Thread: You Just Know Your A Flashaholic When......

    When you're watching a "film" specifically made for Adults, and there's a scene where one of the "actors" is searching a darkened building with a flashlight....

    Yeah, you start trying to I.D. the flashlight. Even though you know there's no way you'd be able to post your discovery on that one thread about flashlights in movies or TV shows.

    .... and it drives you crazy because every actor you've ever seen searching a darkened building is always using a flashlight with the narrowest beam you've ever seen.

    HEY POLICEMAN! DON'T YOU THINK A FLASHLIGHT WITH SOME FLOOD WOULD BE USEFUL!!???

    When you concentrate on the beam pattern in a movie scene, rather than the movie.

    Congrats C.G.!

    Experienced that very thing myself. In a similar vein......

    When you specifically buy a cheap light and carry it to use as the one that gets loaned out to others.

    Hollywood used to do a better job getting the details right.

    I think it has more to do with creating suspense and providing dark areas for bad guys to appear from than equipping actors with proper lighting tools.

    That's an excellent point. (Still annoying though when it's done in a scene.)

    Yeah, I always joke that there wouldn't be much of a movie if the actors had flashlights I typically carry, haha. There would be a lot less suspense that way and they'd be a lot safer too.

    You know you're a flashaholic when you have perfectly adequate outdoor lighting at your house but you only turn it on for others and instead rely on your EDC when you go outside.

    It's the one that stay silent that you need to worry about. Sleepers.

    .... you refer to your flashlights as My Precious.

    I don't do that, but if you do, you should realize that you're a flashaholic.

    You have to decide which light to use for basic tasks.... brightness, hcri, titanium, aluminum, Natural Ha or Black

    When you haven't been here for a while because you have been spending your $$$ on another hobby/passion/habit, but when you take a trip to see your family in Dallas and realize that you did a rather odd thing...you took only 1 flashlight, and that weirds you out enough that you come to CPF to confess!
    So what light is that at the end of the tunnel?

    When you buy a updated version of a light you already own "just because".

    (Guilty:I ordered a new 2018 Black Diamond Storm 350 lumen-and I already own the older 100 lumen version).

    Amazon is a evil enabler...they were selling it on sale for $36.95 shipped-Thank you Amazon Prime.
