Subject: RE: BS: Your hobby
Well a hobby is something you do regularly that doesn't need to be done.

So in the modern flick-a-switch society, growing your own vegetables rather than getting Tescos to deliver or even walking to the shop to get them yourself - well I submit - in the culture of excess it is a hobby.

On the plains of the Kalahari Dessert - it would be a necessity - if a struggle, so not the Noble Nomad's hobby. (yea, yea, I know - but nomads do husband the land)
