“Knicks and dull edges are abominations, so use knives and hatchets for nothing but they were made for.” – Horace Kephart, 1917
I've recently started buying blind package toys. Mostly Walking Dead, but last night I picked up a couple Lego minifigures. This guy has been in my pocket ever since! He makes me smile! That's something that doesn't happen very often.
...Just an excitable boy.
Of course family and friends make me happy.
But if it has to be an object... My Zippos kinda make me happy. Idk. Especially when it's cold. I like having them in my hand.
And also my Smartphone makes me happy. I mean when you really have it with you all the time. Your Smartphone helps you out a lot all the time when you think about it. Or it just lets you have a little fun with games or something.

I recently realized how much terrible weather makes me happy. It keeps most of the idiots off the road & out of the way. The only time I don't like terrible weather is when I'm expecting a package!
my pocket knives make me happy especially my Ka-bar bull dozier folder. I love watches and can't wait to get some more. My fiance makes me happy I don't know what I would do without her. I love rainy days, which is unfortunate because I moved to the middle of the desert last year.
that is not a thing ! That is a family member !
He's a family member alright. Spoiled like the rest of them.
Things that go bang, things that cut, things that make lotsa light, things that play music, and things that tell time.
There are a couple things that make me happy. The first is the feeling of a firearm in the waistband. To Quote Clint Smith, "Carrying a firearms isn't comfortable, its Comforting." Second is a nice pour of Johnnie Walker Black. Goes down smooth without any bite. The feel of a firearm, any firearm, recoiling against me. My martial arts belt, reminds me how far I've come, and how far I have to go, even as a Black belt.
I consider happiness derived from or the direct result of having or desiring an object to be an abject form of happiness. What happens when one no longer is in possession of that object or the desire lost because of a transference to another object? Will the loss last? Is the happiness binary or sinusoidal with one object gradually losing its ability to provide happiness while another gradually gaining at the same time so that the negative excursion of one effectively cancels the positive excursion of the other? Are there multiple objects that continually compete for that happiness? How is one object allowed that crescendo and is it simultaneous with another or several others? Objects are subjects and subject to repeal on that continuum of happiness with the loss of appeal.
Did I obfuscate that?!
"Success is getting what you want, Happiness is wanting what you get!"
One of my colleagues always quotes this. Wise man indeed!
Amazing. Around here, the worse it gets, the more people rationalize some excuse for having to be out in it.
Makes me happy? Not much. Things I like; a decent pen. Something that writes good, and has a good cap that snaps on. Ive got Sharpie pen. There's something satisfying about that click of the lid. Same with a locking knife. Opening it, and having the lock snap. Same as the pen. There's not much I carry day to day for fun, I'm still looking for that one cool thing though...
I don't seek happiness I seek peace, other than my family my Jeep gives me the most peace whether I'm fixing it or driving it.
Enjoying my pipes gives me peace.
If we're talking specifically objects (bc truly what makes me happy aren't objects) I would say besides my Sebbie that I just got, edc gear that doesn't cost much (many call it budget gear or value gear) but performs really well makes me happy. Saddleback wallets, gshocks, ontario rats, Microstream's (to name a few)- all of these items can be had for cheap and work superbly well and can last you a long time. That makes me happy
I have a small collection of objects relating to my daughters. My oldest daughter's crib-walkers (first shoes), a smiley face foam ball thing that my youngest used to play with until gifting it to me when she thought I was having a sad day, etc. I keep a bunch of them displayed on a shelf next to bed.
These bring happiness by giving me physical anchors to loving memories.
