This one might rid us of some of the Mythbusters gang for good.
The thing with the flash-light struck me as really dumb too, just a really, really obvious thing you'd think they would have known better to not do. It's attract WAY too much attention. I'd think some moonlight and a degree of night vision would give one SOME level of sight at night without waving around a flashlight attracting attention.
On a dark night, shining a flashlight through your fingers will let through just enough light so you can see where you're stepping but won't be noticed from a distance. The scene might have worked better if they'd been doing that and accidentally dropped the flashlight.
