    Should make a good aiming point for his opponent’s lance.

    re: King Shark
    .
    Good point. And it happens in real life.
    .
    In the 1879 Zulu War, the British were issued pretty white hats with a big shiny brass medal. Unlike the movie, the Brits almost immediately took that metal medal off (it made for such a good mark and reflected the sun) and used coffee or local roots to color the cloth helmet something less conspicuous.
    .
    In WWII, despite the imagery of pretty white stars on the sides (and glacis plates of tanks) and fronts of U.S. vehicles in combat it post-WWII war films, there was a problem with the white U.S. star being put in the middle of vehicle sides. It made for a wonderful mark to shoot at. The solution: green paint.

    One of the BATMAN graphic novels actually played on your idea. As the Batman fell off a building top after getting shot in the chest, he asked through the fourth wall, “why do you think I have a target on my chest?” It kept him from being shot in the head; people naturally aimed for the target. Under the bat symbol was bulletproof armor.

    I was at a Revolutionary War reenactment recently, and the interpreter – who was dressed as a British officer – said the officers often removed their metal breastplates which marked their rank, precisely because they made good targets.

    But will Rodney think of this?

    I thought the sign said Mike the Magic. That would have been funny.

    I think that’s what’s known as “imbedded advertising”; sorta like Will Smith driving an Audi in I Robot.

    It has a target painted on the back.

    Probably not, but then when was the last time anybody saw his front rather than his back in pitched battle? ;)

    Actually the post I responded to has been removed so my post no longer is valid. One missed vowel is ‘misspellings’ ?? I think you really need to get a life. The original poster I replied to thought it was funny to rip into Rush Limbaugh out of the blue but I’m sure with your leanings you would have thought it was hilarious.
