Keys(+keychains)
Cell phone
2 types of pocketknives
Calculator
DS Lite
Phillips Mp3 player (sometimes the headphones are stashed in the pockets too)
4 pens, 3 pencils, and a click eraser
Wallet

The camera that this picture was taken from also lives in one of my pockets.

The calculator (TI-84 silver) actually fits in one of my side pockets. My usual attire consists of shorts with >6 pockets (<3 cargo shorts), and a jacket that adds four to six more, depending on which one I'm wearing.

On finals day last quarter, I also had a water bottle and several granola bars in various pockets all over.

I'm typically burdened down with a whole bunch of /junk/, in addition to the following:

Wallet.
Keys.
Birth Control Pills.
Advil.
Tiger Balm.
Chap stick.
Cell phone.
Change.
At least one novel.

And then there's the added fact that i usually have my car with me, which contains no less than fifteen novels, three to five changes of clothes, two or three pairs of shoes, and assorted other crap. I think there's a space heater, Clue, and four or five extra purses/bags in there right now...

I LIKE STUFFZ.

I support the transport of clean changes of clothes in your car. It's very useful. But why books? Is traffic really bad where you're at, such that you have time to actually read a book (and I don't mean just skimming the pages)?

I have a sizable first aid kit, jumper cables, wrecking bar (giant-size crowbar, basically; about four feet long compared to a normal crowbar's two), five-quart container of motor oil, five-quart container of pre-mixed antifreeze-coolant, spare wiper blades, two rolls of duct tape, and several flares in my car. I'd probably carry my shotgun in the car with me, as well, but I don't think that's legal here in Arkansas; I guess I'll find out when I start working towards my CCW in earnest later on.

Damn, I like your car without ever having seen it. I had a friend once describe mine as a roving landfill. Yours sounds like it'd put mine to shame, though.

What's with the knives? Self-defense?

mine has no trash, gets cleaned quite frequently, and generally the junk is organised, a lot is in the trunk.
as for the knives, the double blade is self defence/tag*, the big one is for work type uses, and the throwing ones are for fun.
*it is a game that imerged between us, that we actually play, and in no way is meant to advertise myself/friends as cool/wild/crazy/stupid/violent/scary/etc. cause that's actually a type of pet peeve of mine.

Knives are a mixed bag for self-defense, though... they lack the intimidation value and stopping power of a gun or taser, and they're easily turned on you if you're inexperienced in using them for that purpose. Then again, they're a lot easier to get, and a lot easier to conceal.

Also, what's skullcandy? One of those candy necklaces with the candies in the shape of skulls?

Nah, it's the other stuff that's attached to the knife (screwdriver, can opener, saw, file, needlenose pliers, and small flashlight among others) that make it useful to carry around. My pocketknife is hardly useful in a fight anyway, it's mainly used for woodwork and cutting paper when I don't have a scissors.

The Little one is for general stuff, whittling and the like, The bigger one is for when i'm working with ropes or foam, or traveling in my mates landrover, as we have to padlock the door on to stop it flying off... easy emergency exit with the windowbreaker.

I wouldn't want to stab someone in self defense; I'd rather take a bit of a kicking than risk killing someone.

Varies, varies, varies:

If I'm just going out on a Summer evening, I need my Holy Trinity. Wallet, Keys, Phone. And just before I go anywhere, I do the triple pat check, patting each pocket where I keep the thing once. It's why I call it the Holy Trinity, because I look like an angry, self-flagellating priest when I do it.

Whereas if I'm off to College for the day, I take in my coat and jeans my phone, keys, wallet, one black biro pen that was a 21st Birthday Present, 4 coloured pens (blue, black, red, green - blue for law, black for facts, red for case names, green for statutes - yes, I'm an anally retentive lawyer), my iPod, a bottle of water, and my shopping list, which I always have with me - I eat the same thing every week.

No, but most have redeeming features, like intelligence or determination.

My redeeming features are arrogance and having a very loud voice.

EDIT: Ack, my terrible apologies for allowing myself to swerve off-topic. To keep it vaguely in the right area, on my (very few) days in court, I take a bag, all the necessary files, the nicest pen I can find (impresses Tribunal chairs) , enough writing paper to regrow the Amazon from, a SWITCHED OFF Oh me yarm phone, my wallet. Unfortunately, I don't get a wig and gown yet :sadface:

I'm at school, so I can't carry my knife, but here's the rest.
Pockets:
Phone
Money Clip/Wallet hybrid
Keys (car, home, work)

Backpack:
Sony E-Reader w/ books>1500
8GB Flash Drive
1 Mechanical Pencil
1 standard pencil split down the middle so that I can take the stick of lead out.
1 Black Pen
Ti-89 Titanium
Water Bottle
Duct Tape
Notecards
School books and papers.

That's really all. I don't carry around any computer hardware besides flash drive, because I use the Live Mesh and can get to my computer from pretty much anywhere.

Also if I find a reason to carry a purse, it usually just replaces my pockets and includes makeup and whatever else I really need.

I'll add my back pack (though that term really doesn't do its epic size justice)

Things that I never ever remove:
Compass.
Ordinance Survey OL17 Explorer Map, Snowdonia, Laminated.
Pack of space blankets.
Immersion resistant liner.
Survival bag.
Bivi bag.
Sleeping bag.
Tarp.
Collapsed trekking poles.
2Kg of kendal mint Cake.
Tiny Gas stove.
Folding Pans.
Waterproof trousers (actually useful)

Stuff I then fit on top of that for lectures:
Atkins Physical Chemistry 8th edition.
Organic Chemistry, Clayden et al.
Python in a nutshell, O'Riley.
2* notepad

More occasionally:
Boxfile for notes
Bag with calculator, pencils, sharperner, rubber, drywipe marker, permenet marker, and either one or both laptops & chargers.
Camera Bag with D200, 50mm, 75-300mm and 18-70mm lenses + random togging gumph
Tripod Strapped to one side.

On wednesdays only:
Climbing harness,
2* Screwgate Karabiner
Belay Device
Rappelling Device

I really should either get another bag, or at least find a proper place to store all the stuff that lives in the bottom of that rucksack when it isn't needed, the only +ves are it bulks the bag out to size, and it means I don't think twice about the weight of my bag for real.

Excluding my backpack (which I pretty much only use for school) I just got a Ultimate Hoodie for Christmas, which just about doubled my inventory limit. That link says that it includes a pen/pencil pocket which, if true, is well hidden.

On a school day I carry somewhere around:
My house key
a Mirado Black Warrior (the best pencils)
a Bic "round stic Grip fine" (the ones you buy in packs of 10. I actually really like them, they write smooth, fit well in my hand, and are cheap)
a Pentel Hi-Polymer eraser
my phone
my wallet
my school ID
a small flashlight, which I think I've lost on my desk somewhere...
a small, lined Moleskine notebook, for notes and writing
a small screwdriver set
change and small things I pick up off of the ground

I try to have the following objects within reasonable range, or know where I can easily get them:
Duct tape
Packing tape
a box of Bandages
Neosporin
Extra pens/pencils (up to a dozen of each)
a TI-89
a full-sized spiral
1-2 pads of graph paper
a pad of drawing paper
a full set of dice
a Hi-liter
Whatever book I happen to be reading.

When I'm not going to school, I typically have a pocket knife of sorts in my pocket, but mine is currently broken.

If I'm bringing my laptop with me, I can easily carry all of the above, and more, in my laptop bag.

Some Asshole wrote:Knives are a mixed bag for self-defense, though... they lack the intimidation value and stopping power of a gun or taser, and they're easily turned on you if you're inexperienced in using them for that purpose. Then again, they're a lot easier to get, and a lot easier to conceal.

my first one i bought for work, but when walking late at night it made me feel alot better, i then used how to use them for fighting, though i'm pretty ok without it.

also in my car(i checked):
stuffed penguin
big (like 24X30-something big) sketch pad
aloe verra
marshmallow gun

Mmm, aloe vera's some good stuff. Nothing makes burns feel better.

And a marshmallow gun? Really?

Is it the light, or does everything you carry really have a green-bronze sheen?

Wow, I can hardly believe all the stuff you guys carry. I generally have a wallet in my back pocket, a phone in my left, and my keys in my right...that's it. Everything else is stashed in the car or at home to be picked up on a need to use basis.

Seriously, how do you guys walk/run without clanking? :D
