#1: "A great excuse to avoid talking to anyone."

#2: "Weed cookies from the internet."


#1: "Incriminating Polaroid photos of party goer you are black mailing. To be left in a pile of LP records which you know the party goer will look through, thus bringing them further into your web of intrigue."

#2: "A rubber mask that resembles the face of the individual you intend to frame for your crimes. To be worn while staring down your victim from end of a long corridor."


#1: "Lack eye-patch, preferably leather, to make you look cool."

#2: "Socks - as well as a foot covering socks are useful for chilling beers while driving - just wet the sock and pop the can inside, then hang it out the window to cool in the breeze. Same can be done in a boat. Also useful for covering microphones in excessively windy conditions and transporting feisty crustaceans from water to BBQ."


#1: "My vape with extra mango liquid. I’m a freshly quit smoker & as soon as I see a cigarette my mouth starts watering. I need all the help I can get to resist the temptation, & sometimes the vape helps you to meet people because they are curious."

#2: "A best girlfriend. All I need to make a magical night is a girl friend with a spirit of adventure who wants to dance to the end of the rainbow and we can take care of each other."
