48 People Who Took Up Unusual Hobbies

We all have our own way of unwinding. And it doesn’t really matter if we’re running or knitting—as long as those activities aren’t hurting anyone and keep us level-headed.

Some people, however, take up such unusual and interesting hobbies, even the mere fact that they thought of it can raise your eyebrows. Let alone the results of their passion. Like making completely edible jello art. Or collecting rocks that look like eggs.

#12 Started By Buying A Few Advertising Rulers Here And There

I started by buying a few advertising rulers here and there; yard sales, eBay, and the occasional antiques store when they weren’t charging $20/stick. I figured that I would use them as wainscoting in a small room once I found my forever home. People would give them to me as gifts around the holidays. Two homes later, there was some very boring pine paneling and needed something. I still have about 100 yardsticks left. Maybe for a vacation house some day
