Happy birthday BE! (You're a youngster)

Here in the states the "stone" you need for your lighter is called a flint.

Got some pretty sweet gifts too.

Already spend 20 of them buying my cousin nicotine gum. We just learned that he had taken up smoking about half a year ago.
So my sister and I made him throw away his last pack and I bought him some gum instead.
We did manage to talk some sense into him. So i think he will stop.... i hope.

-I got a Zwilling (Good German brand) kitchen knife.
(Instead of heat treated it has been frozen down to negative 185c to make it harder. But i thought that's what you do with a heat treatment. If one of you know what's up with that, please tell me)

-Also got a Japanese fluid lighter from my grandfather.
He bought it in Japan 50-60 years ago. It has a small amount of gold inlay. I like it a lot.
Doesn't work yet. I need to change it's "stone" (i think it's called)



-At last i got a steam mop, a T-shirt, a deodorant and a toiletry bag.
Grats on another solar revolution, and the thing you need is a flint, Ronson makes great quality ones. Zippo makes standard ones.

Thanks.
It seems Ronson flints are not that common in Denmark.
Found it in only 2 shops online, and they where not in stuck.
So i ordered some Zippo flints.

Great, and once you get it refurbished, never use it! Smoking kills (as you know) and carrying that in a pocket will wear it down.

They started the foundation where I live about a month ago. Should not take too much longer to finish. I need higher upload speeds. My current connection; VDSL2 on ADSL2+ plans, has 1MB upstream only. Low for a 20MB downstream connection.

Happy birthday. I just turned 25 as well. I'm starting to feel... not as young anymore.
