    Heard YEARS ago in the school playground when I was a nipper, to some odd tune or other...
    "Hit it, stamp it, mash it with a bat,
    Lob it, chuck it, throw it at the cat!" :rofl:

    To see what my dogs were chasing in my yard tonight. Few weeks ago they killed a racoon.

    Used my ThruNite TH-20 headlamp to clean the inside of our coffee machine.

    Family was amazed about how good the coffee tastes now - and made jokes about me looking "goofy" with the headlamp on.

    Maybe next time I clean the machine I may "just by bad luck" install a part the wrong way and watch how goofy they look when the machine doesn't work the way they expect it :showoff:

    Used my Olight S1R Baton Mk1 to see where a leak in the radiator of my car (a 2007 Mitsubishi Shogun Mk4) was coming from. Just above the radiator drain valve, as it happens :mad: One new radiator to be ordered :(

    When I take my dog for her last walk of the evening and curb her at the appropriate time - I usually need to illuminate what she has eliminated so I can bag it and dump it.

    You are in luck, this stuff is now approved in Ireland, but it will take much longer than the spray you used...

    In a hotel with my spouse we had a need to have some light during the night to navigate to the bathroom. As this was a pretty remote area there was no streetlights and the moon was also almost not present.

    I used my ThruNite TH20 headlamp in the firefly mode (0,3 lumens) to shine the bathroom wall - worked perfectly.

    Before this, the high mode of the same flashlight help to track down the mosquito in our room - this little thing now "stays forever there" :cool:

    Was picking up Chinese food last night and while waiting a ceiling Tile fell out and hit the floor!
    I pulled out the ZL and hit the area where it had been and water was leaking in pretty good there.

    The Woman of the place said,"Oh you carry the Flashlight?!"........I think?

    Had to use one Today to read the stupid PIN number that Sonos now puts on each device in order to add them to a system?

    Of course they are tiny and dark grey on black plastic and literally impossible to see with no light and almost impossible with one,what are they actually thinking?!

    And if that isnt enough they are on the bottom or back of each device where there is no way to see them if installed first.

    I picked up my son last night outside of a very crowded event venue with no well-designated pick-up/drop-off zone. The strobe on my RovyVon Aurora A3 made a nice beacon for him to find me in the dark and the hoard.

    Nice :) I used the strobe function on my Olight a year or so ago to guide in an ambulance to a dementia victim who'd had a fall in the street. Useful feature that I won't do without on any of my lights, now.

    I used this Streamlight Protac90 today while browsing a dimly lit antique mall. Some of the overhead lights were off making it difficult to view the merchandise.
