This is a question Guilty Pleasures, part 2

It's been a while since we last asked this question and CaptainFellatioNelson's confession that he likes "to fart under the duvet, creep in and see how long I can last only on the fart air contained within" reminded us just how good it was last time.

What are the little things you do for fun when nobody else is around?

I'm 21 and I love chasing pigeons.
Often this is in the form of walking quickly at a solitary pigeon, dogging it relentlessly until it flies off.

My favourite way of pigeon-chasing, though, is if there's a gaggle of pigeons pecking at the ground -- I charge right at them and make them scatter, and then turn around and run right back at them once they've regrouped.

I love doing this. It makes me laugh like a tard, and there's not much better for stress-relief than running all over the place gasping for breath through laughter. Exercise and laughter induce endorphin release, so pigeon-chasing gives me a double rush.

London is the best place to do this, particularly Russell Square. London pigeons are bolder than other pigeons, so they regroup quicker. Plus, they don't move out of the way until the last moment, so there's always a frantic moment of 'shit, what if I actually tread on one this time?' I never will, because pigeons can take off pretty much vertically and birds have excellent vision, but there's always that brief pang that I've gone too far this time.

When I worked in Woking there was a good cluster that gathered between the station and the office, and I'd always charge at them, laughing like a mong and being looked at oddly by besuited men with briefcases. I bet they secretly wanted to do it too.

I sometimes go to the park and scatter seed just to make the pigeons gather so I can chase them.

I suppose it's a guilty pleasure because it worries me a little that I'm being cruel to them. But I'm not actually hurting them; just annoying them, and if they were feeling really harassed they could fly out of my reach.

For the title alone. It sounds like a small ad. Well done.

I chase pigeons compulsively...
Well: one pigeon in particular. I just have to stop that pigeon NOW!

Having been to London,
I've got to say that your pigeons just don't compare to Aberdonian/Dundonian seagulls.

Seriously, a child could ride on the back of one of these things. They make groups of people scatter!

Though yeah, making them scatter is an instant pick-me-up!
