Exotac NanoStriker

1

All-in-one firestarter (you provide the kindling).

2

From the Wall Street Journal:

3

"Unscrewing the ends reveals a ferrocerium rod and a tungsten carbide striker."

7

"Just drag the striker across the rod with a decent amount of pressure to unleash serious Fourth of July-like sparks."

4

"Hold it over the tinder of your choice (dried leaves, lint, or cotton balls are recommended) to start a blaze on the go."

5

"The NanoStriker works even when wet, and each rod is good for about 1,000 uses — plenty to get you through the summer with enough left over to make it worth stashing in your emergency-supply kit."

8

$23.75.

Underpants Band-Aids

31EoSv6DDYL

What took so long?

From websites:

...........................

Don't let an injury leave you with your pants down — cover it up with some tighty whities.

Underpants Bandages are sure to give your modest oww-ie the privacy and protection it deserves.

Your junk may be covered in boxers, but your scrape or cut deserves snugger protection.

In brief, you can cover your butt with your favorite underwear, but only your minor injuries deserve Underpants Bandages.

You'll be the envy of all your friends when your wounds are... dressed... for success.

...........................

Collectible tin of 12 brief-shaped band-aids: 53 cents.

Tony Kornheiser, call your office: you have a package... as it were.
