If there's one thing I've learned in life, it's that everyone collects something. What that is varies greatly from person to person (from comic books to action figures to DVDs to bottle caps to military history to sports memorabilia... etc.) but we all have the urge to collect things that bring us joy.

So my question is... What do you collect?

Since I asked, I'll go first:

-Generation 1 Transformers (the 1984, 1985, and 1986 toy lines)
-Video Games (NES, Super NES, PS2/PS1, and GameCube)
-DVDs of my favorite movies & TV shows
-Reference books on Math, Science, and Social Studies (like an Atlas of The World, a Physics book, or a book on the Metric System)
-classical music, and soundtracks to my favorite video games, movies, and TV shows

I'm a nerd, I know.
Now it's your turn!

* Books - Mainly on computer programming (oldies especially, like programming the old C64), the paranormal, ufology, occult, religion, electronics and physics.
Also text documents on anything programming/computer related - I have massive archives of these (any subject you can think of).

* Music - wide variety, if I hear something I like; I get it. Normally it's rock of some sort - I'm a rock 'n' roll sort of geezer

* Computers - Again, old ones especially - from the C64, to old Pentium 1s. Also any old/interesting computer parts to play with.

* Horror movies - you can't beat a good old horror movie.

In the grand scheme of things my collecting is pretty random.

I collect:
.Rare forms of timber, specifically fiddleback.
.Newspapers with world changing headlines. (Like the first paper of the millinium, Twin Towers etc...)
.Reference books
.Things that are old. (Books, Coins, Bottles etc...)
.Schwarzenegger films (childhood hero
.Things from my past (I'm very sentimental)
.Cd's/Music (Mostly Metal)

I have lots of other interesting things, but I wouldn't say that they're part of a collection, just a horde of intrigue.

Oh yeah, I like collecting Australian Dollars, hoping to reach $1million+ one day
