Today at IKEA I bought: like 8 LED lightbulbs to make our living room brighter, more black storage boxes (we now have 30 or so), a replacement mug for one of ours that got chipped a while ago, a super cheap egg slicer (been wanting one for a while but thought all the options from Amazon were way too expensive), a relatively cheap but very nice compact mandoline (another thing I've been wanting but which cost way too much on Amazon; all the options also seemed super bulky), a 1 L glass carafe with silicone lid to match one I already had (so now I can make 2 L of my “Scottish cream” liqueur at a time), some pretty metal drinking straws (complete impulse purchase), a mesh colander that expands to actually rest on the edges of our massive kitchen sink (so René doesn't have to come and hold one when I'm, e.g., draining pasta), suction-cup hooks for the bathroom, beautiful silvery-grey table runner and placemats for our new dining table, a really nice grey knit throw blanket (already had one but love it so much I needed another), a fitted mattress protector (our old mattress protector keeps shifting around too much), and — the major splurge of the day — a new high-quality king-size duvet and luxurious satiny duvet cover, sheet, and pillow cases! (No more stealing the duvet from each other at night!)

^^lol.

I bought a hammer the other day. It's insane how a hammer becomes your own. Even if i pick up the same brand hammer i immediately know it isnt mine. Idk if its weight or what but i can tell you my hammer just from the feel of holding it.

Actually that helmet has a couple extra safety features such as:
    Progressive layering – three-layer impact liner designed to manage energy from three potential impact scenarios: low, mid and high-speed.
    Rotational energy management – A "slip zone" within the impact liner allows for subtle movement between the inner layers and works to reduce rotational energy transfer from angular impacts.
    Exclusive Magnefusion™ Emergency Removal System (MERS) cheekpads.

It's always a good thing to be wearing proper protection for any sport you participate in including bedroom sports.

Whilst you’re in a spendy mood, perhaps you’d care to back my new start-up venture? You strike me as the sort of man that would enjoy the all-new Marmaduke Industries Anal Obliterator Performance Turbo XL?

As an early backer, you would qualify for the exclusive Founders Edition, which comes in a special metallic fuchsia paint finish and includes Bluetooth telephony for hands-free convenience during longer periods of operation.

First I'm in a spendy mood because well when they announced that life expectancy has gone down in the US that just meant I need to spend my retirement a little bit faster. My goal is to exit the world with what I came into it with or as close as I can get. Net zero.

Being as my retirement is baked but also that I wont be in a position to takes such a big gamble to be an investment backer to your business venture, you'll need to look elsewhere for an investor.

You're also mistaken on your other assumption. Since I get enough of the real thing, I have zero need for such a device.

That's not how it works. Average life expectancy, used without a qualifier, generally refers to life expectancy at birth, i.e. for a baby born in a certain year. If you're not a newborn baby, it has no bearing on you. There are different statistics for people who are a certain age today, and the recent reporting did not concern those.

A report by the CDC specifically highlighted three factors contributing to the decline in US life expectancy at birth: rises in drug overdoses, liver disease and suicide. Are any of those likely to affect you?

Also relevant and perhaps ironic is this article from yesterday's Guardian:
Being wealthy adds nine years to life expectancy, says study

...which, incidentally, is quite a bit more than that drop in life expectancy reported for US babies born from 2016 to 2017, which measured at just about a month.

Hopefully yours won't burn down your bedroom like mine did mine. :P
Is it temperature-controlled so it can't overheat?

Somehow when I share a bed with a BF, no heater blanket is needed. Is that not one of the benefits of having a sleep-over...
