Found this one at a marina, but they are widely available, for about $10.

Like all good male airstreamers I can light up more stuff.
I have 8 flashlights with me,6 in the trailer and 2 in TV.TV has one Big Maglite and one rechargable Streamlight.
Trailer has one Surefire 1000 lumen tactical flashlight,2 small AA battery Maglites,one BIG flashlight that uses LOTS of D batteries,one tactical light on my Glock 23 and one on my Benelli auto loading shotgun.
I now can light up the world, the bad guys or bears.

Doug believed that real men like flashlights, pocket knives, and handguns.

Where do dogs fit into this list?

The reason why men are attracted to all of these items are to fill all of the pockets in our pants, shirt and jacket. This also explains why most men wear the same clothes for several weeks at a time, as it takes so long to empty their pockets. Women have purses. Men have pockets.

...And since you are wearing a belt to hold your pants up... why not add a holster, wire cutters to mend barbed wire fence, a Brunton Compass to at least find your camp site and last of all... finger nail clippers in a pocket for trimming line when fly fishing, cutting string on packages, pulling prickly pear needles from themselves and, oh yes, trimming finger nails.

To find all of these items a flash light is required. See... it all makes sense. Doesn't it?

Doug was not a dog man, never having had one as a child. They lived in town, his mom believed dogs belonged in the country.

He always said "I've never had a dog", to which I would respond "no, but a dog has had you".

In fact, more than one dog had him, and he loved Lily especially...and, surprisingly to him, very dearly.

I have one of those and besides it disassembling itself in my pocket, it is one bright LED lamp!
One of my faves in fact and it is kept nearby.
Like many others, I have a plethora of illuminating devices. Don't want to be left in the dark...

You absolutely positively must look at the Dec 31, 2014 Comic Drabble (today's comic) which must have been written just for this post.

Idroba,

Absolutely perfect! Great comic strip! My husband gave flashlights to two friends for Christmas--must be in the y-chromosome!

Landshark... at least we on this Thread understand this is a "light subject matter".

Tread lightly when you cannot see at night.

I said my ambition was to be a normal human being on some Thread, somewhere. I may not be the brightest in the room, but the lightest at a eating contest.

Shall anyone else want to lighten things up a bit more?

Did I tell you about the Dark Sucker Theory? There is no such thing as light, only dark. The devices you call lights are actually dark suckers, they remove dark.

Several proofs: What color is a candle wick? Black, correct? That is because it has been sucking dark into it. Also, you know how an incandescent bulb gets black with use? See, sucking dark leaves a little. Fluorescent tubes get (dark) at the ends... LED's are very new and very good at sucking dark, but eventually you will see some which have gone dark.

Dark is neither created, nor destroyed. When you use what we call a flashlight (a portable dark sucker) the dark is sucked into the batteries, until they are full. When they are full they are discarded, but eventually, in the landfill, they corrode and all the dark leaks back out. When you see the "smokestacks" of a power plant, they are releasing dark back into the world. Note the dark puff that comes out of your exhaust pipe on your car... that is the dark which was sucked into your dark storage unit (aka battery) last night when you were out driving. It comes out as a concentrated puff of dark the next day. A hydro plant puts dark back into the water, you know how dark it is deep in a river, lake or ocean. Some also think that dark is heavier than light, so it sinks to the bottom. That is unproven yet.

Dark can be pushed around by powerful forces such as the sun. In the daytime the sun pushes the dark to the other side of the planet, but it slides back over the light areas as the earth turns.

This is just the tip of the knowledge about Dark, and the dark sucker theory. You can postulate other things when you put your mind to it.
