Silly string is also used by infantry to locate trip wires.

I heard about that. Folks sending care packages to Iraq and Afghanistan were asking for it for that exact purpose.

Silly String is now "military grade"? :lol:

After they spend $400Billion on the program there will be a military grade version.


It won't shoot as far, stick as well, hold together in anything but air conditioned, indoor conditions or generally work like the cheap dollar store variety- but it will glow when seen through NVG's and probably cause a litany of medical issues for the users in 20 years or so.
