Addictions: video games and computers.

Rather a boring list, really. Thankfully, the other lists aren't too exciting either, like diving off cliffs or something.

That's just a hobby. Besides, calling it an addiction tends to creep people out, for some reason.

By the way, during the demostration of early radar equipment, Sir Henry Tizard asked Sir Robert Watson-Watt's assistant about power consumption:
