Ethnobotany.

Nah, not really. I make music and graphics whenever I'm not programming..but for my games, so I guess they don't count!

I used to do flameworking as a hobby (making stuff with glass and a giant torch, not spitting fire lol) but that got really expensive and it sucked working with that stuff in a shed next to a propane and oxygen tank (effectively a bomb and a torpedo) so I sold everything!

Aside from that I occasionally play drums, guitar, and bass. I was in a few metal bands for a while but then I found FL Studio [:B

I'm planning on starting a salt water aquarium and getting a peacock mantis shrimp, but that's also reeeally expensive!!

I don't really have a non-game related hobby at the moment. I'm either playing games or making games. I also follow a few different Let's Play's so sometimes I'm even watching other people play games :oops:.

But I'd like to get into painting with acrylics when I can afford the materials.

I'd also like to make puppets. Like cool muppet-style puppets. No, I'm not kidding, I think that would be fun as hell.

I design small houses and ride adventure bikes. I love compact architecture and spend a ridiculous amount of time designing. if architecture wasn't such a volitile and time consuming career, that's where I could be.

Adventure biking... well, anyone whose ridden a motorcycle knows how incredibly dangerous and life threatening the death machines are... but also how exhilarating and freeing they are.

Those are awesome, Tom. I commissioned my friend to make me an "Angry Grenade," but she moved to Australia and I lost contact with her before she finished. I still want my Angry Grenade.

I too don't do much apart from making things that related to game development.

I draw sometimes but I am a horrible artist.
Write short stories when I have nothing else to do.
Read some psychological comics(Liar Game, 13 Club etc).

I plan to learn some video editing some day.

And speaking of drawing I did this yesterday night 4 AM on my computer table -
