3 Totems: purple, red, and little yellow. They're too shiny for pics right now but I should be getting some scratches on them today and I might put up some pics tonight.

That looks like a sort of woodworking clamp. Pretty neat either way in my book. All I got was a beyblade and some chocolate.

Cool design. How does it mount?

Sweet!  Is that just two wood clamps drilled onto plywood?  Is there a way you can hang it/lock it to actually weight a jam?

It's the SqueezeBox from here but without the climbing holds attached (I use the BeastMaker for hanging on holds). So yeah, basically two wood clamps drilled into plywood, although it's a little more complicated than that because the wood clamps have to be sawed off and then getting the screws to thread back in is fairly difficult. 

It's gonna have four bolts for hanging off a pull-up bar with webbing, and a fifth bolt on the bottom for a pulley.

I'm moving soon, so I'm not going to bother hanging it at my current place. I'll post a picture once it's mounted.

52 quart ozark trail yeti knock of cooler. It was around 100$. Yeti equivalent is over 350$. Initial thoughts are that it is very well built. Just bought 20lbs of cubed ice and 18 sparkling waters to give it a trial run.

But Marc, If you mix the Topical Ointment White and the Void of Existential Anguish Black then you’ll have TWO Moral Ambiguity Grays...

I bet the Bong Water and the Court Ordered Urine Test would make an interesting color...

Damn son, if your bong water looks like that then it might be time to change the water. That shit's nasty man. That being said, I've seen bong water that was closer to "void of existential anguish black" than brown.

If you mix the green and yellow you have court ordered urine bulimia sample lime. Wish I had got some crayons for Christmas. I love crayons. Cool medium to work with.

All I got was a new sailboat. Rapa Nui here we come!
