Strange Hobbies?

(1/1)

Dossta:
MysticMoon's recent foray into tomb raiding has made me wonder.  What are the strangest hobbies that you have a) ever participated in and b) ever heard of?  Could be a good way to spice up a character or NPC, too.

Here are mine:
a) Creating 2D-isometric pixel art.  There's just something about building an image one pixel at a time that I find fascinating.
b) Fierljeppen.  It's basically a sport based around crossing a body of water with a long pole.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UhTMEePk6D4

MysticMoon:
Aw, chasing down ancient Mayan burial chambers isn't all that strange, is it? :P

a) Gregg shorthand. I've been intrigued by it for years and finally decided to buckle down and learn it this last January. It took me about 8 months to get the basics down and it will be much longer before I am any good at it. I wrote the first draft of Amazons and Orcs with it and I used it to write the phrase "Show me time itself" as the glyph in The Glyph of Tarnos Krae.

b) I'll have to think about this one.

Scrasamax:
My wife collects and shows 1/9th scale model horses.
