Complicated things are fun. I'm not into technological toys like smart phones and similar gadgets; my mobile phone sees very little use. It is more the complex systems and patterns that I find interesting. Some sort of artistic admiration about how everything is connected. I have no problems learning complicated rules of board games.
Some woman once said that I look like a farmer's boy the first time she saw me. She obviously had very sharp eyes, since it is true.
I do like more adventurous, action and mystery movies, often with a science fiction theme. Like "The Island", "Avatar" or "National Treasure". Or thought provoking ones like "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind".
I don't watch much TV currently. British humour like "The Office" or "Black Adder", or military history like "Band of Brothers". Sometimes I get stuck a whole evening in front of historical documentaries or animal and nature programs.
I only listen to music when driving or dancing. Elsewhere it disturbs my brain.
I enjoy boardgames with some economic build up like Race for the Galaxy, Lords of Waterdeep or Hawaii. Some cooperative games like Mansions of Madness or Arkham Horror is also fun. Every week is an on-going role playing campaign: Pathfinder or Traveller.
When hungry: sauerkraut and sausages, pickled herring, Mexican taco pie, spicy Indian chickpea stew. I don't have the English names for all my recipes.

a) Turn on the TV, watch some sports and fall asleep in front of it.
b) Go out and party all night, wake up in someone else's bed and have no memory where I am or who she is.
c) Discuss with my dog about our weekend plans. Then endlessly follow links on Wikipedia, interrupted by short bursts of gaming. Feed the cat.
d) Call my mother and talk for two hours. Then clean the kitchen and go to bed early.

My father was a feminist.
But not my mother.
My father wouldn't allow that. Definitely not! No way!
