The Weekend Hobby Thread

Yes, playing board games can be a hobby. However, if you are busy with your hobby at 5AM things may not go well.

A Monopoly game in Brussels turned bloody after an irritated man approached the players with a Japanese samurai sword.

Police said the fight erupted at around 5 a.m. on April 2 when a group of four people had been playing the popular board game on the sidewalk outside their home, local paper La Libre Belgique reported. The participants were loud enough to wake up their neighbors, a father and son, who came outside to ask the group to leave.

Things quickly became heated between the players and the father-son duo, resulting in the son bringing out a katana sword for "defense." After the men started physically fighting, the sword's scabbard got damaged, exposing the blade of his sword.

Welcome to The Weekend Hobby Thread. The inbox was light this week. So let's see what yours truly came up with.

Friendly reminder, leave the politics at the front door.


Everyone needs a hobby....... This looks like a fun project.


Do you need a new hobby, something you've never done before? 5 reasons you should pick up a new hobby

One of my favorite questions to ask people is, “What is your hobby?” The responses vary from, “what is a hobby?” to “playing on my phone,” to blank stares, to “who has time for a hobby?”

With the never-ending tasks, errands, emails and messages, it can seem daunting to add something else to your weekly routine. But as we continue to see a rise in mental health issues, now more than ever is the time to pick a hobby and make it a priority.

A 2009 study showed that more time spent on leisure activities was correlated with lower blood pressure, lower levels of depression and stress, and overall better psychological and physical functioning.

I don't need a new hobby. I just need time to do enjoy the ones I have.


Sparklers and a Porta-Potty. Seems like an unwise choice for a hobby.
