Silly String Mine Detector

I read in Time magazine (27-Nov-2006, Dublin Edition) about silly string (you know the spray can stuff that squirts out like string). It is in demand as a trip wire detection device  in Iraq. Apparently the marines squirt it into a doorway and it hangs on tripwires without triggering the attached mine.
