    Safc - season ticket and pint at half time £400
    5 a side - 200 a year
    Cycling - coast to coast and replacing maybe 1 worn out part a year 200
    Gaming - get all my games for the year for Xmas, so nowt.
    Porn collecting - a new hard drive every year £10
  3. Triathlon.

    The initial outlay is steep, but once the bike, wetsuit and runners are bought it’s just a case of buying when you need to. I go through a pair of runners every year....luckily I’ve found a shop in Singapore that sell the ones I use fairly cheaply...and we go there every year. Inner tubes. I can go through five or six one year and none the next. I’ve had the same goggles for the last four years. Pool cost is around $7 per swim but a season card brings the price down. Gels for the long bike rides taste like shite but as I’m not doing long distance tri’s at the moment I’ve still got some from three years ago.
    I’m also lucky that having needed to get a new wetsuit I won one as a spot prize at a tri two years ago.

    £20 per month gym but I never go.

    £20-£50 per year finding out about Aliens.

    £50 per year buying Charity shop tat.

    About £100 per year on watching safc.

    I am still a Marvel Collector about 18 years ago my average monthly bill was around £100 a month, it did start to get a bit out of control and had to make an effort to cut it down and gave it up for a few years, but then it creeped back into my life again.

    Wife saw my bill this afternoon, she turned around said “you can get your comics, so long as I can get my hair done each month” :lol:

    Fancied getting into triathlon last year but the cost put me off , talking £1000 minimum for a half decent bike and the race costs are steep also

    Quite honestly your recent, extremely odd, behaviour on here suggests an impending existential crisis.

    Haway man you’re not trying out for the Olympics.
    I got a basic Diamondback road bike for triathlons and training. Think it was about $500 (but the company chipped in $300 IIRC) and it works out fine. I usually win my age group so must be doing something right. I see younger blokes on those weird looking TT bikes and laugh as I pass them.

    The only thing I could really class as a hobby is my love of Physics. Been studying it for around 18 years. Apart from a few books I bought years ago, which in total cost less than £100, it hasn't cost me a penny.

    I'm also a bit of a filmbuff but I'm a pirate (Arrrr) so that costs nowt. The last DVD I bought was The Matrix Trilogy back in 2001/2002.

    I actually don't have a hobby. Used to play golf but when I won the monthly medal I gave up for some reason.
    Would love to build a proper model railway from scratch and spend time doing the scenery etc and no it won't be a train set
  20. Yes it’s a topper ,seen it though
