Yeah, because that would be loads of fun and makes way more sense than a flashlight. Maybe id could have bought the rights to The Cure's 'Pictures of You', so it could be playing in the background. Pardon my sarcasm, but that just gets a bit convoluted IMO.
Now the flare idea has some merit... Might have been interesting, but that might also leave you in a situation where there is total darkenss and you have no flares left.
