I have no contact with anyone from high school. I did look up a few people on Facebook but decided not to make contact. As for university, I do keep in contact with a few people, even ran into one at a show some years ago.
Did you know you can get stacked lunch boxes that slide into a insulated container? For example, here's a Zojirushi model - I have something similar I bought many years ago at the Vietnamese home goods store near 99 Ranch in Milpitas. Zo has a variety of models, other such as Tiger probably do too.
I haven't touched one of those Tiffen boxes in 44 years. When I was still a young child, my mom had one of those stacking round container things. It looked pretty much exactly like the one on the Lee Valley page you linked to, except my mom's was 10 or 12 inches in diameter.
Almost 44 years, to the day, ago, I was carrying it to school, full of frosted chocolate cupcakes to give to my classmates, on the occasion of my birthday. I don't know if the unit shown operates the same way, but the handle on my mom's fastened to a set of pins in the bottom tray, allowing it (the handle) to pivot out of the way for easy access to the trays and their delicious contents.
A few blocks from school, I somehow allowed the whole thing to pivot, spilling the nicely frosted cupcakes onto the gravel.
Being the type to not suffer defeat easily, I picked them all up and did my best to pluck the rocks off the frosting. That turned out to not be such a good idea, as the smaller rocks easily hid themselves.
Fortunately, no one actually broke a tooth or got sick, but suffice to say that the response from my classmates was intense enough that I will likely never forget that birthday.
That finger wrench is an amazing tool. I hope that fat that theyie website gives a 404 does not mean they've gone out of business - surely not with such a good product? apart from anything else, that menas Max won't be able to get them as giveaways for EELive 2015 :-(
We have an amazing toolshop in Bathurst where I live called Tool King - same sort of thing as Lee Valley. A very dangerous place to enter - you don't usually get out for an hour or so.....
