I suspect that they come out of someone's fallout shelter that they stocked back during the Reagan administration. As you can tell from the bag they have only another five months of shelf life.

What's your keychain tool of choice?

I'm a compulsive reader of "what's in your go bag" postings.

I've realized that the keychain is an even better preparedness placement, and there is a ton of choice - thumb drives with a bootable os image and/or key (get it?) data, multi-tools galore, beer bottle opener...

What do you recommend? My only criterion is that it must be tsa ok for carrying on a plane.

This is what is on my keychain (a TSA-approved Leatherman, complete with Google and CorpEng logos): https://goo.gl/photos/6PmRR9YWVUFY8z8w5

Yeah, I heard that they included two batteries in the box and that the battery is only rated for 290 shots when using the EVF.

It's too bad that UHS-II isn't supported on this model. But you may be able to find a faster SD card without sacrificing storage space if you're willing to pay a premium for it: http://www.cameramemoryspeed.com/sony-a7r-ii/sd-card-comparison/
