google yehudi lights.   8)
I cant find the pictures now but they strung a bunch of low voltage lights around a tank on a ridgeline and it pretty much disappeared.
Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

That was just coming into development for aircraft during WWII when radar made it obsolete.

to a certain degree yes but its still a useful trick when your down to visual ranges or your not using radar.
IIRC the test vehicle was M113 and the lights used we below 20v.

Saw a couple of those a few years back at the Mirabel airport in Quebec.  They'd use them to transport Aussie F/18's over, so L3 could fix the wings.

The Shuttle was named the 'Buran', which translates, IIRC, to "Snowstorm'.
