"From One Second To The Next" — Werner Herzog's 2013 film about texting while driving might well save someone's life (if they're not watching it while driving...)

YouTube caption:

Acclaimed filmmaker Werner Herzog wants to bring an end to the scourge of texting while driving once and for all — and he just might do it.
In a powerful 35-minute public service announcement entitled From "One Second to the Next," Herzog hauntingly and painfully documents the tragic testimonies of individuals who have shattered lives — and have had their lives shattered — as a direct result of texting and driving.
"There's a completely new culture out there," Herzog told the Associated Press. "I'm not a participant of texting and driving — or texting at all — but I see there's something going on in civilization which is coming with great vehemence at us."

You might need to throw in some hex bits for specific projects but otherwise the Geekey has you covered for almost all of your everyday repair needs. 

As if that wasn't enough, the hexagon can also serve as a smoking bowl, since the shaft of the key has been hollowed out to serve as a pipe.
