Na I have a lot of outdoor gear. Pretty much everything you could need to survive in the wild (along with the training thanks to uncle sam's gun club). I just didn't have a proper knife, which is an absolute necessity, and really the only requirement for prolonged survival in the wild. It'll most likely collect dust 360 days a year, being used for the annual camping trip, and if I ever go hunting. Don't really have a way to store the meat at the moment, and I'm not going to kill an animal just for sport.

Someday, I want to kill a bear with that knife. That's a true hunt. I'll probably get obliterated though. If you guys ever see me post something to the effect of "Going to get that bear" and I never log in again, you'll know why... the bear won.

Sweet! I'm not the only crazy USB thumb drive collector guy

I have a drawer full of them, two on my keyring, three (actually containing stuff I use) in my nerd backpack toolkit, and any number the kids have lost in toy chest blackhole.

My favorite, although I've never used it, is this one. I have a portable BackTrack install on it that appears to look just like Windows XP.

I suppose that the two favourite gifts that I got is the tablet that I'm posting from now (from my girlfriend) and a harmonica that my daughter have me!

sort of polar opposite of expenditure, but both rather cool
.

other than that
I got some clothes, (socks, pants, a tee shirt and some cufflinks)
chocolate, my sister made me some cookies, and I got some bottles of ale that I quite like as well.

Liquid cooling in a slimline might be a pain. My main rig is liquid cooled.

I got some really nice things. I have some great friends and family

Got an android powered bluetooth helicopter, a tetris bop it. So addictive.
Also got Rayman Legends, some DVD's, money that paid for some of the dehumidifier running in my games room, and some drink and sweets
Was well happy.

I really do shell out at Christmas for other people. I love seeing reactions on peoples faces, but at the same time, I'm not really a fan of watching people watching me open gifts (I'm weird).

Last gift I had was a watch from my father like a year ago.

I'll photo shoot it and post it later.


Edit:

Hold on, I just found out from Life it is about Xmas gifts. I don't see any thing saying that. Hmmm...

We don't celebrate Christmas here so I got nothing
