Not interested in the usual time-consuming pursuits like reading, watching movies and/or sit-coms, walking, exercising, swimming, or eating magic mushrooms before going to theme parks?
Are you ready for something different? Something unusual? Relax and go with the flow.
Feel free to burn a bowl of wacky weed or open a bottle of your favorite alcohol and kick back.
I'll start you off with a karma-like activity that may turn into a lasting relationship. See what it takes to befriend an insect in this video:

If you're still with me, you obviously have a sense of humor, so I have some more recommendations.
How about Extreme Ironing?
You could start a local endurance competition that may evolve into a new event for the International Iron Man challenges.
Or you could look up professionals who take ironing boards with them as they climb mountains, stopping to anchor the board on the side of a sheer cliff and then casually iron a piece of clothing.
Still another challenge is parachuting out of a plane with two other people holding an ironing board while you iron a shirt before opening your parachute.
Not your cup of tea?
Here's another idea. How about Soap Carving? It's easier than carving wood. Think of the possibilities. Modern art soap sculptures could sell for thousands of dollars. Or not.One of my favorites is Collecting Naval Fluff.
I didn't just make this up. People have been collecting naval fluff since 1984 when the hobby was first introduced in a Miami, Florida Senior Village housing complex.
The fluff is graded by color, with blues being the most valuable. See photo.
By now you may want to ask, "Hey Dave! What strain did you smoke before writing this?"
For the sake of transparency, it's Grease Monkey, and was the strain of the year in 2021.
Now where was I?
Oh yeah! Doing something different.
