'Open Fire' Cooking
I believe the paragraph in reference to 'open fire' cooking is not only completely inaccurate but irrelevant to the subject at hand. Burning food actually renders it more unhealthy due to carcinogens and whatnot. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 07:15, 11 November 2010 (UTC)
Are Porter Blanchard and Arthur Stone silversmithing hobbyists, or professionals? I really really think that a list of famous hobbyists is inappropriate, and professionals certainly don't belong here, either. --MichaelTinkler
IMHO a new section under "Visual Arts and Design" called something like "Traditional Crafts". Included would be areas like silversmith, glass working, blacksmith, and woodworking.
Traditional visual arts:
Painting Drawing Sculpture Photography Crafts **HERE**
[Fashion design]? Graphic design [Interior decoration]? Crafts *HERE* (or maybe here) [Industrial design]?
I am not sure describing a hobby as spare-time is politically correct. I think we should describe it as recreational.
Isn't it important to add a section on "Importance of hobby in human life" - as it is commonly observed that people without a 'serious' hobby often die of boredom after they retire ;). Hobbies make life more meaningful and satisfying for many people. A section is needed.
Etymology of hobby
The etymology section for the word "hobby" seems very unsatisfactory to me. Why is a hobby horse called a hobby horse? Where does the hobby part come from?

Although they are mentioned, its made to seem as if they are only an alternative to hobbies. Video games are the hobby of many, I will construct an entry touching on the hobby of "video games". If there any logical disputes, make your claim. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Maikeruda (talk • contribs) 22:19, 6 February 2013 (UTC)
