Suggestions for a bored college student

As a college sophomore i have entirely too much time on my hands. I would like to get a new hobby and suggestions would be most helpful. If it is any help, please note that I enjoy hiking trips, being outside in general, building things and creating mischief. I am pretty much computer illiterate as well.
Thanks All.

Around me it's mushroom-season, get a book out of the library and forage a breakfast?

I would be mildly terrified of dying self poisoning, much easier to identify the large edible fur bearing animals from the poisonous / dangerous types.
I did say to get a book, but while critters may be easier to identify, they're harder to catch and messier to prepare.

I don't trust books.
Nonsense, check out this picture from your average mushroom book. on the left is the deadly "Destroying Angel, on the right is the delicious "Paddy Straw" mushroom. As you can see, there are clear and easily discerned differences between poisonous and none poisonous mushrooms.

I know people who pick mushrooms, they know what they're looking for and are still alive.


Personally, I've no desire to hunt mushrooms, they give me the trots.

Court: Publisher Off Hook In Mushroom Poisoning July 14, 1991 Two people who nearly died after they ate wild mushrooms they had checked against pictures in a book cannot sue the book's publisher, a federal appeals court ruled. A publisher has ''no duty to investigate the accuracy of the contents of the book it publishes,'' the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Friday. Wilhelm Winter and Cynthia Zheng of Berkeley, Calif., almost died after eating Amanita death-cap mushrooms in 1988. The pair had looked up the mushrooms in The Encyclopedia of Mushrooms, published by G.P. Putnam's Sons.

Interesting stuff. I must look up hunting (i.e. killed) accidents again, some of them make you think about how people deal with hazards.

They're surprising low, about 8 injuries per 100,000 (all causes), and 1 death per 100,000.
