78 Tools for Writing and Previewing Markdown Markdown is a text-based markup language created by John Gruber in 2004 as a way to write in an easy-to-read format that can be converted into HTML.

The World's Brightest DIY Flashlight Will Blind You With Its Glory Think it's rough getting blasted with someone else's high beams? You wouldn't want to find yourself on the wrong side of this totally absurd DIY flashlight.

As for output, rctestflight figures it puts out around 90,000 lumens, a measure of visible light emission. Of course there's more to a good flashlight than just brute-force lumen power, but even the beefiest Maglites top out at around 700.
