5 People So Blinded By Their Hobbies They Forgot To Live

Not everything we do needs to have this super-special, universe-altering purpose behind it, especially since the universe could give negative shits about what us sentient specks of space dust do with our brief love affair with consciousness. So go ahead, indulge in a pointless hobby or 10 — play the shit out of your video games, color all the adult coloring books, get that doctorate that everybody spits on because you weren’t born with 35 years’ experience. Just don’t let the pursuit of pointlessness consume your life to the point where actual important stuff goes forever ignored.

If you ever find yourself doing anything like the following, burn it all to the ground, hug your family, and apologize profusely for so coldly ignoring them all these years. If you don’t have a family, hug Mario and Luigi. They miss you too.

#5. Don’t Blow 40 Years And $2 Million Building A Giant Boat, Especially If You’re Landlocked

Dillon Griffith isn’t the first person to build his own boat. But while most content themselves with stitching together a pile of wood and praying to the Sky God that the Tuna God doesn’t whisk them away for a forced marriage to Aquaman, Griffith went and built himself a 64-foot, 40-ton, steel-and-electric monstrosity that he dubbed the “Mystic Rose.” It took him 38 years and cost roughly $2 million to complete.

Naturally, he did it to earn money.

Now we know who taught Axl Rose everything he knows about managing start-up costs.

He was inspired to build his own giant boat in 1977, after chartering his first, less-giant boat for fishing trips failed to earn him any money. After concluding this was because his galley was too small to allow for truly hardcore fishing, he set out to build his own, ginormous fishing boat. That way he could charter more people for more trips and make more sweet, sweet mackerel money.

Reminder: He spent $2 million to get there.

Unless somebody catches the Kraken, good luck breaking even before the next supercontinent forms.

He also took 38 years to finish, because Dillon Griffith is not a professional huge-boat maker. What’s more, he eventually moved away from the ocean and into a land-locked area, yet he continued to build his boat. That’s like moving to Death Valley and trying to build your own ice hockey rink. Oh, and the project damn near killed him, and not in the typical “oh, all this hard work is killing me” kind of way. No, more like a crane fell on him once and shattered his body. That kind of killing. Also, an 11-pound cylinder once broke his neck. After that, it was probably less a labor of love and more one of pure stubbornness. He saw a ship that steadfastly refused to be built, and he stared it right in the barnacle-encrusted porthole and said, “Fuck you, thou shalt be built.”

And build it he did — after nearly 40 years of lonesome, dawn-to-dawn work days, the ship is ready to sail. Finally, as Griffith says, he’ll “make money and [he] won’t have to worry anymore.”

Of course, there’s still the issue of getting the boat to sea, since he lives far away from it and all. He estimates it’ll cost an extra $55,000 to have it towed there, but then he’ll make money for sure! He’s set up a GoFundMe to cover these final costs, so feel free to help him if you like. He’s almost there; he just needs a little push over that finish line.

Well on his way!

#4. Don’t Waste Half A Century Building Your Own Helicopter Out Of Garbage

Like so many children of the pre-1950s (and post-2020s, after President McCarthy executive-orders all vaccines into the same dirty pit where we stashed those Atari ET games) a Honduran man known simply as Agustin contracted polio. He’s been unable to walk since.

Young Agustin dreamed of being a pilot, so he’s spent the past 50 years constructing a helicopter out of garbage. This despite knowing precisely dick about helicopters aside from “they exist.” And he insists his will fly, despite it never coming even once close to doing so. Ever bet 99 percent of your poker chips on what winds up being a 6 high? That’s this, in weird mutated sorta-copter form.

And this is insisting your 2-2-4-5 is a royal flush and the dealer’s just blind.

Agustin started this project in 1958, thinking it would take only three months because what’s a helicopter compared to a soap-box racer or a homemade turkey sandwich. So already we have a grown man cock-sure that he could build a working helicopter, single-handedly, with everything that Oscar The Grouch had grown sick of masturbating to, in three months. He missed that deadline by a mere 573 months, because, according to him, “Things kept getting complicated.” Big flying machines that typically require an entire crew to assemble do tend to be that way, yes.

Nothing should take 20 years to finish except raising a child. And writing The Winds Of Winter.

But still he perseveres, tinkering with his helicopter daily, all by himself. He gathers junk, trash, and spare parts wherever he can find them and assembles them all on his own — even the propeller’s chains are DIY. It’s neat, but it’s also Fallout 4: Saddest-Ever Edition. And I do mean he finds those parts wherever — for years, Agustin used an old, rickety wheelchair, until his friends and family bought him a shiny, new, working one, direct from the United States … which he immediately disassembled for helicopter parts.

Good parts.

If this were simply performance art, it’d be one thing. But Agustin still believes, and will likely keep believing until his final day, that his literal pile of garbage will get visited by the Blue Fairy one night and become a real helicopter. He outright admits that it “looks like a caricature of a helicopter” but somehow doesn’t grasp that that’s exactly why his only hope to fly is the same as ours: Board a plane, get drunk on boxed wine, and let someone who knows what they’re doing help him roam about the country.

#3. Don’t Spend 17 Years Building A Wooden Lamborghini In Your Basement

Hey, let’s watch 1/27th of a movie!

That’s the intro to Cannonball Run, and even non-carheads can see it’s awesome, as is the Lamborghini Countach Tara Buckman zooms around in. Ken Imhoff certainly agrees, but unlike us the film didn’t inspire him to drink shitloads of beer and fantasize about getting coldly laughed at by Buckman if he dared approach her. He was instead inspired to build his very own Countach. Out of wood. And not just some rinky-dink model for his mantel. He was going to build a life-size wooden Lamborghini, engine and all, and he was going to drive that motherfucker.

Maybe he drank shitloads of beer after all.

He can’t drive 55. Or 45. Or 35. Or 25. Or 5.

Like most people who don’t know what they’re doing but confidently stumble through it anyway, Imhoff figured his “Bull In The Basement” project wouldn’t take long — five years, tops. It took him 17, the literal length of childhood. That’s an appropriate analogy, by the by, since he missed much of his kids’ own childhoods while locked in his basement sanding, polishing, fucking up, redoing, sanding, and polishing again.

Wouldn’t want to enter the void with anything but a perfect shine, after all.

By 2007, his Treeborghini was finally finished and ready for unveiling. Except, he couldn’t get it out of his basement, since basements don’t have garage doors. So, Imhoff did the only logical thing he could: He paid a guy to cut a big hole in his basement, dig up a gnarly dirt ramp, and tow the car out of the basement and into the light. He would’ve driven it out — it theoretically being a car and all — but it’s a chunk of wood.

Good thing he brought those protective blankets. Wouldn’t want anything to get damaged
and plummet in value or anything.

He eventually powered it up enough to joyride around the block, bring his kids to school, and gather a few termites. But, after five years, Imhoff decided to sell. He claimed the maintenance was too much to handle; all that wood polish sets you back, but presumably he’d also love to recoup some of the “unimaginable [financial] extremes” his Cannonball Pratfall put him and his entire family through. At least we know he won’t try anything this dumb again.

Oh wait, no. He immediately started work on a wooden Studebaker Hawk. Check back with Cracked in about 20 years for an update.

San Bernardino office building reopens a month after mass shooting left 14 dead

The complex had been shut since 2 December when a couple burst into a holiday party and opened fire in the deadliest terror attack on US soil since 9/11

The Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino has reopened for the first time since last months massacre, allowing around 600 employees to return to work at the site.

After passing guards who checked identity cards, the workers were expected to gather in small groups to talk on Monday before resuming their duties serving 30,000 people with developmental disabilities in San Bernardino and Riverside counties.

The centre has been shut since 2 December, when Syed Rizwan Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, burst into a holiday luncheon in a conference room and opened fire, killing 14 people and wounding 20, in the deadliest terror attack in the US since 9/11.

The conference room remained shut authorities have not yet decided what to do with it but the rest of the campus, comprising two large red stone buildings, was open.

Crews have cleaned up broken glass and other debris from the attack and erected a chain-link fence around the complex. Professional counsellors were on site for any employees who felt in need of their services.

We have security guards at each entrance area. We continue to measure the security and we will continue to look at it, Lavinia Johnson, the centres executive director, told reporters outside the facility.

Today I will be spending time with my staff, my directors and my managers and have welcoming remarks for them. We have food inside the agency as well as counselling for those who are still not ready and still continuing the healing process. Most of us are relieved to be back at work. We want to continue with the normalcy, and we miss each other very much.

The World Way, a Christian ministry, set up a prayer tent near the entrance and provided coffee and breakfast bars. Later on Monday, Californias governor, Jerry Brown, was expected to attend a private memorial service for the victims in nearby Ontario.

San Bernardinos step towards normality came as prosecutors prepared the case against Enrique Marquez, a friend of Farook who purchased the guns used in the massacre. Marquez, who is being held without bail, is expected to enter a plea in an arraignment Wednesday at the US district court in Riverside.

Farook, 28, and Malik, 29, died in a gun battle with police a few miles away soon after the massacre. Investigators are still piecing together how Farook, a US citizen who was born in Chicago to Pakistani parents, and Malik, a Pakistani national, came to be radicalised. The couple allegedly pledged allegiance to the extremist group Islamic State.

Farook described by relatives and colleagues as a quiet, reserved and devout Muslim was a county environmental health inspector and had worked alongside the victims. He had left the holiday luncheon, part of a daylong training session, and returned with Malik, both wielding assault rifles and wearing masks and combat-style clothing.

The site remained frozen for weeks while investigators combed for evidence. A few employees visited during that time to retrieve personal belongings, but most stayed away.

Staff used laptops and iPads to access patient records through a web-based operating system, letting them work remotely and serve a community of children with autism, mentally disabled adults and other clients in what is a largely poor and working-class swath of California.

Staff were looking forward to reuniting, a centre spokesperson told the Associated Press.

With the two shooters dead, prosecutors have focused on Farooks friend, Marquez. Relatives and friends have expressed shock that a 24-year-old known for goofy humour, fixing old cars and enjoying beer could be implicated in an extremist plot.

Federal prosecutors have painted a different picture, saying that as Marquezs friendship with Farook grew, he converted to Islam, started attending a mosque in 2010 and became a wannabe terrorist.

Marquez allegedly made false statements in 2011 and 2012 when he bought two semiautomatic rifles for Farook, who feared he would not pass a background check. According to an affidavit, the two plotted attacks on the 91 Freeway in Corona and at Riverside City College in 2011 and 2012, but neither attack went ahead.

Marquez faces five charges, including supplying the weapons and smokeless powder contained in an explosive device found at the scene of the attack, plus marriage fraud. In 2014, he married Mariya Chernykh, a Russian national whose sister is married to Farooks older brother. Marquez faces up to 50 years in federal prison if convicted on all charges.

Anheuser-Busch InBev under EU investigation for potential antitrust violations

 (AP File Photo)

The European Union opened an investigation Thursday into global beer giant AB InBev to determine if it has abused its dominant position in Belgium by hindering cheaper imports of its products from neighboring countries.

EU officials said there are suspicions the company, based in Leuven, Belgium, may be pursuing a deliberate strategy to block imports of its beer from less expensive countries, including France and the Netherlands, to the pricier Belgian market.

“AB InBev’s strong position on the Belgian beer market is not a problem,” EU Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager said as she announced the probe. 

However, she said, “keeping out cheaper imports of its beer from neighboring countries would be both against the interests of consumers and anti-competitive.”

AB InBev spokesperson Korneel Warlop said the brewer “is fully cooperating with the European Commission.”

In an e-mail to the Associated Press, Warlop said, “It would not be appropriate for us to comment on the substance or potential consequences of the ongoing investigation.” 

If the EU investigation finds the beer giant guilty of wrong-doing, it could fine the company as much as 10 percent of its global revenue– well over $43 billion.

Science Explains Why You Only Like To Smoke Cigarettes When You Drink

If you ask people today how they feel about smoking cigarettes, most will tell you itjust isnt cool anymore.

So, despite our society taking several steps backward in recent years (re: that orange creature who lives in the White House), weve at least managed toget the memo on how bad smoking really is for your health.

Except, we still have a few stragglers on that front.

If youve ever been to a party, you know who these people are. Theyre the ones always asking otherpeople if they can bum a cig, because they dont consider themselves to be legitimate smokers.

Theyre the casual smokers who would never go out and buy a pack for themselves, yet every time you see them at a social gathering (particularly when alcohol is involved),there they are, puffing away on a cancer stick, like its NBD.

I hate to burst your bubble, casual smokers, but puffing is kind of a big deal.

A new studyfocused on young adult smokers, between the ages of 18 and 25.

The researchers found participantstended to derive more pleasure from smoking a cigarette when drinking alcohol, compared with smoking a cigarette when also smoking pot.

Now, to me, these findings inherently make sense.

In my own experience, Ive seen plenty ofpeople at parties dangling a cigarette in one hand and precariously holding a red solo cup in the other.

On the other hand, you dont ever really see people double-fisting a cigarette and a joint, a bowl, or literally any other pot-smoking device.


I think weve all heard the excuse, I only smoke when I drink, more times than weve ever cared to.

According to another study, the declaredsocial smokers light one up when they drink because they desirea stimulant effect (which nicotine provides) to combat the drowsy feelingthat alcohol often causes.

But, just because science has now kind of confirmed how good it feels to smoke a cig while sipping a beer, and how it keeps you from feeling drowsy, that still doesnt make it OK.

The researchers concluded in their studyon the pleasures of combining alcohol and cigarettes,

Targeting the increased pleasure from smoking cigarettes when drinking alcohol could enhance effectiveness of smoking cessation interventions among young adults.

The authors also hope future studies in this area will explore what people think will happen, or how they expect to feel, when pairing cigarettes and alcohol together.

Are You Sweet Or Savory? What Your Favorite Flavor Says About You

I firmly believe there are two kinds of people in this world: people who love sweet food and people who love savory food.

I honestly have never met anyone who loves both types equally. If I could count the number of people I’ve met who told me chocolate just isn’t their “thing,” I’d be out of fingers and toes. (By the way, how the hell can younot like chocolate?!)

In my experience, youre either the girl whocries into a box of chocolate after a breakup (me) or the girl whoeats her way through a Big Mac and fries. Either way, “Heartbroken You” ends up fat and sad, but I digress.

I always seem to go for Hersheys Kisses, Reeses peanut butter cups and Starbucks Venti mochafrappuccinos when I want a treat. Sometimes Ill even opt for a bucketload of sugar for dinner instead of real food. It just satisfies me.

Hungover medoes the same. Greasy breakfast doesnt cure my post-drinking woes. Chocolate bars dipped in hot chocolate do.

Ive always wondered if theres any sort of connection between the foods we prefer and the kinds of people we are. My best friend, for example, is a little salty around the edges. Shes a bit of a cynic, but she hasa gentleinterior. She also hasa permanent can of Pringles on her desk.

I, on the other hand, see the world throughrose-tinted glasses. I also happen to live exclusively for chocolate: white, milk, dark. You name it, I eat it.

Could it be a coincidence, then, that I — the so-called “sweeter” of the two of us — reach for the sweet stuff, while my more realistic BFF reaches for the chips and guac?

The American Psychological Association conducted a study of 55 college students and rated their affinities for 50 different foods in the five major taste types: sour, sweet, bitter, spicy and salty. The researchers found that the students who liked sweets had a higher level of agreeableness, which also meant they were more likely to be cooperative, compassionate and amicable.

In another study,55 undergraduate students were each given abland cracker, a piece of milk chocolate or nothing. They were then asked to helpa college professor complete a task. The students who were fed the sweetened food (milk chocolate) were more willing to help the professor than the students who were fed unsweetened food and those who weren’t fed at all.

There’s no scientific evidence as to why the sweet-loving students were also the sweetest. Maybe the chocolate lovers felt momentarily energized fromtheir sugar high, which would explainwhy they’d want to take on an extra task. Or maybe chocolate lovers are just naturally cooler people (ahem), which is the theory I’m going with.

According to other research, salt-lovers like my friend, who chow down on foods like pizza and french fries, go with the flow and have what’s called an “external locus of control.” In other words, they believe that outside forces like fate — not their own actions — determine the path of their future. They take things in stride and don’t stress over the bad sh*t because what happens is supposed to happen. Interesting.

As for you spicy food lovers, you’re risk takers. But I think you probably already knew that. You’re the kind of person to take risks not justin life, but also withfood. While everyone else shies away from trying crocodile meat, you gladly take on the challenge because it adds to thelistof cool sh*t you’ve done. Basically, everyone else should aspire to be a little more like you.

For those who like the taste of bitter foods, I have some not-so-great news. It turns out you’re the most likely to have psychopathic personality traits. That means that if you like your coffee black or enjoy the taste of beer over wine, you might be narcissistic, malevolent and take pride in inflicting pain on others.

All right, then. Don’t mind if I stay away from you guys.

I’m intrigued by the apparentlink between our flavors of choice and who we are as people. Whats funny is that Ive tried to change my tastebuds in an attempt to develop acquired tastes for different foods. I dont want to end up with diabetes (it runs in my family), so Ive been incorporating more salty, savory and spicy foods into my diet.

But maybeI’m also subconsciouslytrying to change the way I look at the world. Because though being sweet is one of my greatest strengths, it also happens to be one of my greatest weaknesses. I tend to let people walk all over me, and that isnt exactly the best quality to have.

I think itd be too much to be part of a friend group in whicheveryone isexactly the same. Having friends with varying tastebuds makes for a good dinner groups because though you guys might disagree on which restaurant to go to, at least you know you wont be eating off each others plates the entire time.

I don’t know about you, but that makes me rejoice. I HATE when people steal my food. Especially myoverpriced organic chocolate.

The Shocking Things About Aging That No One Ever Talks About

Everybody ages differently and nobody actually understands how they wound up at their own 60th birthday party. For most of us, “old” will always be 20 years down the road from whatever age we are now. But there are some surprises in store for some young-ens, some things that nobody warns you about. We asked our friends and Huff/Post50 readers what caught them off guard about the aging process. Here’s some of what they said:

1. Hair relocates; who knew?

Yes, men — and often women — go bald as they age. According to the American Hair Loss Association, by age 35, two-thirds of men experience some hair loss. By 50, about 85 percent of men have significantly thinner hair. Among those who lose hair, 40 percent are female.

But aging also brings with it hair growth in places you don’t really want there to be. Menopause — and certain hormone replacement products you take to beat back its symptoms — can cause facial hair to grow on women. Let’s face it: Thick black chin hairs and a coarse mustache are no friends of womankind.

While there is no scientific evidence to prove this, many a women’s book club has discussed whether the chin hairs appearing are somehow connected to the eyebrows disappearing. Yes, eyebrows go MIA and in many cases, take your eyelashes with them. Truth. Prozac taken for depression and Atenolol for hypertension can also cause it. How big a deal is losing your eyebrows? A pretty big one. Some people have even taken to having eyebrow transplants

And lastly, there is a change to pubic hair. It thins out to a shell of its former glory and will turn white or gray just like the hair that remains on your head. Don’t sweat this one too much because the extra belly roll that many middle-agers sprout generally blocks our vision of what’s going on down below anyway. 

2. Our bellies can beget more bellies.

On men, we call those protruding pouches that spill over the top of trousers “beer bellies.” But women get them too and they really don’t come from drinking too much beer. They are belly fat and they are the enemy of good health. Regardless of your overall weight, carrying around a spare tire on your middle will increase your risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. The National Institute on Aging says belly fat comes from the age-related slowing of your metabolism. 

Reader Helen Pardoe, who is nearly 70, has put on some weight since she retired five years ago. “While working I was always very slim,” she said. “It could be that I sit more, or I have less stress or that I enjoy my food more…” She added, “I am not complaining. I am healthy and I can put up with dieting every so often, just to keep my fat under control.” Same thing happened to reader Sue Burroughs, who just turned 69 and retired two years ago. “I always took the stairs and frequently used them multiple times every day at work — 42 steps! Now with about 15 additional pounds to carry around, I realize what a good thing I was doing!”

 3. For some, the days fly by.

Remember how, after you had kids, you’d tell people how you only thought you were busy before they came along? Oddly, that’s what some retirees say about retirement. Reader Burroughs wrote, “Before I retired I always got annoyed at retirees who said, ‘I don’t know how I ever worked! I wouldn’t have the time to fit work into my schedule now.’ And now I find that there aren’t enough hours in the day …” Posting as Nature’s Medicine Cabinet came this in agreement: “Time certainly seems to speed up each day I grow older.” Staying busy is good for us. Busy people are happier people. 

4. But that is not a universal truth.

Loneliness sucks at any age, but not having interesting people or things to fill your days in retirement can lead to depression. So can illness, pain and chronic medical conditions. Depression impacts older people differently than it does younger people. In the elderly, it lasts longer and is associated with an increased risk of cardiac diseases and an increased risk of death from illness. Studies of nursing home patients with physical illnesses have shown that the depression substantially increases the likelihood of death from those illnesses. 

Instead of going straight from the rat race to the bingo game, the new trend is a gradual ease into retirement. It even has a name: phased-in retirement. You basically shift to part time and train the younger workers how to do your job. And besides, who still plays bingo anyway with Candy Crush just a screen click away? Games and puzzles are actually good for aging brains, studies have shown, and online gaming is an inexpensive form of entertainment and it doesn’t require driving at night.

5. Aging hurts sometimes.

A few readers said that no one warned them about the multitude of aches and pains they would experience as they got older and their body parts begin to fail. Reader Tom Stowe said he is plagued with “daily joint pain that limits the amount of things you can accomplish in a day.” Reader Elaine Vallo could do without the “sagging skin.” And Ilene Whitehead just wrote “aches and pains!!” 

Attitude, it’s a wondrous thing. The true fountain of youth may be found in having a positive attitude. 

6. You finally shake off middle school.

What you’ve heard about not caring what others think is absolutely true — and a great part of aging. You wear comfortable shoes. You never ask what the expected attire is anymore. You will go to the grocery store without wearing makeup. It isn’t that you don’t care about how you look; it’s that you don’t care how others think you look. 

There may be nothing more liberating than the freedom not to care.

Park life: Tokyo, the latest city to get a high line

A section of disused railway in central Tokyo has been converted into a pretty paved lane a welcome sanctuary in the worlds largest city

New York and Paris have one, Singapore and Seoul want one. London cant make its mind up. High lines regenerating the elevated sections of disused railway lines to make new public spaces have become a must-have for many cities. Like Tokyo.

One metro stop from the tourists walking Shibuyas scramble crossing is an urban village, still in central Tokyo, called Daikanyama, where Log Road is the worlds newest high line. The best thing is: its also the most low-key.

Log Road is a collection of wooden cottages built on top of the old Tokyu line tracks, where trees and plants sprout next to benches. After the madness of Shibuya, walking through the tenements and green spaces of Log Road is an unfamiliar Tokyo experience.

Visitors

Number 1 Log Road is Spring Valley Brewery, owned by Japanese brewer Kirin. Local hipsters queue for lunches of Okinawan pork sausage and beer flights out on its terrace (try the sweet On The Cloud and bitter Afterdark). Or get a seat in the industrial interior, which shows off huge fermentation tanks through glass cases.

Crucially for this high line, theres plenty of outdoor space. If you cant get a table at Spring Valley or outside at Garden House Crafts, go to the end of Log Road: theres an elevated space with picnic benches. This particular afternoon, the sun shines and couples are taking selfies in front of the districts low-rise buildings. Im drinking a flat white and eating a green matcha doughnut. A moment of peace in the worlds largest city.
