This appears to be a 1940 120 Eight 2 door Coupé. I’m not entirely sure this is strictly kosher. The bonnet vents aren’t correct and the grille guard was only fitted to the 160 and larger models. The vents appear to be from the 110 Six model. Still it’s a nice looking car, whatever.
Land Rover Defender 90 SVX 60 Anniversary Special Edition, 2008 (and the Land Rover transporter, 1950s). Land Rover did not start using the “Defender” name until 1989, until then they had only produced two model lines, the Range Rover and the Land Rover. However with the arrival of the Land Rover Discovery it was decided that Land Rover’s 90 and 110 models (the numbers related to their approximate wheelbases) also needed a model name, hence the use of the Defender brand
The Leatherman, phone, 701, Field Notes, and Buck are always on me. I don’t think I’ve left the house without my Buck knife in the last seven years. The watch belonged to my father. The fidget spinner was the cheapest thing on Amazon–I just wanted something to fiddle with while reading. I should probably note I have actually turned to the silver half dollar more than the spinner for something to fidget with. Since I started carrying the Thrunite I can’t remember how I ever managed to function without having a flashlight on me all the time. I use it more than I ever imagined I would. The one item I’ve noticed pops in and out of my daily carry most is the lip balm. It’s entirely dependant on the weather, and what activities I’m planning to do that day.

“The chance to let your talent truly blossom, perhaps it’s today. Or maybe, it’s tomorrow, the day after tomorrow, or next year. Or perhaps even when you’re 30? In regards to physique, I can’t say much. But if you yourself think that you don’t have talent, then you’ll probably never have it.”
“Iwa-chan, are you my mom?”
he has little glow in the dark star stickers all over his bedroom ceiling, but he actually put them up there really accurately so they make real constellations and stuff
when they were kids (and they still do it to this day), iwaizumi would come to oikawa’s house and they would lay on the bed together looking at the ceiling stars and pretending they’re really outside, mapping out constellations and just talking about everything
Truman Capote’s electric Smith-Corona. Capote purchased the Electra 110 model in LA in 1970 and kept it in his writing room at the Bel Air home of close friend Joanne Carson, and used the typewriter for his final three books. Capote died at Carson’s home in 1984 and the typewriter has not been used since then.
In 1942, George William Patchett of Sterling Armaments Co. designed this submachine gun. It was trialed and found to be a satisfactory service weapon, and about 110 models were issued to the 1st and 6th Airborne Divisions. However, the Ordnance Board saw further potential in the design, and it was considered in 1945 as a replacement for the STEN. Rigorous trials carried on into the early 50’s and finally the Patchett gun was adopted on the 18th of September, 1953 as the standard-issue submachine gun of the British Army, beating BSA’s rival weapon, and several MCEM prototypes from Enfield. Once adopted, it became known as the “L2A1” and later the “L2A3”, and retained the “Patchett” name in official documents, but this didn’t stop British soldiers referring to it simply as the “Sterling”. Pictured are early prototypes, of the kind that saw limited service in WWII.
Interestingly, if the British Army had been fully armed with the experimental EM-2 rifle, as they were planned to before the hasty adoption of the L1A1 SLR, then the Patchett would never have been adopted. Instead, the British Army considered the Madsen M50 as a companion weapon to the EM-2. Maybe in some parallel universe, this was the case!
