I watch TV for about 10 hrs a week as my relaxation. The rest of the time, I have is rather fragmented. Half an hour here, 2 hrs there but usually unpredictable. So, if I have a block of time, I'd rather veg out and relax. Now, if I could make an industry out of it, you bet I will go around scrounging for oil to do it. Of course, when the biodiesel making plant gets online nearby, I suspect the oil supplies will dry up pretty quick.

Drag racing is all about cubic dolllars. How fast you wanna go depends on how much you want to spend. Now, if that is fun for you, sure. Like I said NILIF. Nothing In Life Is Free. For $2000 a year, I'd rather veg out in front of the TV than to earn that. Now, if we are doing an industry, I'd be all over it like a cheap suit.

So there you go. 2 hours a week. Not all in one chunk. Some people drive that much trying to find the lowest gas price. Well almost.
