Doing Something Stupid
Have you ever bought a new flashlight and turned it on and then looked at it to see how bright it is? Well let me tell you I bought this 60 led motion light from Northern Tool. It's solar powered so I didn't think it would be all that bright. I just needed a light to put out by the trailer for when we drive up at night we don't step on a dang snake when we get out of the truck and walk up to the door. The instructions said you need to put the solar panel out in the sun and charge it for 3 days before use. Well I put the panel out in the sun and in a couple of hours it got dark on me. I kept looking out there at that damn light thinking to myself I don't think I can wait 3 days to see how bright that light is. I figure 3 hours charging it ain't gonna be that bright anyway but I just had to test it out. I went out there and grabbed that light and like a dumb ass looked right at it and turned it on, you know some people have said in near death experience's some have seen a bright white light, let me tell you I thought I was fixing to meet the man himself, that damn light dang near blinded me, it was so bright I had to call the wife out and shine it in her eyes so so she could get the full force of 60 L E D's, we might be speaking next month again I hope, anyway I don't know in the long run how well this will hold up but I sure like it and am thinking about buying another one. I paid $39.00 for it with a $5.00 off coupon. A heck of a deal.
