This has pretty much every feature you could want on a hiking pack. Stretchy side pockets for water bottles, a spacious main compartment with an internal mesh pocket for small items, small exterior pocket, trekking pole and ice axe attachments, a spot for a hydration bladder and small mesh pockets on the shoulder straps that are handy for stashing a phone or snack
This is the embodiment of “we don’t grow up, our toys just get bigger and more expensive”
This is the best car drying towel out there…A waffle-weave microfiber is the best material to dry your car with. Amazing how much water they can hold while providing a streak-free finish

Originally I thought headphone stands were kind of dumb but they totally declutter your desk and prevent your headphones from unecessary scruff and damage
Best book on negotiation written by a FBI hostage negotatior. Full of great tips, practical examples and surprising points about negotiating which can be used in business, school, or any casual situation
A few points I’ve remembered:
– Every negotiation starts with a “no”. If you start with questions leading to “yes” (Do you want to help the world? Do you think we should stop animal abuse? …), the other party will go into defense mode. By getting them to disagree early on, you’ll establish boundaries and when they then say “yes”, they really mean it (commitment yes).
– Empathy is important. You can’t negotiate without understanding what (and why) the other party wants.

This stuff is way better than duct tape and beats it in all tests of sturdiness, stickiness and water resistance
