Keeping Up Appearances

For a company trying to conceal its true intent, one useful strategy might be the old Razzle-Dazzle:

The USS Gillispie, Headed To Your County Next?

From the Wikipedia entry link above:

"At first glance Dazzle seems unlikely camouflage, drawing attention to the ship rather than hiding it, but this technique was developed after the Allied Navies were unable to develop effective means to disguise ships in all weather.
Dazzle did not conceal the ship but made it difficult for the enemy to estimate its type, size, speed and heading. The idea was to disrupt the visual rangefinders used for naval artillery. Its purpose was confusion rather than concealment.[1] An observer would find it difficult to know exactly whether the stern or the bow is in view; and it would be equally difficult to estimate whether the observed vessel is moving towards or away from the observer's position."


That makes a lot of sense now, doesn't it?


  1. The old "Razzle-Dazzle" makes perfect sense being a corporation like AEHI and knowing the CEO is an ex-Navy guy! What next?! Maybe CCD?

  2. What is next is "Frazzle". The CEO's losing it and my guess is he probably has his bags packed to execute his "exit plan". Maybe China, South America? It worked well for the Nazi's. Fits Gillispie's arrogance and uncontrollable temper!
