Ok, I'll admit, the aforementioned 5 things are not for everybody and I am missing a ton of other things you can do. Also, many people commute. There are people who are going to want Biodiesel-Hybrid autos (including me) and have a fetish for playing Roy Rogers on the 50 cent plastic horse rides at the grocery stores (no comment ;). But, for me, the bottom line is that if I get in a car outside of going to work or to a class, it is generally to have fun, ie. restaurants, clubs, parties, sporting events, etc). I don't think any of those are a waste of time or gas, and even then, my time on the road is minimal.
