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!
I collect rubber ducks. Coming up on 200...
I make origami cranes. I've made at least 2,000 in the last couple years.
"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.
