What's your guilty pleasure?

Just curious what entertains other bikers that maybe that think shouldn't entertain them.

As a former wannabe police officer and current wannabe good guy with an attitude, I really enjoy watching videos of guys out running police.

I think it's weird that I find it so entertaining, since I am so against it. Weird me, I guess.

So, what's yours?

Let's see...watching other people build stuff instead of working on stuff myself. In the same vein, watching time lapse videos of swimming pools being constructed is kinda mesmerizing. Lastly, I'm a big fan of stupid criminal videos or "good guy with a gun" videos. I like it when the bad guys lose.

None of these are really guilty pleasures, per se, but they waste huge amounts of time.

Oh and cyst popping videos. So gross, but...

Singing at the top of my lungs to Bitch Better Have my Money by Rihanna.

To put that into context, I'm 42, do viking reenactment fighting (axes, swords and shields), I help arrange a local heavy metal festival, and I have a pretty big beard.

That and Pinot Noir.

Not at the same time. At least not yet. Hmmm.... *rubs beard*

Definitely one of my Guilty pleasures because I don't tell my wife I stopped for ice cream. We have an old time drugstore on the other end of 35 miles of glorious roads that sells a double scoop bowl or cone for a total out the door price of $1.50! They also sell a 6 ounce cup of coke for a nickel!

Another guilty pleasure. Not coloring Oregon on my states ridden in map. Been there three different times, twice for two to three weeks. Once just up and down the coast for about three days.

Shoujo, seinen, jousei, and other genres of romance manga primarily. Some other genres as well, including horror and isekai, but mostly the more chill stuff.

Generally living my life and treating my body and bank account like I better be dead in the next decade or I am going to really, really regret it. But I just turned 30 last winter and keep saying it won’t be another 10 years of that...

Guilty pleasures? I have way too many, but the first I can think of?

* Really bad movies
* Bad reality shows...usually involving cryptozoology, dating/marriage "experiments," or ghost hunting.
* Riding my bike, at speed, between road humps while the cagers behind me have to slow down.

Unmitigated risk aversion is the new Puritanism; complete with witch hunts funny outfits and humorless preachers thundering doom. The Deity is Safety; Satan is a Lawyer; but the object is the same: to suck the life out of life and tell you how to live it.
