Lee Young-ho (Korean: 이영호, born 5 July 1992) is a South Korean StarCraft: Brood War and StarCraft II player who played Terran for the Korean pro-gaming team KT Rolster under the alias By.FlaSh or simply Flash. He made his debut as a StarCraft: Brood War player in 2007 and retired on December 19, 2015. Lee began playing StarCraft II competitively in 2011, until his retirement in December 2015. He subsequently returned to playing Starcraft: Brood War, and started his personal broadcast in February 2016 on the AfreecaTV personal broadcasting platform. Since returning to Brood War, Lee has won first place in Seasons 2, 3, 4, and 8 of the Afreeca Starleague. As of 2020, he is still broadcasting personal broadcasts. He is, along with BoxeR, NaDa, Iloveoov, and SAviOr, regarded as the fifth, final, and greatest of the Bonjwas, a title for players who dominated the Korean Brood War scene over long periods of time. He is almost unanimously considered the greatest player of all-time in the Brood War community.

    Static electricity (like tree lightning) on my ceiling?

    I had a rough night of sleep tonight and woke about 3:30. At one point I was awake on my side and noticed a small burst of light in the room, which I found a bit odd, being familiar with all the things that blink, etc., and not expecting any. But I figured it was just one of those. Then, about...

    How does metering device in an A/C cause flash gas?

    When refrigerant enters the metering device of an air-conditioner, the refrigerant enters the metering device as 100% liquid. When the refrigerant in a straight air-conditioner goes through the metering device, the metering device lowers the pressure of the refrigerant a great deal. The...

    Why do Lifesavers no longer produce a blue flash, but Altoids still do?

    Most nerds know that if you crunch a wintergreen lifesaver in your mouth or with a pair of pliers, it flashes blue light due to triboluminescence, . Breaking the bonds in the sugar molecules releases UV, which is then re-emitted as blue light by the wintogreen flavoring [ Methyl salicylate ] due...

    Why are triple base propellants not used in firearms?

    I would think that the use of triple base propellants in hand-held weapons, such as assault rifles or pistols, would be greatly beneficial as its use would remove the muzzle flash. Also, it would decrease wear-and-tear on the weapon itself, I would think. I have found some people saying that...
