All interesting points for sure. Since I have not been to India, and don't know if I will be able to go any time in the foreseeable future, I am stuck with these American "Indian" restaurants and recipes from the Internet (BBC, Epicurious, etc.).
I do like Mustard greens, so I may try that next time.
I think spinach and dill leaves are two most commonly available ones here. I have rarely seen fenugreek and never seen kenaf and roselle anywhere. If you can find brown chickpea leaves, that could also me used in food.
So my sister's "new" boyfriend is into Ghostbusters. As far as I'm concerned, those were a series of "meh" movies. I understand the "cult classic" thing, but this? I wasn't aware a "Ghostbusters club" was "a thing" at all.
His car's covered in Ghostbusters stickers, he owns a set of overalls like they do in the movies, and a backpack with flashing lights and the whole kit. He's driven from Canada to the States to get that backpack a few months ago, and then again last weekend apparently to get "a better one". Never mind the backpack, the expenses for the trip itself have got to have cost him a few hundred bucks (gas, meals, motel, money exchange, etc). His car's falling apart, so he's taken my sister's car for the trip. He's got a close to minimum wage dead-end job, no money, no ambition that I've ever heard him speak of. Every time he opens his mouth it's to say something about the comic book movie du jour. Not a great conversation piece for myself, and much less my folks.
This is a 50+ year old grown up man with his own grown-up kids...I was going to try to explain the cosplay culture to my dad, but I decided to let him fend for himself.
Where was I heading with this? Not sure. Why Ghostbusters? I don't see the appeal. As per my subject line...don't question hobbies, I guess...

Yeah...problem is, he's dragging my sister into it. She is old enough to make her own decisions...but I have at times questioned her decision-making process. After all, she is dating the guy (and thinks everything's peachy).
It probably could've been anything.
It's not so much about Ghostbusters as it is about having something to keep you busy.
It's pretty cool to know and collect everything about whatever.
Maybe it's Ghostbusters because he saw it at the movies when he was a kid and back then it truly blew his mind.
If he had seen Star Wars that day he would've been into Star Wars.
I get it though, it's the fun of collecting and the joy when you find a new rare item that you can add to your collection.
People do it with Star Wars, LOTR, Harry Potter, so why not Ghostbusters?
An ex-coworker collected crane models, I collect music and film (although I collect a lot less than I used to).
Being a deadbeat probably has nothing to do with it.
