It's getting ridiculous.. I should stay away from BLF for awhile

My wife start to think this hobby of mine is getting out of control.. please show me picture of your collections ( hopefully bigger than mine ) so I can convince her this is normal :bigsmile:

Since the last time I had a disaster slowly I had to rebuild my shelves and alas.. after I added 1 more shelf, I can stop buying more to keep the space from being empty Smile

Do you think this is out of control? :~ !

I think I'm going to need to stay away from BLF for awhile.. too many group buys ( part of it is my faultSealed ) 

with Nitecore TM36 from Banggood is coming next week, I think I'm done buying light for this year.. also especially after modded SRK from RMM is coming too,.. and also waiting for SolarStorm Warrior from Wallbuys, Jetbeam SRA40, another Smallsun T08, F13 from gearbest ( if it's even going to show up one of these days) Ultrafire "Bling Dragon" SS light from ebay Sigh.. I really need to stop as I'm running out of space on my selves Yell

The only way to do a great work is to love what you do.

Theres a point where one can remove the moniker of crazy by gifting lights.
But youve moved beyond the realm of normal gifting, ie: family, close friends etc.
To gift, you would need to walk up to strangers in car parks and offer them lights.

You may have crossed a line.

Or he's going to have to start doing genealogy.  Cousins 22 times removed are going to be getting lights.

The low mode should be lower.

I can see the top shelf sagging under the sheer weight Silly

I would suggest calling flashaholics101 anonymous for advice on how to control this addiction Wink

I on the other hand need to take a course on how to acquire more lights.

Donations greatly accepted to further enrich my addiction Cash

Did you ever think it might be prudent to have 2 sets of batteries for each light? Just in case of an emergency or something. Like a Zombie Apocalypse! Yep, the habit gets worse.

Hey Babe, check out my new light!!

I think I have more batteries than lights to put them in. The closest I have to that is my drawer of unmodded Mininags and Solitaires.

Three Tanna leaves to give him life, nine to give him movement. But what if he eats the whole bag?

That’s what I do… which is what makes torch buying more expensive. Oh a Tk61 only costs $140? Nope, you’ve got to buy another 8 batteries for it so add another $40.

Your middle shelf is too crowded, looks cramped, not to mention the upcoming.
Better send some to me to make it in order Big Smile

Why do you have so many unopened boxes? Do you sell them? I don’t understand…

My English isn’t perfect but I’m trying to improve it. If you see something that doesn’t sound right or is just plain wrong, please feel free to point it out! Smile

I’m with you daylighter. I’ve spent $3500 since April …. Time for a break.

Would you mind keeping the wrong flashlight?
Best wish, May

Actually.. Yes I did have batteries for each of my light and have some more spare for “ just in case”

You know.. it’ll be one of my bucket list.. just take all of them to some place where it’s nice and dark and just turn the whole thing all at once, if it’s not much a hassle to carry all of them, it weight like a ton Wink
