You have to see this thing to believe it:

Check out the various vids.

It's a flashlight and a fire starter for your campfire or stove. Heck, it IS a stove.

Yee ha,

Stargazer

Downside: The weight of batteries for a one-week trip would be greater than most ULers' entire base weight. Still, I covet one more than words can say. ;-)

Yee ha,

Stargazer

P.S. How DOES one successfully post a link on these forums???

Like this: <a href="http://wickedlasers.com/lasers/The_Torch-74-41.html">wicked lasers</a>

Make sure to type out the beginning and end yourself (no need to bold, of course) -- do NOT copy and paste from my example above. Et voila:

wicked lasers

OK, did my good deed for the day. :)

Hmm, sort of a battery-powered MSR Reactor. Easier to navigate by, I presume.
Not to miss the laser that comes with this warning: "Do not point at satellite."

Cheers,

Do not point at satellite.

Is that there just to "highlight" the product's power -- like the Viagra warning to see your doctor if erection persists over 4 hours?

Pointing a laser at an airplane can land you in jail. It is a big problem.

Agree, although I was referring to "pointing at satellite". :)

I think it was old McGyver show he used the aluminum body of a Mag light as a barrel for improvised sling shot/crossbow that shot Nail darts launcher to take a man down.
McGyver list of materials mag light body,duct tape,Several rubber bands, larger framing nails, with duct tape winglets on the nail darts.
