The obvious drawback to bear bells is the problem of securely attaching them to the bears.

If you're standing behind him on the cables and you get bored waiting, you'd have something to do.

I was thinking that this outfit would ameliorate the fall risk, but certainly would help pass time while stuck in line because someone has "frozen" on the cables.

It's either for malaria or in case you find a bottle of gin.

Note that weaponry against predators has been provided for Chickon Boo: a bundle of Starbucks Stir Stix!

I've heard those can be deadly. Though often it's the user that is killed.

And they last as long as an MRE - forever. A friend of mine has a 15 year old Twinkie. It looks the same as the day he bought it.

Mine don't last longer than a few minutes.Llama

I'm thinking, with the knife blade and saw teeth on opposing edges, the use as a paddle in an inflatable boat would be risky business. Also, they did not mention using it as a dinner plate, for crushing grapes during wine-making, any use as a dental tool, or for watch repair.

By the way, the reason that we call them flashlights (they are called torches in almost all of the rest of the world) is that batteries were originally so short-lived that these light sources were built with a momentary-contact button rather than a switch (so that the light was on only when the button was being pressed) in order to conserve power. One would only intermittently activate the light as they walked along rather than shining it continuously. I think that they stopped making the momentary-contact versions sometime around 1950.

They certainly still had the buttons on flashlights in the 50s. But there was also a slide switch.

The chrome plated Ray-O-Vac two D-Cell had a slide and button. We always thought the button was for sending Morse Code.
