An ability to see yourself in the mirror of the projector was, no doubts, more valuable asset of this device than the high intensity beam by itself. You might ask me why, as my statement would rather sound idiotically unjustifiable ? Here is the cruel truth, since most goverment rats were diagnozed with the "mirror disease" or, in other words, they were not capable of seeing their manhoods other than in the mirror reflection due to overhanging belly, the ability of projector to deliver relief of this painful experience could come very handy at the time ! Aren't you glad that you left message ?

Hello O Voyeuristic One. Now this is an interesting photo. One of the most ingenious devices to come from the endeavors of the spying community was the two=way mirror. One side allows you to see a reflection... the other side you can look in, undetected. Well this devious device, though the mechanism was totally different, operated on a similar principal. To the unsuspecting public, the projector, on one end, provided great light to track moving object high in the sky (including lost nudnicks from 1666). But the real power of the Perimeter Projector was the view governmental nudnicks received from the other side. One peek in and one was able to spy on enemy, being able to get a look through closed doors, no matter how thick and unpenetratable. During the Cold War, this is how big government officials got their jollies... They were looking for thermo nuclear secrets, but were sidetracked by the torrid action they saw behind locked bedroom doors. Oh what a perverted bunch. Oy. Michael.
