When I was reading the reviews some people were saying they wear these instead of regular socks. I tried it but didnít quite like my toes being bare in my work shoes for whatever reason. I mainly wear them when Iím walking around the house and when Iím sleeping.

Chipotles in adobo don't seem to go bad either. Put your leftovers in a tupperware and they just hang out. I have half a can in my fridge for over a year.

Bought a Belkin 12w charger and USB cable to use for my ipad and iphone - increased speed to fully recharge dramatically vs 5w I had been using.

They're made with merino wool insoles, you don't even wear socks (the shoes can go in the washing machine and the insoles can be replaced for $15). It makes me sad to have to wear other shoes for even a day at this point.
These shoes are great but after a week of wearing them I already feel like I have to replace the insoles (not gross but just enough to have a bit of odor). Imagine wearing the same socks every day without washing.

The wool would make me itch, but I bet alternating two pair and putting absorbent in the shoes not being worn would go along way.

Re: What's the best thing you bought recently?

I just bought a cool little reading light, charges like a cell phone. 14 bucks off Amazon, pretty damn spiffy.

Found out about it from those old geezers in Lounge book thread:

Just looked into it, looks like rokmba i7+, empties itself and you only need to change the dirt out once every 30 vacuum cycles. It's also like 1300 Canadian

I wish I could take credit for finding them. Was browsing another site, and somebody else recommended them to me in lieu of another pair that was on sale. I went through the reviews, and decided to give them a shot.

The music quality is fairly nice. I find 4 hours to be accurate. They give you a little plastic case of rubber ear thingamabobs that you can change to try different fits out.

I've worked out in them, but nothing really too intense like running. So, I couldn't say for sure. I mean, I can run around my house, and they won't fall out. But every now and then they will popup. I also tend to forget that I have them in.

As far as motorcycle helmet, they stick a bit far out of the ears. They're like Frankenstein bolts, but at ear level. So, it would be dependent on how much clearance your helmet has around the ears.

This indoor security cam



This thing great and is super cheap. It has motion detection that is fully customizable for sensitivity and location of motion, sound detection, phone notifications when it's triggered, free 12-second cloud storage that captures detections, and a really well-made app to control it all. You can add an SD card to get full-time recording that you can review whenever. Oh and the video quality is very good as well.

Re: What's the best thing you bought recently?

Power cord would be an issue for me. I bought the Blink 3-camera system, with 3 battery powered cameras (sez good for 2 years)(varies by usage). WiFi enabled, free storage for motion events, etc. Can recommend.
