The technology involved in making anything invisible is so infinitely
complex that nine hundred and ninety-nine billion, nine hundred and
ninety-nine million, nine hundred and ninety-nine thousand, nine hundred
and ninety-nine times out of a trillion it is much simpler and more
effective just to take the thing away and do without it.
