We all have hobbies. Some of us knit. Some of us make macaroni pictures. Others compulsively search the web looking at million dollar condos and their floorplans. Some of just make jam from the local bounty of seasonal, organic fruits.
In Little Hollywood that previously-almost-unheard-of-but-charming neighborhood tucked away near Candlestick/Monster Park, one neighbor makes explosives.

And probably blew his hubcap collection to smithereens.
