28 Odd Pastimes

From Playing Dead to Edible Knitting

— September 18, 2009 — Lifestyle
As the world continues to push the boundaries of technology (and other advancements that for some reason escape me at the moment), the average Joe and Jill have taken it upon him/herself to experiment with the simple act of passing the time. I have compiled here for you a few odd past times that have directly resulted from these experiments.

Maybe you don’t need a new hobby. Maybe you’re that person who needs more time. But once in a while a person just needs to let loose with some weird time-wasters. So sit back, relax, and take a look at this cluster of odd pastimes.
