Speaking of soup... 

 

Thursday, September 13: Do you carry with you, at all times, tools sufficient to open a can of soup? (Or other canned goods)

 

 

No, but I rarely buy soup in cans anymore, let alone cans that don't have a pull tab. As for other canned goods I still do not carry an opening device. Though I do have a bottle opener on my keychain and will probably add a second one soon.

Nooo... :down:

 

I work in a federal building. We're not allowed to carry any of the fun tools. Not even for self defense walking home from work at 1am.

[Imagines @NebulousMissy taking out a criminal with a can opener.]

 

You go girl!

I carry a very small pocket knife. I used to use it for dealing with staples when I was a Data Transcriber.

 

Now I use the scissors for random stuff, as needed. Been through security numerous times without issue. Then again, it's tiny.

 

Mind, my current area still has Exacto knives from when we were literally cutting and pasting (with glue) to develop training material to be sent to print.

Yes.

Unless I'm in an airport, I always have a knife and a Leatherman.

Same here.

Except I don't fly and have my normal assortment of tools on me when providing transportation and porter services, right up to the handoff to airline personell or the security line.

Plus the lighter I have carried since my Navy days, even though I haven't smoked in circa 18 years.

And yes, it is a zippo style lighter and I do keep it operational.

Sometimes it gets  used to light off the grill.

This question come from @Crowley

 

Wednesday, September 12: What sort of supplies do you keep stocked for disaster situations?

 

Distilled water (for cpap, but water's water.), and I by way too much canned/dry food at costco... so there's a bunch of that.

 

Gonna get really sick of soup and beans... but I'll live for a few days.

They let you carry a pen, right?  That can be deadlier than a knife.  Grab the pen in your hand and punch it in like you would a knife.  Makes a ragged hole that is harder to stich up.

I have a 'bug-out' bag in my trunk. Set of work clothes, set of sleep clothes, small blanket, first aid kit, flashlight, baby wipes and basic self care stuff (toothbrush, deodorant etc.). I occasionally get snowed in at work.

 Technically, yes. Though it would be neither graceful or clean.

No, which as a supposedly always prepared farm boy makes me sad. I tend to leave my knives and tools at home when travelling.
