    The first thing you do after charging the Eneloop AAs in your Fenix TK40 is...
    Turn it on (on turbo strobe,no less..) and point it at a mirror.
    (Then you wonder what light to use to find the nearest set of welding goggles..Ow,my eyes!!)

    You might be a flashaholic when you read the other two threads exactly like this and decided to start another one anyway.

    you buy a new car, just so you can rip out the headlights for your latest mod/project and sell the rest of the car as used parts.

    At least you won't look nearly as goofy using that flashlight as you would if you bought the headlight version:http://www.rei.com/product/796685
    What were they thinking when they made that thing? Is the gag gift market large enough to warrant making this product? The only way to make it more embarrassing for the headlight user is if you take off or cover up the last three letters in LEGO.

    You're at the endodontist's having a root canal retreated, and the doctor can't get enough illumination into the open canal of the tooth, so you turn on your modded ARC AAA, set it to the brightest level, hand it to the assistant who then points it in your mouth, prompting the doctor to say, "that's much bettter."

    (That really happened last year)

    You think your flashlight story is so interesting that you immediately submit a duplicate post.

    And your 3 year old child begs you to

    PS: Just tell your wife/girlfriend that the electrical contact or wiring in the rooms light fixture is messed up and you may need a electrician to look at it, tell her to stay away from the switch it could be dangerous. This has worked for me for a little while but I'm not sure how much longer I can milk it.

    You might be a flashaholic if...

    - You manage to drain all of your primary batteries during daytime, or inside your well-lit apartment... ON PURPOSE!

    - You totally missed a date with a hot girl, because you stayed home reading Candle Power Forums latest Flashlight Reviews.

    - You got fired because your boss caught you looking at Flashlight Porn during work.

    - The ammount of stuff you store in your flashlight spare part box, far exceed the quantity of toys and games that your 4 kids have in their rooms... Combined!

    If you ever wander around with your friends and make it to a dark area, they all look at you. "No, my night vision's quite good enough, thanks."

    "Why DON'T I have a head-size spotlight in my school bag" seemed like a good answer at the time. Others agreed when you set treelines ablaze with light at a half mile.

    1) You're in an accident. The paramedics show up and start working on you. Everything goes dark. You find yourself floating naked staring down at your body. The paramedics say "His heart's stopped," and keep working on your body. You start to float away, but you say, "My lights!" and reach down and grab 3 of your EDC lights from your body.

    You find yourself floating down a long smoky tunnel. You hear voices and see shapes at the end. There's a light shining from the other end and you're drifting towards it. You look at the light and say, "That's pathetic. What is that, an old Luxeon?" You turn on the dimmest of your EDC lights and point it down the tunnel.

    You stop floating towards the light. You hear the voices say, "Wow, that's the most beautiful light I've ever seen." You see your dead ancestors floating toward you oohing and aahing and staring spellbound into your light.

    You hear a voice from the end of the tunnel telling your ancestors, "Don't go into the light."

    You find yourself drifting back down the tunnel and wake up looking at the paramedics. You quickly check to see that your flashlights are OK. The paramedic says, "Man that was amazing! Nothing was working at all, and all of a sudden, your heart started beating and you woke up."

    You take a close look at the paramedic, and ask, "Say, is that the new Polarion? Can I see it?"

    2) You tell one of your friends this story and they say, "Pictures or it didn't happen."
    If once you start down the light path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will.
