“The greatest pleasure I know is to do a good action by stealth and have it found out by accident.” ― Charles Lamb
There was a photo somewhere on the net of a soldier wearing the old UCP pattern (said to have been selected on a whim by some brass hat) laying on his sofa, the upholstery of which had a pattern so similar, it blended right in.

At Thanksgiving I asked if there are forks for the mac and cheese (it's a thing). Everyone in the room yelled directions at me for the forks right in front of me but I cannot see them. Clear plastic. I never expected invisible forks and there they are sticking up like a bouquet except in a scene from the Predator. (another thing. plastic service) They were Predator forks. It blew mi mente. Thanksgiving mac and cheese with invisible plastic fork and you ask yourself how you got this lucky and what it was you did that was so right.
I don't want to blend in so much as not be present. Introvert thing.
Chip, you da man.This was back when the troops were screaming for MultiCam and that was the best argument anybody could find the then-current pattern was a joke.
How may wars are fought on someone's couch?
Portland airport carpet sox. I don't think whoever that is wants to blend in. S/he is signalling hipster. (Don't ask me why.)
