    I bought the first season - it was funny how cheesy it was after all these years. Roger was the guy with the ball bearings - second season with Mel Profit.

    By the way it was two 3/4" ball bearings - sorry for the lack of clarity.

    Got the 1gb thumb that GreenLed spoke of ... this a great bargain for $25! I would say that for size I would only carry the 1gb in the plastic wallet credit card case, while the sony vault I would carry in just a mini ziplock due to its overall more sturdy construction.

    Yet more toys for my wallet. Weeeeeeeeeee!

    I carry a tube of Binaca breath spray. It's my only addiction outside of buying EDC items. In addition to the obvious purpose, it can be used as the poor man's mace. When combined with a lighter it makes a nice flame.

    Mini-flamethrower! Now I'm going to find what aerosols work best, and EDC them!

    My primary hobby is street photography, so here's my non-standard EDC item...

    [​IMG]

    Canon 10D
    Canon 35 f/1.4L
    Op/Tech Camo Pro Loop Strap (one-off prototype) with Op/Tech Memory Card Pouches x2 on the strap, 3/8" webbing system connectors, Spro #6 Heavy Swivels, and Hama triangle split rings
    CamDapter Double-sided Arca-Swiss plate w/spirit level taped on for overhead shooting.
    County Comm SO-LED (white)
    Self-addressed dog tag on Spro #4 swivel
    Tritium glowstickie (Merkava's DIY style)

    The strap is gaffers-taped to correct length. I've also used a spare set of 3/8" webbing system connectors to allow me to mount it to my EDC backpack, a Deuter Race X Air 1.

    My BOB is a Domke J-3 ;D

    Pics of the wallet carrier? the newegg link only shows the extra USB adapter.

    LT, it's a Loreo Lens-in-a-Cap. It's not that great as a lens, but it sure is sharper than the Canon lens cap that preceded it!

    Here's an odd one for you. I've never seen these in the U.S. but here in Japan, at least at my local supermarket, they are common. They just keep the plastic shopping bags from cutting into your fingers when they are loaded down. I usually keep one or two in my EDC pack because they always come in useful.

    I have to do some searching online for those. Those are great. Such a simple and brilliant idea. When I do a commissary run, I easily have 20 bags.

    My mother had a set of those she got as a grocery store freebie back in the 70's, I always thought they were a great idea. I have a full size carabiner for my keychain & I use it the same way, grocery bags get clipped on & I hold the carabiner, far more comfortable than 6 or 8 heavy bags cutting into you.

    Yesterday, I carried a whole box of them with assorted shapes of blades :-X
    I think that they'd be a nice item to have in the car or truck, but I wouldn't keep one on my person.
