Considering my obsession with a good bug-out bag I try and think of everything I “could” need when SHTF. I recently ran in to these awesome compressed towels, or as I like to call them Compressed Coin Toilet Paper. In reality they are much more than just TP. You can get 200 pieces for just $23 and they come in convenient 50-pack bags which have individually wrapped packs of TP coins. This particular brand is called the

If you live in a household that doesn’t allow shoes, like mine, you quickly realize some people don’t like taking their shoes off. I’m not going to get into the reasons you should/shouldn’t take your shoes off when coming in from the outside. To each their own. So for the shoeless amongst us… there are two options; take off the shoes, or put on a plastic shoe cover. Shoe covers are great but not the most fun to put on over shoes. Enter the Kwik...

Male pattern baldness. Yep, it visited me very early in life. I think I wore a hat for 10 years straight. Now I shave my head. For other guys trying to manage this condition, quit doing the combover and shave your head. Today.

Just thinking about ticks makes my skin crawl. When I was a kid we played in the woods for hours at a time and inevitably someone ended up with a tick or two. To this day ticks still freak me out.

The Tick Twister comes with two different sizes depending on how big and disgusting your offending tick is. By twisting the tick out instead of squeezing it you reduce the risk of infection. Why not be ready for you, or your pets, next tick encounter with the Tick Twister ($10)? (more…)

The never ending search for the hangover cure continues. I would say about 99% of the “hangover cures” you see sold online and at liquor stores are bogus. Time will tell if this one The Hangover Drink will actually work. With that said, their approach is a bit different than the others currently available. The Hangover Drink...

There are quite a few options available for monitoring your heart rate but this might be the best. The Kardia Portable EKG ($99) can get a medical-grade EKG in about 30 seconds by simply placing your fingertips on the sensors. Great for a quick check to see if your heart rhythm is normal of if atrial fibrillation is defected. The sensor not only monitors your heart rate (via an iOS or Android app) but it can also store it for sharing with your doctor. Video of the Kardia...

Reading glasses are just like your camera. The best pair of reading glasses is the ones you have with you. The ThinOPTICS Keychain Reading Glasses ($25) are so tiny and strong that you will always have them handy. They are made of an ultra-flexible titanium alloy and have a nitinol bridge (10x more elastic that spring steel). These keychain reading glasses are available in low range (+1.50), mid range (+2.0),...
