Ever sat at your desk at times and stared into the sky, wondering just how your life would have turned out if you had decided to join the army or police force? Perhaps you could be an undercover agent for the government by now, being suited up to the nines and yet carrying a false identity as you infiltrate one of the world’s most notorious gangs, gathering crucial intelligence along the way. Having a video or voice recorder on hand would certainly be useful, and Q-See knows this. Which is why all of you spy wannabes out there might be interested to pick up the $99.99 QPen DVR by Q-See.
Have you ever had a clogged pipe or needed to get a look into any other tiny space that you can’t see into properly? You can whip out a flashlight and try to form a clearer picture of what’s going on, but if it’s out of sight or too small to see, you can’t react appropriately to correct any issues. This applies to a great number of things such as pipes, vents, car problems, home care, and more.
When walking at night, are you the type of person who waits for their eyes to adjust to the light, or do you prefer to have a flashlight with you? Both feel a bit ominous at times in completely different ways, mainly because we can’t see a full picture of everything that’s in front of us. If you could see it all whether it’s day or night, would you want to?
When you think of a lighter, usually products from Zippo and Bic brands flash in your mind. Of course, those all use a liquid fuel that either needs to be replenished, or you just have to buy a new lighter. It would be nice if we could just plug our lighter in instead of using butane, but if there’s not enough reason for us to do so, we’ll likely stay with the same ole ball and chain since we’re used to it.
Hailing from an area where there are more cows and cornfields than people, I have seen duct tape used in a variety of ways. While keeping the front bumper of your car on and fixing pipes with the silver sticky magic paper may seem uncouth to some, let me tell you that the stuff is going to outlast most of mankind. It does come with a connotation of being for rednecks that is generally unfavorable, but it is and has been a lifesaver countless times.
There are some practices that we no longer view as a necessity. How many of your friends are expert cooks, blacksmiths, or falconers? The only times we really consider picking up a new skill set is usually in a video game. If you wish you could level up in real life, then picking up some neat skills we usually thought were reserved for spies or characters in fantastical worlds might be just the way to do it.
I’ve reached a point in my life where I worry a lot! Sure, I worry about my soon-to-be-teenaged daughter, I worry about my health, and of course, the well being of my parents. There are a million ways to keep tabs on my kid, and I tend to be pretty responsible about myself… but my parents are never going to wear one of those “alert” necklaces, nor are they going to take kindly to my checking up on them…
If you haven’t caught on by now, I’m a bit of a fan of multi-tools. There’s always some history to why it was made, as the creator likely had a set of specific problems, made the product to fix them, and decided it was useful enough to sell. There are hundreds of thousands of different multi-functional tools out there, but your situation is the deciding factor for which one will fit you the best.
If you prefer to take care of things on your own, the idea of being left helpless is likely one of sheer terror. While it’s good practice to think of what-if scenarios, you don’t want to go too far overboard preparing for every possible thing you can think of. Using your logical mind, you should take in your typical surroundings, and think of what tools you might need so you can make sure you always have those specific tools at the ready.
When you walk out your front door, you never know what you’re going to face that day. Maybe the zombie apocalypse will finally happen, or you have to save a kitten from a tree, or stop a flaming bus full of orphans from careening off the road and shepard the children to safety, becoming the town hero. It may be far-fetched, but it’s not impossible.
