    The first thing you do..right after getting your new Zebralight SC700d,is flip it on in full 3000-lumen glory and dumbly look right at it.

    Didn't realize it would be so much brighter than my 1400-lumen SC64w.

    When you convince your coworkers to buy a good flashlight. 219 MDC just bought by my colleague. I'm kinda jealous. That's a kick-ass first light.

    When you spend over £50 in an afternoon on assorted broken flashlights and bits, in the hopes you can make something good out of them, not even realising you could buy a decent brand new one for that much! (true story)

    I agree. I look up to and admire people who rescue broken, not so decent brand flashlights and make them work again and/or better.
    Think of how hostile the average surface of the earth is, and realize half of the surface of the earth is more hostile than that.

    When you go into a home goods store to buy a cheap nail clipper and the shop assistants ask you if you want to buy another portable refrigerator...
    Then they say to me: "since you have bought so many of them, we asked ourselves what job she does, we hypothesized that she carries organs for work"
    It made me laugh at their surprised faces when I explained to them that I don't transport any medical organs but I use the fridges to keep flashlights, batteries and chargers in them.

    I started years ago and now I have 17 of these fridges in the house (I try to organize the content into categories and put labels outside but lately I have been a little confused, they should be emptied and rearranged)

    When you buy a new bike because your old one can't fit the headlight you bought for it.
