Erik: an Imagine Dragons T-Shirt and a copy of Edward R Murrow's "This I Believe" along with a soft sleeping mask and a bottle of melatonin for when he's traveling overseas so he can get proper rest.  Of course the Volvo themed object would be a set of custom center caps for his new wheels.

Murrow and I went to the same University ;), got the mask, melatonin, and center caps.

PatA unisex bathroom sign he can take with him and put up at any restaurant restroom when he goes out to eat?

Nice choice.  It probably won't surprise you that I actually own that book.  I would have expected something from Sam Harris' library like The Moral Landscape  or one of Dawkins' more popular works.  My other suggestion would be a bottle of Zinc to keep you healthy amid the nasty germs of air travel.  That or payment for Global Entry but I have to imagine you already have that also.

Zinc is bullshit, Vodka and tonic.  Never been sick abroad.

All I can say is I don't drink so zinc is my alternative and my experience mirrors what the studies say.  Vitamin C is bullshit however.

That zinc does or does not work? I have read both...

 

Hopefully my SS gift comes soon so I can decide if I want to keep it or send it to my SS.

That it works.  It definitely decreases the length and severity of any colds I do catch - just wait Erik, while travel may not kill you little kids are the worst vector possible when they start attending school.

And SS regifting is HILARIOUS :laugh:

I don't even have kids and anytime I'm at an appointment and there are kids around I wash and sanitize my hands so much I bet people think I'm a germaphobe and that I would be better off living in a bubble. Kids are germ factories and they spread that stuff on everything they touch.

Received! Thanks Michael! I don't really read The Oatmeal, but this stuff is great! I'm really stoked about the socks!
Edit: Oh shit! I started reading about "The Blerch." Fucking amazing. What a bad ass, on point gift.

Note: the sunglasses aren't mine, but they were too snazzy not to include in the picture!

Now take note motherfuckers, that's how you do a received gift post. If you feel like you need to say something negative, we already have threads for bitching about stuff. If you get in this thread and start bitching about your present, everyone in this thread is encouraged to make fun of you.
