Some people love to bake and spend their days off prepping delicious sugary confections. Others collect movies or books (and they know full well that they'll never be able to get through them all.

But other people are a bit more offbeat than that, as we learned once Redditor BruhTulup asked the online community, "What is your strange hobby?"

If you've been looking for the place to share your love for collecting rubber ducks, then you're in luck!

"Sometimes when I'm bored..."

Sometimes when I'm bored I will Google bars and restaurants in other countries, look at their menu and try to decide what I would get to eat/drink if I was there. It helps me kill time and who knows, maybe one day I'll be able to eat at one of these places.

"I go to the courthouse..."

I go to the courthouse and I watch trials. The day I turned 30 years old, I saw a former policeman get 30 years jail time for murdering an old lady. That had some kind of resonance for me.

"I run incredibly detailed simulations..."

I run incredibly detailed simulations of sports leagues using pen and paper, childrens toys, and ocassionally elements of chance like dice, coins, etc.

I occasionally use a licensed video game of a specific sports league in order to keep better track of stats and trends.

"It's fun to think of all the elements..."

Designing new types of pasta. It's fun to think of all the elements of it (shape, ingredients, texture, etc.) and how you can innovate upon them to create something completely new. I always loved sculpture, but this is even better because it's pasta and I get to eat it.

"I'm an archer..."

I'm an archer and make my own arrows sometimes and I like to take apart old electronics and make specialty arrows that can shock and start fires.

"I go out in a little boat..."

I go "Trash Fishing." I go out in a little boat and hunt for trash. My son invented this hobby after we caught no fish. I'm all in now. I pull hundreds of pounds of trash out of the Detroit River each time I go.

"I like to make small statues of people..."

I like to make small statues of people I know out of spam, then take them to the park and take pictures of pigeons eating them.

"I try to predict the box office..."

I try to predict the box office (how much money movies make) and it has been a couple of dire months lately.

"Big Brother is watching you..."

The famous words from George Orwell's dystopian novel 1984, which tells the story of a world governed by omnipresent surveillance.

Today, however, many people are under increased paranoia that their every step is being monitored by the government, or by the world's largest corporations.

Not helping their fears, is when people look back on information collected by their Google data, and see that virtually every step they've taken has been documented.

Even things some people might not remember doing themselves.

Even if they sometimes appear less than excited to go to school, children are always eager to learn.

As they will encounter new experiences with each passing year, resulting in parents and other adults being bombarded by new questions regularly.

Most frequently, if not necessarily intentionally, as a delay tactic before going to bed.

Which is when it's important for the parent, grandparent, or babysitter who's in charge of bedtime to come up with one, exceptionally satisfying fact which will give them plenty to think about, or dream about, after the lights are turned off.

Who would have predicted the endless source of entertainment and fascination the Internet provides.

With countless websites where one can shop, watch movies, catch up on news, play games... and do just about anything.

As a kid, it’s easy to make friends. You don’t need to do much. Just share your pudding snack pack or make mud pies, and you have a new best friend.

As an adult, it can seem harder. You can’t really make mud pies anymore (in fact, that may be a way to drive off friends), and adults are a lot less open than kids, so it can be difficult to develop a rapport.

However, it’s not as hard as it seems to make friends, even as an adult. If you’re struggling, or even just looking for new ways to meet people, Reddit has got you covered!
