    Hi Everyone! Red Ranger here.
    Just thought it would be interesting to discuss hobbies we all have (other than gaming).
    My Hobbies
    I. Coin Collecting
    A. Pros
    1. Each coin tells a story from a different period in time. It's almost like owning a piece of history.
    2. Easy to start out with

    B. Cons
    1. Older coins can be very hard or difficult to get, and may not be in very good condition
    2. VERY expensive

    II. Chemical Sciences
    A. Pros
    1. Very fun and interesting, especially for you math geeks
    2. If you can get your hands on some stuff, you can do various tricks and reactions with beautiful end results!
    3. If you get into metallurgy, you can melt metals on your stove (at least certain ones) and see the beauty of molten metal without all that toxic mercury.

    B. Cons
    1. Hard to start out if you plan to do more than baking soda and vinegar.
    2. HORRENDOUSLY EXPENSIVE. HARD TO GET CHEMICALS AS WELL.
    3. VERY DANGEROUS.

    I: Drawing
    Pros:
    -helps calm me when a whole bunch of stupid is happening
    -I get better and better every day
    -amazing to look at afterwards
    -I get to share with others
    Cons:
    -my hands get covered in graphite making it look like I mines for coal
    -I'm extremely shy, so sharing my personal favorites is going to take a while
    -I don't feel original when I draw since most people have this hobby
    -my favorite pencils break all the flipping time (I'm looking at you 8:cool:

    II: Knitting or Crochet
    Pros:
    -also relaxing
    -I gets to make socks, Plasma is proud
    -I can go around selling the things I make
    Cons:
    -mostly people just give me this weird look when they see a guy knitting or something
    -tangling of yarn (don't even get me started)
    -depending on how tight you do this, you might have skin taken off by yarn. No, I'm not kidding.
