Apparently we call non-flashlight people "Muggles"?

As far as I can tell, that term gained popularity from the Andúril 1 “muggle mode” that disables advanced features. It may have been used by some before that, but it definitely helped its spread.

not that I know of... I've only seen it once, when someone referred to his non-flashoholic friends as "muggles" when lending a flashlight.
Other than being cringe, it's also kinda fascist to be honest

oh I meant it in the ancient rome kinda way, not the post-WW1 italy kinda way, I meant it's pretty elitist/pompous/arrogant

Harry Potter enthusiasts having fun with Harry Potter terminology. There are bound to be some humans who will be sensitive about something, right?

Too bad the article did not cover the wonders of exploration in darkness; Maybe discuss more details of technological advances and showcase the high art of flashlight fashion.
