I think the time investment of looking for the perfect porno kind of kills that. Time is money.

However, time you enjoy wasting isn't wasted time.

And it's healthy for you, at least prostate-wise, so I'm going to get healthier every day.

Save time. Lower your standards a bit, and instead of looking for "perfect" porn, look for "good enough" porn.

Condoms, unless you suddenly want it to be a very expensive way of not having fun.

Having sex requires another person to be accomplished.

You can do it for free, or for money.

The "for money" option is hiring a prostitute and paying her/him for sex. It's quite expensive.

The "for free" option is getting a girlfriend/boyfriend and it's ridiculously expensive.

Sandbox games. Most are a one time payment and they have potentially hundreds of hours of playtime. Terraria has given me over 200 hours of fun for less than £10

Anything that's accessible and stimulates the creative part of your brain is endless fun. Minecraft is another obvious choice, and if you like space stuff then Kerbal Space Program is an amazing timesink.

I love the kind of games that are endlessly replayable too, like a good roguelike (Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup is my favourite and is free), ARPGs like Diablo 2/3, or competitive games like Quake Live.

Maybe it's just me, but I rarely have the attention span to really get into Minecraft. I've spent a considerable amount of time playing it, but somehow due to my lack of creativity, despite all the features and possibilities the game has these days, I always end up doing the same stuff - find a nice place, build a shelter, dig down until diamonds, build a better house with farm, bored, never touch that savegame ever again.

There are even highly replayable and/or competitive games that are completely free. Path of Exile, with its deep item and skill systems, is definitely worth mentioning as a competitor to Diablo 2/3, while MOBAs such as Dota 2 and LoL are hugely popular, highly competitive games with big monetary prizes at tournaments.

Terraria is possibly the best time vs cost ratio I have at the moment, bought a few years ago for £1.50 and have 500+ hours on it ... Just restarted totally over again with the new patch that added tons of stuff.

Funny you should mention that. I actually started writing something just after I wrote that comment just to see where I'd go. This is the result. Incomplete of course and probably full of errors...

The first time I stopped time on purpose was to look at Emily Carpenter naked. I had stopped time a bunch before, but never on purpose. It was always an accident. Like when I dropped my cell phone or mom got home early and I was watching porn on the internet. That’s also how I learned the rules.

The first rule is, you can’t touch anybody. Touching the air doesn’t seem to affect anything. Touching the ground does though. Every step I take and I can see time slowly starting to--you know. Turn on. It’s like in slow motion until it gets to regular sleep. Touching stuff, like doors or furniture is like touching the floor. But if you touch a person. Well lets just say I almost gave my mom a heart attack the first time I did it.

The second rule is, you can’t get out of breath. Running or getting too excited is like suddenly being under water. You just can’t breath anymore. So you’ve got to be careful or at the very least fast about turning on time again.

And the last rule, the one that I broke before I even knew it was a rule was don’t let anybody see you do it.

2

I mostly used to stop time at school. At lot to look at. A lot to do. I used to hang out in the girls locker room for hours. I wish my cell phone’s camera worked. Nothing works when time is turned off or slowed down. Whatever I’m carrying seems to be immune from the touching rule but none of it works.

When I finally got control of it, I became an A student almost overnight. Copying homework and tests became like an art form. A few times I actually bumped into people and started time but I was good about stopping it again. Hurt like hell though. Starting it so soon. Like touching an electric wire.

Sometimes I’d stop time so I could take naps. Sometimes I’d just do it so I could look around. I think in a week I walked through every inch of the city. Probably took me close to a year to do it in my time, but in slow-mo time, it barely took any time at all. Saw some pretty messed up stuff too. People getting hurt, people hurting other people, but I never got involved. I figured anything that was gonna happen if I didn’t see it should still happen. I should of made that a rule because it was the reason I got caught.

Something that would of never happened if I wouldn't of stopped time was for me to start stealing. It was small stuff at first. Candy bars, cans of soda, but one time I got it into my head that i should steal someone’s bank card. I did it right in front of the ATM machine too. Waited for everyone to check their balance. And when someone had one that was big enough, I wated for them to walk away a little and I took their card. Of course I had watched them key in their atm code in slow motion so taking the money was a piece of cake.

For whatever reason I never thought I should cover my face. The cops came the next day. I hid of course, just beyond where they would look for me. And eventually they left. But watching me steal that money wasn't all they saw. Someone saw me do my little trick. And after the cops left, the army carme and took my mom. They showed up at my school. My picture ended up on TV and on the internet. They said I was a terrorist who had tried to plant explosives at some building downtown.

That was it for me. I had to go.

“Do you know what we’re going to do to your mother?”

It was a one line message, but it was only for me. I was the only one who could see it. Whenever I stopped time, which was a lot these days I found it randomly written everywhere. It was on billboards, television screens, even on walls. I could only see it when I went I stopped When time caught up it would fade away just as quickly as my effects on the clocks did.

The message changed every week.

The next message was an address in New Mexico. The one after that was a IP address. When I went to it, it was a webcam of my mom being water boarded. Before that, I didn’t even know what water boarding was.

After I watched the video I hung out across the street from the best buy where I had used the computer. It didn’t take more than ten minutes for helicopters and black SUVs to show up. I knew it had been a trap, but now I knew how to get them to go where i wanted them to go. I had to make plans, but I couldn’t do it here.

4.

It took me four months to walk to city small enough not to have a big police force but big enough to have high speed internet in mexico. I almost didn’t make it. The heat sucks when time is stopped. It’s like walking though a pillow. And you don’t sweat like normal so it was a way of overheating you in a way you couldn't ever imagine.

I step show in four empty hotel rooms all over town. In each of them a tablet with a computer that pointed to that IP address. In each room I also hid a taser and a knife. Just before noon on January the first, I started time and sprung my trap. It took longer for people to get there. I expected that. The local cops all fanned around throughout the city but kept their distance. Just watching the hotel’s entrances. Eventually a cargo ship flew over the city and soldiers just fell from the sky. A dozen of them. This wasn't what I wanted. Soldiers wouldn’t know anything. I needed to know what they knew. So I had to change my plans slightly.

When two of the soldiers burst into one of the room’s I was ready. I stunned one, stopped time, then stunned the other. Rule number two says I can’t search them. Not while they’re alive.

It took me four weeks to actually build up the courage to kill one of them. I stuck my knife right there his chest. I couldn't’ afford to be nice about it. If I missed or they didn’t die, they’d get me. I only had one shot. The second soldier took me two months. His eyes were full of fear right before I stabbed him. He had just watched me appear out of nowhere and kill his partner--maybe his friend. Then he watched me vanish. He must of known what was coming next. And it did.

5.

Cell phones, printed out pictures of me, some weird weapon that each of them had and braceletes. It was a treasure trove of information. The cell phones had recent GPS coordinates in New Mexico. Told he everywhere they had been. The pictures of me were much more telling. It wasn't just me at the ATM or me at best buy. THey had thirty different pictures each on a page. Some of them in places I don’t remember seeing anyone or anything around. They were tracking me somehow. Getting close. Closer than I had ever thought.

Then came the weapons. They worked when time was shut off. I tested one. Whatever I shot it at lost the effects of my time slow down. I didn’t realize this at first until a threw a tennis ball into the air and fired. The ball kept going. Although it arched as if it were heavier and when it hit the ground it didn’t bounce.

But the biggest prize of all had been the bracelets. When I wore them, my effects on time around me ended. I could touch what i wanted to touch. I could move what I wanted to move. Even people. I don’t know how this would of helped the soldiers. But it made me nervous. Mostly because it meant they knew more about this time effect then I did. After that I ran for a long time.

I went south as far as I could. Started time only to eat and go to the bathroom. Eventually I snuck onto a boat and traveled with it to Europe.

I disagree. There's a bunch of alternatives to paying the $13 ($10 in the US). There's an intro app which is free. There's alternate iPhone apps, I believe. C:geo is free and is arguably better than the iPhone app. And also, you don't even need the app really, you can go on the website for free, click on a cache, it'll give the coordinates, then you can put them into your phone or other GPS and you're good to go.

Modern board games.

My favourite is Settlers of Catan. Spent $60 AUD for the game. My friends and I have spent maybe 100+ hours trading wood for sheep. So $0.15 per hour of entertainment!

My non geek friends enjoy spending the weekend getting 'free drinks'. Not really my style. I rather buy my own drink than pretend to be interested in the biggest loser at the bar.

I want to get more board games in the hopes I can get my friends together more often. Though I think we're more just limited by schedules. I can say though, Pen and Paper RPGs like D&D are lots of fun as well, and you can sort of get the rules for free.

I have City and Knights as well. But we don't often play because it makes the game so long. And also because the cards give power to take an attacking strategy, and friends become enemies. But I think my friends are just sensitive. Nowadays, our group of friends would move the robber to unoccupied land so that no one gets pissed off.
