Pinteresting! (Or Not)

I recently ‘joined’ Pinterest, another (self-serving) social media website wherein one chooses topics in which one has an interest (guns, humor, history, watches, pets for example), and pictures, articles, recipes, essays, things-for-sale appear in a hodge-podge of stuff from other members (aka PINS).  One may simply view them, expand them for more in-depth reading and/or comment on them.  PIN them to review later (as more are always being added.)  And, of course, add their own PINS to the group conversation!

The ultimate time waster!

Product Details

Undercover Bracelet
A useful tool for covert and undercover operators, those that travel abroad in unstable countries, or anyone at risk of being held unlawfully.
A leading federal law enforcement agency asked for a special emergency handcuff key for their undercover operatives.
The Undercover Bracelet is the result.
This unique handcuff key is designed to always be situated at the optimum location for access and deployment – right next to the wrist.
Disguised as a common “gummy bracelet”, this rubbery flexible bracelet won’t draw even a second glance when worn in most environments.
This device is completely non-metallic, even the key portion.
The key, which is permanently affixed to one end of the bracelet, serves as the connector joining the two ends.
The key is not visible when the bracelet is worn.

It is quickly accessed by just yanking on the bracelet, exposing the key.

The bracelet accommodates wrists up to 10″, and can be cut down to fit.

Weight: 0.2 oz.
Patented
Made in USA.
On Amazon – $18.47
On Pinterest – $9.99 !
And joining Pinterest is FREE!
(FTC – neither Pinterest or Amazon gave me anything.  Get you own key!)

  1. Yeah… I’ve been on Pinterest for a while now. An infinite group of rabbit holes to go down for days, weeks, months…

  2. My wife uses Pinterest. I don’t, but I had to comment on the cat picture:
    Several years ago I woke up thirsty in the middle of the night and remembered I had left a coffee cup full of water on the kitchen table. I went to the kitchen and turned on the light, where I discovered that our cat had drunk some of the water, then barfed in the cup. (Glad I turned on the light, huh?)
    The cat passed five years ago. I still miss him.
