And talking of odd hobbies, what about this:
Brilliant idea and typical of the sideways look at the world taken by the comic.
Now, when I see a comic that I like, I might bookmark it, or send a link to friends, but the followers of xkcd went that extra mile. They brought the comic to life as can be seen on the Chesscoaster page. I especially like the picture about a third of the way down the page where are playing Jenga!
