What is you favorite Man-made activity?

Asked by Cruiser (40421points) December 3rd, 2010

Pretty self explanatory…what do you absolutely LOVE to do that is specifically creation of man?? Communing with nature, sex, eating, getting high and Fluthering are not the answers I am looking for. What do you like to do that are the direct result of man’s imagination and ability to create fun and entertainment to get through the day!

Bicycling. I smile every time I get on a bike, no matter where I am and where I’m headed.

Watching movies while cuddling.
Being tangled up with someone else is a glorious feeling.

Balancing on the very tops of my big toes while my feet are supported by leather, glue, and satin. : )

Sex isn’t man-made, it’s nature, otherwise man would have had to teach animals how to have sex and reproduce. The claim that they have sex for reproduction sake is false also—ever encountered a dog in heat? Just saying… =/

My man-made activity would be playing a musical instrument such as the guitar.

There’s a quote about reading that I love (it sounds much better in Italian, but here’s the English): Of all the pleasures developed by man on this earth, the study of letters is not only the most noble, but also the most lasting – Francesco Petrarca

Ooh, @Seelix , very good answer.

@jonsblond I am so there!! Nothing like a lightly liquored up sadistic Captain taking you through the boat wake on a tight “whip it good turn” and being ejected 12’ into the air at 50 mph!!

Oh @JilltheTooth…be the rebel that you are and pick Futher as your fav!! XP

Boating. I love being able to see the land from the perspective of the water. I also love being out on the water.

@Cruiser : Believe me, after a week of being stay-at-home sick, Fluther is my second favorite man-made activity. Anything with Sudafed is my First!

Definitely reading/writing. In the past week, I read a tribute poem written by co-workers of my grandfather that was discovered in an old recipe box and two letters written by a 75 year old woman who sent them to my grandmother that have been tucked away in a small glove box. All three documents made me cry as I learned about relatives that impacted how I turned out despite never knowing them.

And thanks to those like @rpm_pseud0name for doing what @rpm_pseud0name said so that @Seelix get to do it.

If sex doesn’t count, does porn?

I like any creative activity; especially love. Love is man made, isn’t it? Isn’t that why they call it making love?

janbb's avatar

Got to go with reading even though @Seelix already said it and with a quote from Petrarch, no less!

LuckyGuy's avatar

Twisting the right hand grip on my Kaw and feeling the rush of horsepower push my eyeballs into their sockets.

But I’d still vote for “sex” as #1. (But it doesn’t count.)

HungryGuy's avatar

Well, if you’re excluding SEX, then the next on my list would be playing video games, writing, and listening to music.

Mikewlf337's avatar

watching tv. video games, listening to music.

Video games (90% of my personal time), chess and reading books.
