[Opinion] What the f---- is up with Grand Theft Auto V?There's no way someone drops that many f-bombs by accident...
One of the best gifts I ever got as a kid was a Swiss army knife from my grandmother. Look out, MacGyver!
Here, with no real rhyme or reason, is a picture of the Swiss army knife that I have had since I was a kid.
I suppose that technically there is a reason, even though I'm depriving you of your well-deserved iambic pantameter. Just now, I was preparing myself some coffee and I was out of creamer, so I added milk and decided to sweeten it up with some vanilla bean-flavored syrup from Torani, only the lid was fastened securely by dried sweetness and I had to cut the excess away with my pocket knife before I could loosen the cap.

None of those shops are in the same location today, or even in business.
