We've linked many times to the Everyday Carry (EDC) blog, essentially an annotated photogallery of the gadgetry that folks carry with them. Every day. I do enjoy the site but some of the images remind me of when I was 12 and would neatly lay out my shuriken, balisong, Maglite, carabiner, sunglasses, Swiss Army knife, and other "weapons" to act out my own 1980s action film "gear up" scene. In fact, as our Rob points out, the audio in this clip should be the official soundtrack for the EDC blog. From EDC's mission statement:
Everyday Carry, or EDC, generally refers to small items or gadgets worn, carried, or made available in pockets, holsters, or bags on a daily basis to manage common tasks or for use in unexpected situations or emergencies. In a broader sense, it is a lifestyle, discipline, or philosophy of preparedness.EDC
