Way to much time on your hands

This guy definitely has way to much time on his hands. He should have spent the time catching eelpout.

I was never a big Styx fan, too many jump suits, puffy hair and shifty eyes. Maybe if I find myself with too much time on my hands I'll read that Hobbit thing, but probably not.

I don't understand the whole "too much time on their hands" that people spew out when someone has a hobby that isn't sitting around playing video games, watching reality TV, or drinking alone in a bar...

Deciphering a made-up Dwarvish language on a movie prop seems just a bit more odd than kicking back on the couch with a beer and watching the Kardashians.

Odd but hey he's using his brain at least. Watching the Kardashians AND drinking sounds like a brain cell mass murder.

Just because everyone else does it (e.g. kicking back on the couch with a beer and watching the Kardashians) doesn't make it right!

If there was only some way that he could get a Ph.D. dissertation out of this. Exactly the sort of narrow-niche research that would impress a doctoral committee out there somewhere.
