in the ^0`s Car and Driver called the Opel Kaddett one of the worst cars they`d ever tested and even photographed it in a junkyard. I wouldn`t be caught dead in one of those. lol

There is actually no truly effective way to camouflage a ship of any real size, so in the second world war, an alternative route was taken on many ships. The design did very little to help camouflage the ships, but it did distort their pattern, and make how fast, and their direction of travel harder to discern.

SEMPER FI DO OR DIE! HAPPY BIRTHDAY USMC!

"My Fiat Ritmo shows another form of dazzle-painting. I did this one in 1992. Especially in the dark, this is a very distracting design."

Why the hell would you want to create "a very distracting design" on your car that becomes especially effective in the dark?

"Hey Captain - there`s an enemy ship!"
"Is it coming towards us, or going away from us?"
"Jeez, I can`t tell."
"Well, it`s probably safe to leave them alone, then."

Wow, I had never heard of this before. I can just see the inventor trying to convince the navy to actually paint their ships like that.

Noah started it. He strapped the zebras to the front of the ark to keep them from screwing the horses.
