Haha, I actually find that a little humorous. I used to bring my pocket knife to school everyday. Course I graduated the year before they decided we needed security. Go figure.
I actually had a smiliar idea to this quite a while ago when I first got my messenger bag, though after I loaded everything in there I realized that I had an extra ten pounds hanging on my side now. But for the sake of conversation lemme try and recall what I had with me.
– My 64 fl oz bottle of water that I still carry in my messenger bag (and when it’s full thats where most of the weight comes from)
-A rain poncho
-A stapler (never know when you gotta staple something)
-Mini mag-lite flashlight(which also magically disappeared)
-A green gem (that somehow found its way out of the bag and ran away from me : ()
-Some pens, pencils, markers, and highlighters that are still in there
-And then whatever else my little heart desired.
I didn’t need to worry about the something like a swiss card because I usually carry a pocket knife with me at all times (until recently when both my usual one and my back up both disappeared. To go hangout with the green gem and flashlight no doubt.)
