Strange Interests

I just love mechanical music.

To stand three feet in front of a 19th century Limonaire steam-driven fairground organ which is belting out Strauss` Radetsky March at full volume is my idea of heaven.

I will stand there until my ears bleed. Anyone else got an irrational interest in anything? :smiley: :smiley: :smiley:

Money…considering how much I get paid, I think this is pretty irrational :laughing: :laughing:

but seriously…too many to list although automotive/aeronautical design and development is probably top of the list - it even led me to university to get an engineering degree, fat lot of good that did :stuck_out_tongue: :unamused: :confused: :laughing:

ive got a VERY big thing about punk rock. not the sort that you may see on telly, but the really loud and fast “proper punk rock” that not a lot of peiple have ever heard. ive been into it since i was 12 years old(1979) and still buy the records, sorry CD"s now. ive even got some of my favourite bands names tattoo"d about my person! i know cliff warby would relate to my musical preferences, but we are a dying breed. i dont care though, i love it. loud and fast :smiley: :smiley:

Goth music, and trucks (Considering the industry I’m in, liking trucks HAS to be irrational :wink: )

I have a vast interest in ■■■■ :slight_smile::):slight_smile: my mates call me the ■■■■ king.

Might as well be honest but im in love with the female body :wink:.

I dont know if its classed as strange though or is it just normal?.

:unamused: :wink: :laughing: :laughing:

All sorts of fairground stuff for sale every month. There were dodgem cars, complete, for sale last month. I told my Emma that one would look good in our front garden as a feature. Strangely, she didn`t agree. :frowning: :frowning: :frowning:

I think most of my interests would likely be labelled irrational, if her indoors’s opinion is classified as general.

Shame, because apart from your two postings, this had been the kind of thread which shows that not all lorry drivers are morons…
