Top Left - Right:


Dakine Backpack 25L - Bought for $17 two years ago. Hasn't shown its age at all.


Chicago Cubs Floral Hat - I have fro-like hair, it keeps it down.


ZtuntZ Longboard - For getting around campus.


Bluetooth Headphones - They're not very good. I used a Best Buy gift card for them, so they do the job.


Collapsable Umbrella - Lightweight and easy to fit.


Hanes Black Socks - I wear sandals most of the time, so a dry pair of socks is good to have on hand.


Mittens - My dad bought them for me last Christmas. He said a pianist's hands shouldn't be numb when he goes to practice.


Organ Shoes - These have leather soles so that they don't dirty the pedalboard at the bottom.


AmazonBasics Laptop Case - Rough, and I don't like to use it, but I dropped my laptop so I'm being more careful.


MacBook Air - Does the job well. OK battery.






Middle Left - Right:


Starbucks 16oz Travel Mug - I worked at Sbux and got this at a discount. I'm trying to be less wasteful, so instead of buying packs of waters, I just refill it at school and work.

u/HungarianHoney · 11 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I too have a phobia of the sun, not because of a legit good reason like you have, but due to the fact that I am crazy. :) I'm almost 40 and have not had a sunburn since I was in middle school... and I go to the beach almost every year. Here's what I do. (besides apply copious amounts of sunscreen every hour..)

Coolibar is a great company with all manner of sun protection items you can wear, as well as sunshades and uv umbrellas. These clothes (most of them!) are cute and offer spf 50 for the life of the item. I have this in white and wear it all the time.
I'd get a cute parasol for the actual wedding. I have several and every time I carry one I get tons of compliments. I usually order them from Amazon. this one is pretty. Search for both "parasol" as well as "uv umbrella" to get the most options.

I hope this helps you to worry less!! Do go and have fun!

u/TouchMyFacecake · 3 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Okaaay, something impressive. Wow, this is hard. How about some cool websites?

  • My favourite: Weavesilk lets you make music with shapes!

  • Kind of self explanitory: The Fucking Weather

  • Awesome stuff that you'll want to buy (most is available on Amazon): This is Why I'm Broke

  • A really cool idea for a site, you answer multiple choice questions, every right answer donates rice to people who need it! Free rice

  • Some mentally stimulating and fun stuff: Sporcle

    This is what I would like to ask for! Why would it make my day you ask?

    A) I really need a new brolly (umbrella for y'all Americans).

    B) IT'S LIKE A SWORD, HOW FREAKING COOL IS THAT? I can also use it to poke the pigeons off of my windowsill.

    Great idea for a contest!

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

SO. MANY. THINGS, haha. Half my wishlist is things for my house.

I'm just going to link a bunch of cool things real quick, just to give you an idea of whats out there and what you can get. And since you mentioned plungers...this ones first

Pirate skull plunger! It goes back and forth between being unavailable to available but it's a pretty nifty way to deck out an otherwise boring house item!

Melting Clock Is a hella sweet, very Alice in Wonderland-y!

An umbrella because everyone needs one of those, and this one just happens to have the bonus of looking like a samurai sword.

A scooby doo mystery machine salt and pepper shaker I actually own this one, it is so cool. Magnets connect the two parts together! (they actually have a bunch of different ones as well, not just scooby doo but Looney tunes, etc.)

Annnd speaking of loony tunes, they have baking pans shaped like characters that you can do all sorts of things with-bake, freeze, etc.

And as for me, the thing I'd like to stock my house with are these because who doesn't want gargoyle computer speakers? (particularly if you're like me, and are attempting to have a haunted mansion themed living room.)




u/love-from-london · 1 pointr/femalefashionadvice

This isn't directly clothing-related, but definitely invest in a good umbrella. It rains a good deal there (not really heavy rains, just a kind of steady drizzle) and it also gets windy, so it definitely will put a cheap umbrella through the wringer really quickly. Something with a vent like this will help keep it from flipping inside out, plus it folds small enough to fit in a bag relatively unobtrusively. (I actually have had this umbrella for the past couple of months and I've had good luck so far.)

u/PM_ME_YOUR_CHRISTMAS · 4 pointsr/AsianBeauty

> It's not formulated to be water resistant

Actually, it is.

I don't think a water resistant sunscreen as amazingly resistant as Biore Perfect Milk is being "rinsed off" by the toner. I think the real reason why OP's method leaves her skin looking better is simply because the product containing the drying ingredient (alcohol) is being applied before the hydrating products (instead of afterwards when it would undo some of that hydration) and well-hydrated skin looks much better than dry/dehydrated skin.

/u/stbay1217, the best answer to your question is...I don't know.

Most sources, including the Skin Cancer Foundation recommend applying sunscreen after moisturizing, but there are also professionals that believe that applying it before is better. How sure are you that this method has been providing you with adequate sun protection? Unless you have access to a UV camera to see if your method provides adequate sun protection, it's probably pretty hard, if not impossible, to tell. You'd be better off consulting a dermatologist about this if you want to continue using your method, because as helpful as the internet can be, it's not a perfect substitute for a professional giving you personalized advice. If seeing a dermatologist is not an option for you, then find a sunscreen that you feel comfortable applying after moisturizing (or at least use additional sun protection such as a parasol or a wide-brimmed hat when outdoors).

u/CyphyZ · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

The pagoda ones will work. And there are a ton of others. this is one of the ones I plan on picking up at some point. and this one comes in tons of colors. Lacey touches but still uv base. And for more functional than looks this one claims 95% uv protection in a little portable package :)

annnnnd now I am shopping parasols again. lol

edit: this is super cute! 50% protective and adorable, I wish it was in a non pastel

u/HlVNTI1JyFYsTEoirQp4 · 11 pointsr/EDC

I daily carry a GORUCK GR1. I chose this pack because of how ridiculously overbuilt it is. Prior to getting the GR1, I carried less and I generally still couldn't go more than 6 months at best without ripping or destroying my packs. I also like that it doesn't have much built in organization. I prefer to create my own organizational system rather than use the one mandated by the pack. This is the primary reason I chose this over similar high quality options such as the Tom Bihn Synapse 25.

Also, I know there is a serious lack of cool hacking tools. Unfortunately I am currently in a more defensive than offensive cybersecurity position, so I don't really carry a lot of stuff around with me like I used to when I was red team.

On the front you can see that I have a Grimloc biner in case I need to attach anything to my pack. I also have a Gonex water bottle pouch and a large water bottle. On the back of the pack I have a pouch with my EDC Zebralight on the shoulder strap for easy access while wearing the ruck.

u/Natural_Law · 2 pointsr/Ultralight

I have a Liteflex Swing, non telescoping umbrella that I really love. My wife has the telescoping model which is not as strong. It's been great in rain, snow, and marble size hail. I'd also look at Montbell umbrellas if I were buying again now.

I have the GG Vapor Trail that I bought in 2005, which was replaced by the Crown VC. I would DEFINITELY keep this pack near the top of my list if I was buying another pack. Super light and comfortable.

u/redvelvethair · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Take this as someone who's lived in Denver their whole life.

Colorado's weather is crazy! Last year we had floods up the rear! I couldn't leave the house without getting wet so I defiantly recommend a good sturdy umbrella like this one I defiantly could've used it!

Also if you're ever in Denver, I recommend visiting Voodoo Doughnuts , their doughnuts are by far the best!

Have fun in Colorado! They aren't lying when they say the air is fresher here! c:

u/CaffeinatedGuy · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

This ;)

Okay, I can't pick just one, so I present you the following. As you'll notice, all three are practical items, but that's because most people would/could use them all.

Most comfortable keyboard I've ever used.

Best remote control ever. Seriously, this thing is easy to program and can be customized any way you want. It's only limitation is the 5 device limit, but that's still enough for most (even me!). This is the model I have, but you may find another model by the same brand that better suits you.

This umbrella is not only head-turning cool, it's also really great quality that's above and beyond what you would expect from something that looks like a novelty. It's even cooler to me because I actually do Japanese swordsmenship, and the other members of our club/dojo are jealous.

u/vera214usc · 1 pointr/weddingplanning

June 18th! Woo!

  • I wrote out a detailed list of all decorations last night for my day of coordinator so she knows what goes where.

  • I just finalized my popsicle cart! I'm getting wedding cake and peach flavors to match our wedding cake!

  • Just venmoed final payment to my officiant

    My to-do list

  • Packing this week
  • Flying to Charleston on Saturday! The forecast is looking like there's a chance of rain so I bought this umbrella on Amazon

  • Once we're in town and the probate judge office opens on Monday, we'll be applying for our marriage license!

  • I have a ton of decorations to put together which I can't do until we're in South Carolina, so I'm looking forward to being Martha Stewart for a week. Chalkboard signs, centerpieces, floral wall, etcetera, etcetera.

  • Pay everyone else.

    My bridal shower is next Friday! We're getting our nails done and then having luncheon! I'm ready to do this!

u/murr0c · 1 pointr/Amsterdam

After losing my umbrella to a wind gust I just Googled "strongest umbrellas" and got one off Amazon for $20. There were some more expensive ones, but this had stellar reviews and has held up very well through some strong wind. Just be aware there are different diameters, so make sure you don't get a tiny one (unless that's what you're going for) :)

u/bstock · 3 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I don't live in a big city with lots of wind or anything, but I bought a few of these in 2015 and have been pretty happy with them. They're cheap enough to where even if they did break at this point I'd feel I got my money worth.

https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00P9ZFUR4/

u/redct · 1 pointr/travel

I've been pretty happy with the Lifetek travel umbrella. Easily fits into bags as I usually keep mine in the water bottle pocket of a backpack. It's also stood up to some pretty crazy winds. They also have a 2 year warranty which they are good about honoring - I accidentally dropped the umbrella out of a third story window which cracked the handle (long story) and they replaced it, no questions asked.

u/-filly- · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

fear cuts deeper than words

Edit #1 - Replaced #1 #2, #9, #13, #15, edited some text, added bonuses

Okay, so a lot of my items are similar, or are kind of "flexing" the rules, but I will leave official rulings up to you. Here goes!

  1. Something Grey - Strip of magnesium - This actually just got gifted to me. This coal trash can is silver, which is basically grey :D

    2)Something reminiscent of rain - Zen Garden - Flexing the rules. It's only related because it's a garden. An umbrella!! I don't have one of these, and I have no idea why.

  2. Food related - Pineapple corer/slicer

  3. On wishlist not for me (this is for my fiancee) - Apple Cider k-cups

  4. A book you should read - Everyone should have the Joy of Cooking

    6)Item less than a dollar - MP3

  5. Something related to cats - This is related because of that scene in "Christmas Vacation" where the cat gets electrocuted

  6. [Beautiful but not useful - Lego adoption of Brandenburg Gate](
    http://www.amazon.com/LEGO%C2%AE-Architecture-Brandenburg-Gate-21011/dp/B0050R0V3O/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=E9RD1GO4V1KF&coliid=I22USNN7FC4LVL)

  7. Movie everyone should see once - Not on wishlist - Harlan County, USA. This documentary is nearly perfect in every sense of the word. This movie is so powerful, and so real, it's just unbelievable. One of my favorites. I always suggest it when someone asks "what documentary should I see?"

  8. Something useful when Zombies attack - Kinect Your Shape Fitness Evolved - You need to be able to Outwit, Outrun, and Outlast.

  9. Profound impact on life - Guitar. I really want to learn how to play, and my dad was going to teach me, but he passed before he was able to. It would mean a lot to share that passion with him even though he's already moved on

  10. Add-On Item - Cat6 cable!!!

  11. Most expensive item -It's actually the guitar, so I went with the 2nd most expensive which is a Logitech G19 keyboard Nope. It's actually this amp.

  12. Bigger than a bread box - Mizuno backpack

  13. Smaller than a golf ball - Not sure if a k-cup would count, but I threw it in there. If it doesn't count, I will find something else It doesn't. Here's some ship and anchor cufflinks I really want for my wedding :)

  14. Something that smells wonderful - Kind of cheating, but a different k-cup. Donut shop coffee is the BEST. Changed to a different beverage. I have a horrible addiction to this stuff, and it smells wonderful (to me)

  15. SFW Toy - Legos are a toy!! :D

  16. Helpful going back to school - I listed the Zen Garden again because it's helpful to have something peaceful when going back to school

  17. Something related to your current obsession - I am OBSESSED with Lorde. I have stated this many times over the last week.

  18. Something amazing/awe inspiring - SERIOUSLY. LOOK AT THIS FUCKING CHAIR. THIS MOTHERFUCKER RIGHT HERE? THIS SHIT FOLDS UP SO YOU CAN CARRY IT. NOT GOOD ENOUGH? SHIT, SON. THIS BITCH HAS TWO ARMRESTS FOR YOUR LAZY ASS. STILL BITCHING? GUESS WHAT DICKLIPS, THIS BITCH HAS TWO CAN HOLDERS AND A FUCKING COOLER. YOU DON'T EVEN NEED TO GET YOUR BITCH ASS UP TO GET A DRINK, BAM, YOU ALREADY GOT ONE. IT EVEN HAS A POUCH TO HOLD YOUR OTHER SHIT, IF ALL OF THIS ISN'T GOOD ENOUGH. YOU NEED TO HAVE THIS CHAIR.


    BONUS #1 - I looked through your reddit history (not very hard, but I did look), and came up empty, so I'll just post something later that might fit.

    BONUS #2 - These blankets are made in Oregon, and look SUPER cool. Not on my WL (I have more than enough blankets), but I really like them.


    I may attempt the bonuses tomorrow, we will see. This is definitely a placeholder until rulings on some items are made. Fix'd :D

I'm currently in the process of buying some UPF 50 hats from the Coolibar website! And have hassled my sister for days to pick a damn hat so I can buy her some hats to help protect her skin too LOL. (Meanwhile my other sister regularly uses tanning beds can you believe this?!)

I'm getting my hats from here 😃 also going to get some gloves and a sun shawl wrap

Swing Trek Umbrellas Liteflex Trek Umbrella Black W2L69027-BLACK https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001OPHI6Y/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_2D2HDbDCTD9TH

Regardless, can vouch for how awesome it is. Very light.

totes Clear Bubble Umbrella https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01L9DKZ1A/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_qMJ-AbVZ3R69B

This one looks like it might be big enough!!

Some other suggestions would be to look for a public park or something similar with gazebos or other buildings you could utilize.
Does the couple have a favorite restaurant or museum, brewery etc? If they do, contact the space and see if they would allow you to photograph there, maybe in exchange you could give the location some final edits to use promotionally?

u/teddiursaw · 5 pointsr/AsianBeauty

I'm seeking sun umbrella recommendations. I had one on eBay I had been eyeing, but someone else pointed me towards this Van Gogh one with the reflective insides. The reviews don't have me convinced that I'll love it^plus ^I ^^think ^^it's ^^^ugly.

Does anyone else have any sun umbrella recommendations? I do have a bit of preference for eBay since it lets me use PayPal Credit.

u/The_Stargazer · 13 pointsr/PacificCrestTrail

Chiming in as a Desert Search And Rescue volunteer, I find these umbrellas EXTREMELY useful. I started carrying a umbrella as part of my search and rescue pack earlier this year, responding to calls in temps of 100 - 110 F, and I'm using it ALL of the time. I use them both for my patients, and as well for other rescuers or bystanders who are well enough to keep hiking but need to keep out of the sun for a while.

After carrying several throughout the last year, I've finally settled on the following one:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003H1HXN6/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It's compact, it allows air to flow through it so a sudden gust won't destroy it, and it's relatively durable.

u/qqpugla · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I received this red panda umbrella from a previous contest for my daughter. So, it is smaller and kid-sized but possibly one of the cutest things ever :-)

u/ilikepai · 3 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

My mother in law bought me a Windpro umbrella before I went to study abroad in England, and it held up pretty well to the English rain and wind! I think mine is this one. The vent thing sounds like a gimmick, but I guess it worked! I've also seen a lot of nicer umbrellas at Nordstrom Rack so you could check there for a discounted one

u/Saigyouji · 1 pointr/UofT

Well I'm no expert on umbrellas, but I use a slightly newer (and greener) model of this:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Fulton-G-813-Huntsman-Umbrella/dp/B002PHM74S

Cost me $40 from Raindrops (within walking distance of UofT). Had it for about a year now, seems utterly immune to the wind (never inverted or come close). It's non-folding though (so you can't stow it away into a bag), and the handle gets chipped freakishly easily if you don't leave the plastic casing on it.

From what I gathered, a steel or fiberglass frame (not aluminum) and as few folds as you can tolerate (more folds means more compact, but also more points of possible failure) generally make for better umbrellas.

u/SnappyCrunch · 3 pointsr/mallninjashit

What brand was it? I have the larger Kikkerland samurai umbrella, and it's one of the best umbrellas I've ever owned. Solid construction and makes a satisfying "thunk" sound when it opens.

u/bloodguard · 1 pointr/volt

I have a LifeTek Automatic (Wind Resistant Frame). I fits in the door holder easily but honestly I usually just toss it onto the passenger side floor during the rainy season.

Very sturdy. Auto open and, more importantly, auto close.

u/upflupchuckfck · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I'm sure that one is fine but I feel like it's going to be marked up due to the brand/design. I bought this one last year and it's been holding up really well.

u/kerrcobra · 1 pointr/EDC

It doesn't rain all that much in Georgia, but when I'm anticipating it I carry an umbrella on me. Usually I just leave it in my car though. My brother gave me one of these for my birthday years ago and that's typically what I use. I don't care for umbrellas enough to spend money on a different one, and I kind of like this anyway - it's large enough to cover myself and my bag, pretty sturdy, and neat looking.

u/uptightandpersonal · 4 pointsr/trees

This Totes umbrella is the best I've come across. I don't care for "golf" umbrellas and those mini umbrellas don't strike me as particularly useful or appealing.

u/alittlekink · 2 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I love my bubble umbrella!


No matter what direction the rain is coming down, I can protect myself without impacting visibility. It's been a life saver at times when, with a solid umbrella and sideways rain, I wouldn't have been able to see in front of me as I walk.


Only complaint is that it creates a mini updraft inside the umbrella that blows my hair around if it's not pulled back.

u/dzernumbrd · 5 pointsr/perth

Blunt Umbrellas are the $$$$$ option. I think I've seen them at The Good Store in East Vic Park.

https://www.thegoodstore.com.au/search-results.asp?sKeywords=umbrella&price=&Submit=Submit

$100 to $160 range from that shop.

I did a "bit" (a lot) of research and eventually went the $$ option and got this on Amazon instead -> https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0160HYB8S/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It's pretty durable so far.

u/Jedibrad · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

This is the one I have. It's pretty decent; it's pretty lightweight, but it doesn't feel too flimsy. It seems like it'll last a reasonably long time, especially for $20.

I bought one for a friend as a gift a few years back. You can still find them on Amazon.

I wouldn't worry about it too much unless you plan on going mid-summer or something, and/or your car is really unreliable. I'd be most concerned with having shade if I had to wait out near the road for a hitch or something. I like having a sun umbrella

I have seen rangers driving around, even on the minor roads, but doubt there are very regular patrols everywhere. The spots you mentioned are popular enough that you'll see people and shouldn't have to wait too long for help. It could take a while to get a tow truck out there though..

If size and collapsibility (I know that isn't a real word!) are important factors for you, this one is amazing:

https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B000F1RGBU/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I previously had a Fulton collapsible that lasted quite a few years, but when it finally broke, I did some online research and the above model got rave reviews everywhere (in camping magazines, umbrella tests, Amazon reviews, etc.). For the size and price, it is very well-made and it has never given me trouble during heavy rain and wind. I carry it around in my bag every day in case of unexpected rain, and it would even fit in a purse.

u/JoyfulStingray · 21 pointsr/AskWomen

I live in a swamp city, DC. Very muggy and warm during the summer.

Most women here either carry their work shoes in their bag or leave them under their desk at work (that is what I do) and wear light walking shoes that are very breathable.

Put on deodorant before going to venture to my public trans stop.

I also am one of those weirdos that have a sun umbrella for the summer. There are ones on ebay from japan that are super cute. There is nothing worse than being in work clothes and the sun beating down on you. This keeps me less sweaty and slightly cooler.

I also keep a cute folding fan in my bag for summer because I have waited at metro stations when the AC is busted. It is awful.

I have this UV umbrella -- it's (somewhat) compact and works really well but honestly I find it a pain to not have both hands free. If I'm going to be out all day, I usually wear this hat (although I cut off the bow because I thought it was dumb) and/or UV cut clothes from uniqlo.

Obviously your phone has better vision than your eyes. Might I suggest you see an optometrist as everyone bar you has picked this out as an umbrella.

u/kittydorkdork · 1 pointr/fringefashion

One of the best things I ever bought! The important part is the UV. I don't know how that works or if it's even legit but I don't get sunburned so it must work!

I bought mine in a store but it's like this one
(edit) and here's another one from Australian company Solbari

Have you thought of just using strong umbrellas? They make specific umbrellas suitable for light combat in a pinch or heavy winds (you can actually stand on them without breaking), but they are like $100. https://www.amazon.com/Standard-Unbreakable-Walking-Stick-Umbrella-handle/dp/B00HZYTMTY/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1492377773&sr=8-5&keywords=unbreakable%2Bumbrella&th=1&psc=1

However, as long as you accept that a cheaper umbrella is only good for one good go in an emergency, any overbuilt full size one for $20 or less (thicker metal stick part or heavy wood), preferably with a carrying sheath is a defensive weapon in a pinch.

Or better still yet one of the overbuilt collapsible golf type 56" or 58" vented canopy umbrellas that can pop out the overbuilt handle (wood or heavy duty hard plastic) without a need to pop open the canopy (not all can do this and most are NOT overbuilt). Some overbuilt ones almost equal a weak ass collapsible baton.

On the East Coast, there is a CHANCE of rain several days a week. So practical. And stuck in a handbag - no special attention. Plus little chance of serious damage being caused. And would be hard for the media to say cr-p about same.

Is there such a thing as a tactical umbrella? I'd probably buy it

u/Zeekawla99ii · 8 pointsr/AskNYC

The conventional wisdom in NYC is that you buy cheap umbrellas at kiosks (the little black ones), because you'll throw it away anyways.

I strongly disagree with this. The main reason (besides forgetting them somewhere) that people throw away umbrellas in NYC is that they are destroyed by strong NYC winds.

Just invest $10 more in a windproof umbrella: https://www.amazon.com/EEZ-Y-Windproof-Construction-Compact-Umbrella/dp/B01AU292NS/

I've had one that has lasted 10 years.

Honestly, it's under $20, so it's not a travesty if you forget it on the train, and it looks plenty stylish with a suit. Also, wind resistant and will keep you dry.

u/nialtheho · 1 pointr/volt

I bought this cheap umbrella on Amazon (link) and it's worked out fine for the few times we've needed it. It can occasionally slide forward into the door pocket but for the most part it's just fine.

u/xxSadie · 2 pointsr/weddingplanning

Here you go! Be sure to check the customer reviews for photos from other weddings.

u/HugoChavezRamboIII · 0 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I swear I'm not being facetious, but this one is pretty awesome.


Now, I know you're thinking 'that'll look stupid' -- but that's because you're thinking with your critical hat on. I bought one of these this time last year (was sick of crappy collapsible umbrellas always breaking), and have received countless compliments. The fact that it has a samurai handle isn't immediately obvious, and the people that do notice think 'heh, that's pretty cool.'


I know this is MFA, but consider this; have you ever seen an unfashionable samurai?

u/referenceattack · 1 pointr/AskNYC

I have this one. It's compact and holds up well in wind.

It's considerably more expensive than it was when I bought it (and it was overpriced then). Other than that, it doesn't disappoint, FWIW.

u/rivazza0914 · 5 pointsr/anime

This umbrella is also sold in the real world. (Amazon.com)

I think I need to find some kind of malleable material and roll it into a tube or a cone shape if the pre made tubes can't fit.

u/WhatDidIDoNow · 1 pointr/pics

If anyone is interested in knowing what kind of umbrella it is check out this link. I couldn't help but notice "Holy crap, I have that same umbrella!" Kind of a waste of a good umbrella if you ask me though... http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001W9QUIE/ref=oh_details_o06_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

In Mexico City you can...but coming from northern Mexico, it just felt weird having an umbrella, so I bought this http://www.amazon.com/Kikkerland-UM08M-PARENT-Samurai-Umbrella/dp/B001W9QUIE/

Last week a bus driver alerted the police that a student had a rifle in a duffel bag, causing a complete 14,000+ student campus lock down and police to swarm the campus with automatic weaponry and shotguns.

Turns out it was a samurai sword handled umbrella similar to this

http://www.amazon.com/add-UM08-Samurai-Sword-Umbrella/dp/B001W9QUIE

it was neato.

u/oneduce · 1 pointr/pics

when no one else is watching this is a sword

u/Neverdied · 1 pointr/atheism

And this is why I always walk in London with my samurai sword on my back...those Walking Dead episodes taught me a lot. You must always be ready to defend yourself.

u/MIDItheKID · 1 pointr/AskReddit

Was the blade exposed?

Did they go into the car and take the sword?

If neither of these things happen, quickly, go out and buy one of these. Then show it to them and say "you must have mistaken my novelty umbrella for a sword"

u/TommiHPunkt · 4 pointsr/de

Von einem Amoklauf zu sprechen, ist da extrem übertrieben, wir wissen ja nicht mal, ob der wirklich bewaffnet war, schließlich gibt es nur Augenzeugenberichte. Könnte auch ein Regenschirm gewesen sein, wäre nicht das erste Mal

Dieser Fall ist für mich klar unter Regel 2.4 zu löschen.
