Homer J. Simpson said it best when he proclaimed, “To alcohol! The cause of, and solution to, all of life’s problems!” That phrase was put on display in New Zealand recently, as a group of residents built a makeshift island out of sand to avoid the ban on drinking alcohol in public places. As reported by BBC, the people who built the island enjoyed New Year’s Eve with a few cold ones under the fireworks in “international waters.” The tiny island, which was outfitted with benches and coolers, remained intact on New Year’s Day, and even the police had a laugh about it when they discovered the brilliant plan. Dilly dilly.


A pocket square is a touch of old school class. It’s an element that casually lets people know you’re a gentleman. This knife from Gerber borrows its name from the humble pocket square because it too is sharp and dressy. Eschewing superfluous design elements for a sleek, clean appearance, the Gerber Pocket Square Knife is refined and mature. The machined aluminum handle is paired with a 3” drop point blade and an ambidextrous thumb lift for one stunning folder. If James Bond relied on a pocket knife, this would be it.
