Today's weirdest idea
This has been popping into my mind lately: Looking for a new hobby, and do not mind freaking people out? Start collecting DNA!

It's basically the perfect hobby: you collect something, it's free, every item you collect is unique and it doesn't take up much space nor time. Start asking friends/celebrities/politicians for a hair instead of an autograph. When you in some years can decode their genomes, you will be able to sequence the DNA on your own computer, going from a collection of hairs in plastic bags to computer files detailing everything about a person. Then you can clone them and keep them in your basement, or share them on your favorite p2p network.
