So you don't think a flash is a bit more dispersed than a laser beam is?

And no, most people don't enjoy direct frontal flash being blasted
into their eyes either. It's why I try not to use it whenever possible
to avoid the "wincing" expressions you always get after they get hit
with the first one.

Only trolls go off-topic from the thread title. It's their typical
red-herring displacement-activity tactic whenever they can't refute what
had been previously stated.

Eat another red-herring. It's a troll's favorite dish.
