Being a prepper I carry all my essentials 24/7.

My everyday carry:

[a list of gadgets]
I saw some forums where in their signatures people put a list of their possessions (on a watch forum that would be their Rolexes, on a computer forum their gaming rig precious guts. I don't disapprove it, I'm sure I was like that when I was single, without any serious obligations and perhaps 13 :-)

I have a special Super Rolex watch that I bought in Thailand but the seller assured me it is original. It doubles up as a flame thrower and as a mini helicopter. At least that's what the seller told me but I haven't tried it out yet. The instructions are in Chinese. My socks have thin strips of semtex woven into them, which is useful when I forget my apartment key. I also have a miniature aircraft carrier implanted in my forearm and a nuclear submarine in my right nostril. These two might come in useful should Iran ever declare war on me.

I also have a GA and a Coop supercard, which are useful for when I need to pretend to be normal.

It will not. If you eat a lot of hummus.

Toothpaste! Toothbrush! Hand-gel!

I always eat bigly hummus.

When I was living on a little island in the Pacific I sometimes ate humuns too. When they got ship wrecked.

Some years ago, I was the most sober friend in the group, so I was voted to drive. This is already a miracle but the night was still young.

10 mins later......police roadside control. I got really nervous, the police asked for drivers license and car docs. The car owner swiftly passed me the car registration. I reached for my wallet and started pulling out the halbtax, coop supercard, migro cumulus, lots of supermarket receipts.....until I finally found the license. The police guy was watching the whole show. I was about to pull the license out from the wallet, but the Swiss flag was already visible. The police guy just returned me the car registration and made the gesture that we could leave.

I guess having a wallet full of supermarket cards and receipts disguises oneself as a law-abiding citizen
