Well I think you've been bugged with some idiot questions before.
What I hate most are these:

1. Why do you collect such things?
(Just collect, why need a reason?)
2. What can you do with such things?/ How could you use them?
(Why SHOULD I keep only "useful" things?)
3. (Extremely hateful) Criticize my collection.

Other than my missus & kids, nobody else knows I collect betas outside
of the forums...
I don't have to explain myself as a result....

As far as my friends & collegues are concerned, I go Kart racing or
slot car racing as a hobby....

people know i know about this stuff. my friends know i have betas/used/whatever, they don't really care or ask questions about why. My dad does sometimes, but he doesn't mind.

Practically all of my friends, and my family, don't see why I waste time collecting hardware and software. My parents don't like me having about 8 machines piled up in a dusty corner of the shed waiting to be dealt with. They all have useful stuff on them, but it's just that I don't have the time. :P

My parents/friends almost never ask me about that, and if they do, I just say "It's the way it is" and put the discussion ad acta in the beginning. I like beta collecting and period.
