Urban Titanium And The Trouble With Women…
I’ll get to the “Urban” titanium part in just a minute…
But before I do – I’d like to share a quick story with you (feel free to skip over this next bit).
If you’ve read the last few blog posts I’ve written, then you’ll understand I’ve recently discovered (at the ripe old age of 32) I know absolutely nothing.
Someone said to me in the comments it’s called “maturity”. Maybe. I certainly don’t feel mature.
Anyway, here’s what this is about:
Just as I’ve been discovering I know nothing about everything. I’ve also discovered how much of an UNFAIR ADVANTAGE women have again us guys (or at least me!).
Here’s what happened…
I friend of mine asked if I would like help buying “house stuff”. Well, more specifically, bed sheets and such (because it’s getting into winter here in New Zealand and the houses here have no insulation whatsoever). It gets damn cold and there’s not much you can do about it.
I’m wandering around this shop with my friend and she’s asking me questions like, “Do you have one of these *pointing at some sort of blanket* already?” and “Do you have any of these *pointing at some other blankety-looking things*?”
I’m just nodding and agreeing and, to be honest, just wanting to get out the shop.
It’s all a blur…
Suddenly find myself outside with a trolley full of stuff and a significant dent in my bank account.
And I’m just standing there in a daze wondering, “what the hell just happened?!”
I wanted a blanket… maybe two …and come out with half the store!
How do women do it?
What Jedi-Mind-Tricks do they use to make this kind of stuff happen?
The only thing I can come up with is… they simply have some sort of unfair advantage against us (or maybe it’s just me?).
Let’s talk titanium!
Personally I’m not a big user of prybars. Yes, I’ve made one (and it’s been ridiculously popular at that). And I’ve almost finished another (coming soon…).
And I think one of the reasons is that they are generally a little large for what I like to carry.
So, just as an experiment, I made a super-small pry-bar for “urban” use (i.e. it’s super-small enough to carry on you keychain all the time).
I think it looks pretty smart.
Not sure if there will be much interest. But, as always, if there is enough interest… then I’ll make it for you. 🙂
Oh, one more thing…
The size of it. I forgot to put something next to it to show you the scale. But it’s around 55mm (2″) in length. It’s pretty much the same size dimensions as the HangKey in my recent Kickstarter Project here.
