    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.

    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)

    You name a pet after a flashlight.


    Meet Maggie the Mag-Lite head parakeet.
    He is a peach front conure that Mrs Fixer rescued. Somebody inherited the bird and dropped him off at a pet store only saying "he's 15 and hates women". So I got to name him.

    It was between PK, head light or Mag-Lite head. I chose Maggie because PK don't do warm beams, head lamp just sounded weird and an old incan minimag with near dead batteries puts out as much orange light as old Maggie.

    Your coworkers ask you where you got your headlight so they can get one, and they try to order it online only to find out you got yours in the first batch made, and the next time the light will be in stock is at least a month later.

    When you start purchasing lights for yourself under the guise of anniversary/birthday/X-mas gifts for your family:
    Hey, dad...You remember that Prometheus Alpha Titanium Blue Label I got you last X-mas? I need to borrow it for a week. Thanks!

    When you pass up buying a Nitecore TM28,simply because it's only available in cool white tint.

    (The light otherwise seems awesome...but my Olight S1R II and my 2 Zebralights- SC64w and SC700d- have spoiled me with their neutral tint.)

    When you start a thread about being content with the lights you have and then immediately start looking at other lights and thinking about what you can sell to afford getting them.

    When your flashlight is bright enough to drive by and you cut off your car's headlights and actually do it.
    When talking to your wife, you refer to your flashlight collection as "our babies".
    When you get depressed because you were put on dayshift and you don't get enough dark time to play with your flashlights anymore.

    When you kinda make friends with an officer by getting on the subject of flashlights and he shows you his flashlight and you show him yours and then invite him to CPF.

    Try working on the lighting crew of a company of electricians. You get all the dark time you want to play with your lights, day or night. Worked for me.

    At this time I work for a security company- just about perfect for nighttime usage, but not daytime- can't even show off what they can do.

    I used my ML25 to look inside a pipe last week mike. It was bright out and the pipe was dark so the thrower beam was perfect.

    Believe me, you'll find uses and your coworkers will no longer ask "why do you carry a flashlight in daytime?" but will ask "hey mike, do you have your flashlight handy?"

    That'd be cool if they did bykfixer. I mainly sit at the front gate and make sure the truck drivers wear their masks on the property- I guess you can say I'm mask security. Most of the time they leave the place at 4pm and I have to lock the gates and then go and sit at the other part near the tracks till my relief comes. Really it's kinda boring.
    I kill time on here and listening to youtube podcasts. If I wait too late in the day to check my oil I pull out a flashlight or check the water in my radiator.

    You're putting up some Christmas lights around the house, and your wife/SO/partner says: 'Honey we need to pick up some more lights this year - we're gonna come up short'. The next day when a box shows up from Acme Flashlight Co. with 5 new lights in it and you're caught, all you have time to say is: 'But honey, your said' .... before she picks one up and hits you with it.
