I have bought a couple Cold Steel Voyager knives that are a straight edge (not serrated blade) and they are a nice every day carry knife. The blade shape does hamper utility a little.

A good review of these knives.

Overall recommended if you need a serrated edge in this case.

What are "(2) Extra-strength non-aspirin tablets"? They're not aspirin, and so they are .... ?

Non-aspirin indicates acetaminophen tablets; it's generic Tylenol.

I purchased the Stanley lunchbox last time it was up, I love it. Enough room for sandwich, pickle, yogurt and a small bag of chips. Stylish, rugged and only $10.

Wooters wooting wootfully wootlessly, woot.

Generally the cheap first aid kits are on sale because one of the drugs is close to expiration. Since there's a 90 day Woot warranty, I would assume it's at least that long. The drugs are generally still good for a while after that, and the bandages don't expire.

Just got my delegate in. Very nice knife, though it rattles a bit, it's apparently supposed to do that. It's a very nice size and the assisted opening is quite good. IMO a good buy.

Agree on the Delegate, it's actually moved into my fave EDC spot. You might have to work with it a bit to loosen it up some (or just general use) as some of them are a bit tight, but once it loosens up just a bit it works like a charm!

My Delegate Gentleman was put through the wash today. Now the locking mechanism no longer functions and part of the handle is loose. Disappointing.

The Looxcie 2 has OK reviews on Amazon:

What I want to know is what other people here think of it? How is it as a Bluetooth headset? Will it do voice dialing and mute with a button push?

I'm gonna guess you're gonna need to tighten some bolts and give it some more oil, otherwise CRKT shoudl have a lifetime warranty. Washing Machines are pretty brutal environments. I wouldn't consider the Delegate a very "tough" knife, it is pretty though.

I like the Stanley lunch box, but how about a snapshot of the inside?

Also, the liner being removable is nice for cleaning, but does it rattle around? Their selling point of it being easily recyclable makes me think they are supposed to be disposable which I don't like.

I bought 2 of the battery operated flares, and they did not work!! :0(

I have bought at least 10 sets of the flares throughout the past months and they all worked - HOWEVER - nearly all of them are DIFFICULT to get to work. Make sure the batteries are in correctly - then, twist and turn in all ways and they all eventually worked. Just give it more effort.
I'm the "Safety Person" in my neighborhood and I like to give one flare to each of the families near me if they will listen to my Emergency Preparedness information from time to time. I don't want them knocking on my door during when TSHTF, so I try to prep them to be ready on their own. These flares can be used to signal the ambulance/police if you need to call 911. Just put it on your porch or front window.

My 10 cents...
