A catalogue of possibilities. Guaranteed you will want 4,000 things from this huge catalogue. The web site is kk.org/cooltools; the book harkens back to The Whole Earth Catalog: everything under the sun. Just as big and heavy. They don’t sell anything---but they do tell you where to get it or how to make it. 3D printing, raising goats and how to recognize a good scrotum, trees, tarantulas, knives, airlines, pens, mice, scanners, urban exploration, urban camouflage. You will find 100 things you want to look into. Any number of things you want to get into. Knots. Luggage. GPS. LED. Long distance bike trails. The good old P-38 can opener. How to find lost objects. Gonzo gizmos. Headblade (the perfect scalp razor). The Halifax library has a copy.
