t normally share with others.
I will admit to being far too interested in the paranormal. Right now I subscribe to only 2 magazines: Mother Jones, and Fortean Times. Fortean Times is just about the most interesting magazine published.
My wife often says: You’re the smartest guy I know, and I can’t believe you like reading about Bigfoot and UFOs. Hey, it’s bubble gum for the brain, right? Right?? So, what are your guilty pleasures?
