THERE is more to life than eating, sleeping, and working. There are many ways to spend our leisure time. Some people make crafts, some belong to a sports team, some like to travel, some play games, some collect things, some participate in trivia contests and some learn a new skill.
Everyone has different hobbies. For some, finding a hobby is an easy process but for others, it can be tricky as there are so many options out there.
A hobby is an activity that you enjoy doing in your spare time.
Hobbies can be divided into four large classes: doing things, making things, collecting things, and learning things.
SOME people think a little bit outside the square and take up hobbies you might not know even existed.
You take a flat oval stone and try to make it bounce on water as many times as possible. The Guinness World Record for “the most consecutive skips of a stone on water” is a 88 throw.
This hobby is a unique eco-art form called Pooktre created, developed and perfected by Australians Peter Cook and Becky Northey.
Collecting belly-button fluff Australian man Graham Barker has been collecting and storing his navel fluff since 1984. His collection now weighs 22.1 grams. He has a Guinness World Record recognising his collecting of the stuff for more than twenty years. He started in 1984, keeps it all in carefully labelled jars, and has greeted every single question about why he collects navel fluff with, “why not?”
Rolling mud into a ball, then dusting it with soil, and repeating the process again and again is a traditional hobby in Japan.
Participants find weird or unusual ways to set up their ironing board, and iron their clothes. A world championship has even been held.
