I've mentioned this in passing, so yeah- other than pyro, what else do you enjoy?

I enjoy watching boxing, I also enjoy studying and researching the paranormal or "Forteana" . As such I'm often at boxing matches, and I try to get invloved with (serious) paranormal research, such as trips to Chingle Hall ( Britain's most haunted house, now Borely Rectory has gone.)
OK, interest in fireworks to be resumed in the spring. It usually is. ;)

All my hobbies revolve around pyro in some way. Weather it's actually construting fireworks of building machines, like a 5 strand flat quickmatch machine i'm working on at the moment, and i have a interest in quantum machanics, string theory and the like ..

I'm currently restoring a harpsichord & building a PC based pipe organ. Also pretty much finished a Strowger telephone exchange & always restoring and collecting old telephones.

You can see some of it here if you are interested:

School takes a lot of time but I'm soon finished! This summer I'll hopefully ne a Master in Molecular Biology :D
My girlfriend also takes a lot of time. Or should I say, I give her a lot of time.
Photographing is also fun. You can watch my pictures at http://www.flickr.co...otos/rasmus_83/. If the link is dead try searching the nich under people.
I also like cooking and baking, computers to some extent and exercising.

Yea that's about it excluding all small sub pastimes not worth mentioning. :)

Very nice, that must be a serious labour of love considering its original condition. So how long have you been working on that for?
Phew that was close.
