    Default Weird small things that give you joy.

    What weird shit do you do that gives you joy? I've got a few:
    1) when smoking meats, I really enjoy using my digital thermometer to track and chart the internal temperature of the meat. I started doing it when I was a newbie and didn't know what I was doing, and I still do it mostly because I find it super satisfying.
    2) I enjoy using an app (Ampere) to see how fast my phone charges with carious combinations of cords and charging bricks. It occasionally helps me identify cords that are damaged, but mostly, it's just satisfying to see how many mA I'm charging at.

    Let your freak flag fly everyone, what little things do you do that people might find odd but you find satisfying or enjoyable?

    I enjoy my weekly trip to buy groceries and building Ikea furniture.

    Steam your eggs instead of boiling them, shell easily peels every time!

    Just quench them after cooking.

    12-14 minutes from a boil and then run then under cold water immediately after.

    Perfect every time.

    The feel of that soft ridge of your finger tips after you cut your nails.

    The smell of freshly cut grass, saw dust, and the outdoors after a rainfall.

    The hardness of gummy candy that is aged just right.

    The feel of a new keyboard or mouse.

    Silky smooth feel of my heavily modified scroll wheel on mouse. Oh yeah, that's the stuff.

    Regripping/cleaning my golf clubs.

    Cutting the grass. It's a PITA, but I love it. The look, feel, smell are all fantastic.

    Watching anything become clean, pretty much. Especially if it's done in a very precise way like pressure washing (yes I am aware of the subreddit). Same with watching things being manufactured very precisely.

    Also similar to the OP I enjoy testing/verifying charging wattage of various things. It's almost impossible to find in reviews, but valuable information IMO.

    Using really well made equipment / tools / devices. Tactile buttons, well dampened dials, etc.

    I also love the smell of wet concrete, which is probably my weirdest one.

    I feel the previous Toilet_D has returned, which given the timing makes you think it's of the ongoing Toma/Gestalt/troll saga.

    Yes!
    That sounds almost poetic....
