    You probably mean thermal imaging?
    Is that not the same thing? I thought that night vision goggles used thermal imaging to allow you to see infrared light.

    A polar bears fur and fat layer trap heat so well that it canít be seen with night vision goggles.
    How do you know that? I can't see a bear at night so it's trapping heat in it's fur, or maybe it's not where I'm looking.

    I've used both. Night vision goggles either enhance the available light from the moon, stars and other light sources to enable you to see better or use an infrared torch that is invisible to the human eye.

    Thermal imaging uses differing temperatures to create an image and is particularly useful when vision is impaired by smoke, fog or bad weather. There's no hiding from thermal imaging.

    Unless you're a polar bear obviously.

    Or you could just ask your neighbours to leave their curtains open at night to make things easier all round.

    Surely you need both hands to control the drone though...

    A-ha! What if you left your balaclava, thermal underwear and socks in your bed as a decoy?

    The Pacific Ocean is west of the Atlantic but to get to it through the Panama Canal you travel eastwards. (Southeast to be specific).

    When Spitting Image needed a puppet for Jesus, they made it from their puppet for Mike Rutherford from Genesis (from the 'Land of Confusion' video).

    The various Toblerone reference on the MB reminded me - there's a bear hidden in the Toblerone Matterhorn picture because it s made in Bern which translates as city of bears.

    There's also an arrow in the Fed-ex logo.

    And it's very cleverly disguised. Someone pointed it out to me about a year ago.

    There are quite a few others too. Amazon has a smile from a to z. Baskin Robbins ice cream has the number 31 in their logo which is the number of flavours they do. Can't remember the other at the moment.

    If you tear up a Toblerone box (as long as it has the name on all three sides), you can spell "To be or not to be".

    The funny thing is, once you know it's there you can't help but see it.

    On a similar note, Homer Simpson's hair and ears form the letters M and G - Matt Groening's initials.

    This isn't actually useless but rather is something very interesting I found out due to a work related query today and is something to bear in mind when making consumer choices.

    Of the 157 commercial composting facilities in the UK not a single one will accept plastic alternatives marketed as compostable. These items will only compost in very specific conditions (70 degrees Fahrenheit and 75%+ humidity), put these in a regular garden compost bin and they will do nothing. About 96% of this stuff is currently ending up in landfill or dumped at sea where it degrades at a rate comparable to regular plastics. Consumer and retailer conscience is currently miles ahead of the facilities available in UK and that will remain so for a few years yet.

    It's worth considering that a recyclable and/or reusable plastic might currently be a far, far better option than some of the 'guilt free' alternatives.

    Thatís quite a surprising fact, especially as at my work we are currently working on a similar project.

    On the logo theme, FedEx have a great one in their logo where there is an arrow in the dead space between the E & the X depicting moving forwards - again as someone said, you'll never stop seeing that one now!

    Aye, it's be mentioned already.
    TBH, I'm not 100% convinced that the arrow was intentional. Might have been a "hey, look what I've just noticed" by the designer after the fact.
