Hikaru Dorodango aka Dirt Polishing

Believe it or not people polish dirt for a hobby. People will make mud balls from scratch and then proceed to dry out all of the moisture in it. Following this they will coat the outer layer with very fine dirt; working it with their hands and continually polishing it. Eventually you will polish it enough so that it will shine — and make a great display piece for your window!




People on youtube or just for fun like to impersonate animals by trying to mimic certain animal noises as close to the real thing as possible.

However, there are actually contests around the world specifically for competitive mooing. Typically the contests are held in rural areas where farm land is more of the norm — go figure. With catchy competition titles like Moo-la-pa-looza located in Wisconsin you can expect to see grown men and women in cow costumes performing their best “moo’s” on stage.




No, this isn’t about heroine but the literal meaning this time. Many people actively engage in trainspotting. Basically, they watch for trains. Once they see the train go by they are sure to record the number of the train, along with the model and other characteristics. They go from region to region and gain a sense of competition by essentially “collecting” different trains by what they’ve seen.

Tape Art

Creativity and artwork go hand in hand, but this is definitely something most people have not heard of. People are now ripping the magnetic tape out of old cassettes and cutting and manipulating it to make various portraits and pictures. Despite this being rather obscure it is actually somewhat popular and “cool” to a select group of individuals who make some rather impressive displays out there.

Penis Exercises

I bet most guys wish that their manhood was a little more..ugh..manly? Well, there is actually a somewhat popular sub-culture of penis enhancement dudes and websites that perform various penile exercises in the hopes of getting a bigger dick. Yea…really. One such popular exercise in their repertoire is known as jelqing — which is where you perform a milking like motion back and forth along the “shaft” to assumably cause penile growth. Other popular methods include using rather expensive devices such as penis extenders. These are devices used for elongation of the penile shaft, and there are many websites out their about this. Heck, just check out this review of penimaster pro that we found. The guy running the site talks about his “gains” and experiences using that penis extender.


competitive dog grooming

Competitive Dog Grooming

We all know that people are crazy about their pets, and that dog grooming is pretty normal. However, many people participate in competitive dog grooming; which isn’t just to make their pets look as clean or spiffy as possible, but rather to make them look as stupid as possible as well. Seeing pets that look like ninja turtles, pokemon, or various animals is not uncommon. The most popular organization that handles these contests is the National Dog Groomers Association of America, however, other organizations are forming as well.
