We've seen reports in Time (sorry . . . promise we don't make a habit of reading it) and CBS affiliate KOVR relating that troops in Iraq and Afghanistan have discovered that Silly String is great kit to find otherwise invisible tripwires. Of course, Silly String isn't standard issue gear, so families and friends have been answering the call and adding it to care packages.
Silly String: It's not just for birthday parties anymore. Don't go door-kicking without it!
