Can we have a prize for the person who comes up with the most entertaining volunteer opportunity out there?

I vote for the Fool who volunteers to be a guinea pig for clinical trials of new surgical procedures. Cousin Barbara, who loves Discovery's blood & gore channel, would watch. I guess that counts as entertainment.

Entertainment is most certainly in the eye of the beholder. A good friend of mine is spending retirement devouring books. It's the same entertainment he pursued while working, but now he has a lot more time to devote to it.

Since I can't find people to play bridge with my entertainment is cooking. I'm plowing my way through recipes that I've collected over the years but never had time to try.
