              PLEASE, tell me you are NOT an explorer or junior and were just adding to the discussion as a senior member??
              Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

                      I would presume that he means an attachment for his helmet light. I think I've seen what he's talking about in a Gall's catalog. It's a piece of molded plastic made to fit over the top of a flashlight to make a wand of sorts of some color or another to direct traffic with. Sorta reminiscent of a "Lackland Laser" (Lackland AFB requires flights of cadets who wander around at night to carry them so we don't get run over) or the colored wand a flight-line marshaler uses to direct aircraft on the tarmac.
