The Scare-o-nator™ must have gone into some annual hybernative (that's a new word) state, because it has not been seen for quite some time.
I still think we need to incorporate a laser scope and possibly an Artificial Noise Source (ANS) in a new Scare-o-nator™ model. Perhaps the Scare-o-nator™ 2000, or the Scare-o-nator™ 2006. Or we could be like car companies and release the Scare-o-nator™ 2007. The new model would also feature Stealth Core Bindings (duct tape instead of packaging tape) which would improve sneaking capabilities.
