    Ditto, I work on radios and radio systems all day, I sure as heck don't want to do it at home.

    I have two cats, domestic short hairs, not very exotic.

    And I don't even own my own computer.

    Also none of the above.

    I have, however, noted a correlation between participation in what some would consider "extreme" sports and gun ownership. It's become a bit of a joke to us- usually when I have students finish a cave class Brian will give them the line "Congratulations, you're a cave diver. Now go buy a pistol."

    I'm in the none of the above category as well.
    We will be much better off when we learn to deal with things as they really are, instead of how we wish them to be!

    In order of NOT-interested:

    Reptiles

    Exotic birds

    Amateur radio

    Computer whatever

    When I was much younger I might have been interested in the radio and computer stuff.

    I fall under the computer thing. Work as a network engineer by day and play some PC games and read forums by night.

    Nothing on the list...

    I do enjoy kayaking and camping (although the tent thing has worn pretty thin in the last year or two)...now considering a 'small' travel trailer an SUV can pull...a step up from the tent thing.

    Weird. You pretty much missed the nail and smashed the heck out of my thumb with that one.

    Well, to be honest, I'm oddly enough with the majority who took the poll. I've learned alot being on the computer as much as I am. Survival pretty much, learned some code etc..... I know how to get by better than most. I have had an Iguana in the past, and I still have a blue and gold macaw named Duke. Matter of fact, he's saying night, night and good birdy and come here and hey Duke right now from down the hallway. I've held other peoples snake pets before, and always wanted one of my own, but the misses won't have any of that. I'm lucky she's put up with what she has so far the way I see it. I have a pair of lizard skin boots if that counts for anything. I"m an animal lover-dogs, cats, mules, horses, etc...... what's that got to do with anything?






    Any more questions?

    I have a ball python, but I wouldn't consider it exotic. As a matter of fact. It just kind of sits underneath a rock and I don't really pay attention to it.

    I guess I fall in the none of the above category, too.

    It's too bad that's not an option in your poll.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.
