How to answer questions like "what do you do as hobbies?" when I don't actually have any hobbies?

    I just say video games, regardless of how long ago it is I last played anything. It's always a safe bet 🙃

    "to be honest, I don't have anything people would consider a hobby. I work, and when I come home, I pull down my pants and watch some TV or play some video games"

    Do you any more context on where you're being asked this? Like during an interview process or in your social life?

    @Root Porn writing, sounds fun. Is yours published somewhere? I hope it's based on the intricacies of prototype-based inheritance, because that's my fetish.

    @ihatecomputers 😅
    Nope. Never published anything. It's too saucy.

    @Root Sometimes the world just isn't ready 🤔

    This reminds me of the movie Henry Fool...

    "It's a philosophy. A poetics. A politics, if you will. A literature of protest. A novel of ideas. A pornographic magazine of truly comic book proportions. It is, in the end, whatever the hell I want it to be. And when I'm through with it it's going to blow a hole this wide straight through the world's own idea of itself."

    @telephantasm To be honest most people don't accept the answer "programming"...

    "Programming is not a hobby. I'm asking you if you do anything fun like basketball or playing violin."

    @davidmaamoaix no nothing of the sort, I just code or play video games all night. My balls are quite sweaty by 10

    @davidmaamoaix that's not true.

    That's been pretty much my answer in every interview I've had:

    "Actually, my biggest hobby is programming, I love it so much that I made it my career".
