What's a Good Hobby for a Teenage Boy?

My son is driving me crazy. His bike tire is broken, his Playstation is broken, We don't have cable.... He's tired of watching dvd's. He doesn't like to play sports. He doesn't even like to read. All he thinks about is playing with fire! He's normally a good kid, but he has been too interested in fire since he was just a couple years old. But last night as I was sleeping, he was watching Youtube videos on how to make your own fireworks! He also learned how to make a blow dart, and made one, and was blowing sewing needles at the ceiling all night! He didn't even sleep! He woke me up at 6 am and asked me if we could go to Walmart and get some Gun Powder!!! He was obsessed with this video he saw on youtube and he really felt like he was an expert after watching someone make some kind of explosive firework thing. I really need to get him interested in something ELSE! What do other teenage boys do at 14 or 15 years of age? What did YOU do when you were that age?
