Have you ever done yardwork?

The idea of it is that you haul a rock from here to there, you plant grass and then cut it to the regulation length, you select a plot of earth and decide which plants you want to grow and which ones you don't, and you pick up leaves. You devote all of your free time to these activities, attacked by biting insects all the while.

It has always struck me as the most pointless and meaningless busywork that takes time away from more constructive things, but it remains a popular hobby across this land.
