    Quoted from Kkoss24:

    Hold the phone ....how bad do these shows smell ?

    I discovered pinball in 2004 and like most newbies quickly became addicted. Trying to convince my wife how cool the hobby was we went to our first Expo in 2005. It had the exact opposite effect. Lots of body odor and creepy stares there. I don't think many ladies were into pinball back then and that experience didn't exactly get her excited about it either.

    Quoted from Tranquilize:

    Any "guy" hobbies are full of mutants, stinkies and creeps.

    Well to be fair this was 16 years ago. I think pinball is has a lot more female followers now. It felt a lot less like my first experience in the later events I have attended.

    And since then my wife has grown to appreciate them as nostalgic pieces of functional art. She has very little interest in playing them.
