What did you use your flashlight for today?

traffic stops, searching house for a guy with felony warrants, and lighting up a water tower just to show off. Malkoff hound dog neutral for the win.

Hello World!
Quark Pro (123 cells) to look for my son's ping pong ball at night outside on high/turbo. Unfortunately could not locate it.
Same flashlight later at night on mid when wife heard a rat squeal in the house. (or so she thought). Inspected every nook and crannies regular lights would not reach. No rat found.
They were most probably outside, thanks God.

Used the SF Fury to find a lost screw outside in front of the house - I took off a light housing because the light quit working and the wind blew it off the ledge where I left it. Found it though!

I used my Preon P2 to inspect some electronics inside a electric vehicle quick charger. My coworkers were impressed with the "small sun." One even pulled out a harborfreight light to compare. It was easily beat, despite it "[having] nine LEDs!"

Been using my Fenix PD32 UE and Xeno E03 for the last 2 days in heavy rain. Trying to check our under construction new house inside and out specially if there is a leak inside. They did a pretty good job performing in this condition.

Used my HDS hi CRI to switch the breakers back on in my house, as I tripped them when messing around with one of my PC's (obviously incorrectly) :shakehead

Watching Pandorum for the Nth time, this time with my Zebra SC51c, HF copper neutral and HF-R zoom instead of the usual Quark tactical. Poor guy would wish he had my lights if he knew...

while heading to h.q. at the end of a nite shift, my partner and i were sent back out to district because the relieving squad was still in line-up. we arrived to a house that borders a park where the homeowner stated there was an unconscious man on her lawn. we checked around the house with my partner's streamlight stinger and me with an led strion just to make sure he wasn't lurking there (the park attracts a smarmy bunch after hours). i told her she should get flood lights and keep them on a couple hours at night, whereby she flipped a switch and illuminated the entire neighborhood. for some reason she shuts them off on her way to bed, instead of leaving them on till morning.

as we drove back towards h.q. again, we saw a body lying on the lawn at the park. because this part of the park is pitch black, i pulled out a mag charger with a 1000 lumen led conversion, so my partner and i wouldn't be targets with our spotlight on the scene. my partner tapped the guys foot with his light, and he didn't budge. i shined the light about 3 feet from the guys eyes, he jumped up took off running. i looked at my partner, he looked at his watch, and before we could make a decision to chase him or not, he clothes-lined himself with a low hanging branch, sending him back to unconsciousness.

a check of the spot were he was found revealed a lunchbag-sized paper bag filled with a few thousand dollars worth of various drugs he apparently was imbibing in during the course of the night. a rescue squad arrived to check him out, and found he had dislocated his neck. we escorted him to the hospital, waited till the court opened in the morning to have summonses issued, tagged the drugs and made 12 hours overtime on top of the 8-hour shift i worked.

Well. I guess you beat my "I took my flashlight to go pee in the middle of the night" story. :D

Where do you work so I don't move there?

I used my Fenix E11 to check a couple cars' brake pads so I didn't have to take the wheels off. Nowhere near as exciting.
