Hi Eldorado,

I once collected Swiss watches. Just sold my Jaeger to help fund the creation of an ashram. I'm auctioning my last GIRARD PERREGAUX FERRARI chronograph, REF 8020, red dial.

Definitely, share with us your watch collection.

Peace.

Paul

I never thought I was a collector until recently.
I was struck with a realization that have a substancial collection of very bad decisions I have made in life.

At the heart of science is an essential balance between two seemingly contradictory attitudes--an openness to new ideas, no matter how bizarre or counterintuitive they may be, and the most ruthless skeptical scrutiny of all ideas, old and new.
This is how deep truths are winnowed from deep nonsense. -- Carl Sagan

  • You can't just choose to believe something.

    Believing in something doesn't make it true.

I collect exotic plants of the succulent variety from around the world (Africa, Madagascar, Mexico, South America and other places). I have approximately 1,000 plants, all in pots. The stranger, the better.

I don't do well with standard house plants though.....too much watering and for the most part.....boring..

Get three coffins ready.

My mistake, four coffins.

Edged weapons, mainly Middle Ages styles or Japanese Katanas, hadguns, several 44 Mags, long/short barrel, automatic weapons from WWII and from the 30s, two Thompson submachine guns, that are workable, another Thompson that was used during WWII by my cousin, an Army Ranger, finally made it to a Colonel, God knows how he did it, as did it irritate lots of German soldiers he had a hand in capturing. Wish he could have brought that Tiger Tank back he caught.

I collect natural things.... a dead dragonfly or butterfly now and then, magnolia pods, wasp nests, snake skins, rocks, pinecones, acorns. Whatever. I love that.

Rocks and fossils. Mostly ones that I found myself.

I don't have any academic background or qualification or life.
However, I can absorb all substances into the body from my eyes.

Books specifically old (pre 1900) history books and books printed in the town I live in. it had a small printing shop that put out hymnals and religious books in the mid to late 1800's. small catalogue but hard as heck to find (5 so far).

I also collect Army challenge coins but I'm rather particular as to which ones I buy so I doubt if my collection will grow.
