Pablo Escobar’s impoverished hometown today. Man living on the street in a makeshift hut, really just a roofless box. Notice his wedding picture, probably his only validation that he was once linked to a better world than the one he now finds himself in.
WHAT TO BRING TO A GUNFIGHT!

This weapon can kill in 100 ways. It weighs 9 pounds. ”It’s hard to tell by photos alone, but this multi-tool is much larger than your typical Swiss Army knife. Its handle is about 10 inches long, 6 inches wide and 4 inches deep, which makes a lot of sense when you realize how many different types of blades have to fit into it. To start, there’s two dagger blades, a serrated bread knife, a few pairs of shears, a couple of saw blades, a corkscrew, a lancet (for boils?), button hooks, a cigar cutter (hey, why not!), mechanical pens and pencils, and even a piano tuning fork (whew). Really, the only thing the knife is missing is a bottle opener, since the bottle cap we know today wasn’t invented until 1892.”
