Some people paint pictures, others cars or helmets, others do computers. Most 
of the people who casemod as far as I see it (I don't know anyone irl who has 
modded his case though) use them for games and movies.

This depends on a subjective view of what a good waste of time is supposed to 
be. Some people spend their free time in their garage onder a 4wd 
heavyweight. I don't get a clue what's so fascinating about that.

And that relates to casemodding how?

I wouldn't let my 8-year old handle a drill or paint spray... Given I had an 
8-year old of course :)
