Dazzle Ships

The other day Chaz and I were listening to OMD's (Orchestral Manoeuvers in the Dark's) album, Dazzle Ships. Chaz was telling me about the album's name and it's origin. Dazzle painting was used on ships during World War I and World War II as a means to camouflage them so that their speed and heading could not be detected. Look how crazy they are...
