Nice little keychain gadget – Survival Whistle with Compass Thermometer and Magnifier Reviews

Pros:
Fluid filled compass is accurate. The thermometer is a nice little feature even though it only gives you a rough temperature range.
Cons:
The whistle is quite useless as it produces very little sound. Should you be stuck in the middle of nowhere, shout with your mouth. Forget the whistle. Nobody will hear you.
Other:
There is a little magnifying lens. But can such a small lens start a fire or fry some ants?
Lord, please forgive me for all those ants I sizzled to a crisp when I was only a child. All living creatures have a soul and desire to live. Have compassion and become vegetarian!
Bottomline:
Carry this with you at all times. You never know when you may get stuck in a whiteout blizzard and must hike your way to the nearest civilization. Then you may end up featured in the "I shouln't be alive " TV program.
