mit aluminum foil helmetEarly this year a group of student researchers from MIT posted the results of a study on the effectiveness of aluminum helmets to protect against unwanted mind-reading or mind-control from nefarious elements (i.e., the gub'ment). Quoting from their abstract: "Among a fringe community of paranoids, aluminum helmets serve as the protective measure of choice against invasive radio signals. We investigate the efficacy of three aluminum helmet designs on a sample group of four individuals. Using a $250,000 network analyser, we find that although on average all helmets attenuate invasive radio frequencies in either directions (either emanating from an outside source, or emanating from the cranium of the subject), certain frequencies are in fact greatly amplified. These amplified frequencies coincide with radio bands reserved for government use according to the Federal Communication Commission (FCC). Statistical evidence suggests the use of helmets may in fact enhance the government's invasive abilities. We speculate that the government may in fact have started the helmet craze for this reason." Thankfully, the researchers offer improved design suggestions for protecting your brain against The Man. But according to self-described paranoid Lyle Zapato in a report published Nov. 11, "there are serious flaws in this study." Zapato suggests that the MIT study is "NWO propaganda designed to spread FUD against deflector beanie technology, and aluminum shielding in general, in order to disembeanie paranoids, leaving them open to mind control." Now the question is, should teachers be required to present both sides of the debate to schoolkids?

What's good for gub'ment is good for bidness, and those snazy matal helmets look like a sure winner, well worth the extravagent NSF and NASA funding.

The next phase of the research should be a test of their resistence to avian bird flu, for those of us who are scared of needles. I'll gladly wear the helmet if it keeps me from being attacked by ravaging chickens.

It's just too bad Jimmy Carter wasn't wearing one when he was being pursued by the "rabid swimming rabbit." (try saying that three times fast)

Gotta go back to my post now - watching for those gub'ment spies.

Where can I buy one of those aluminum helmets?

Sounds like a winner to me!!!

I finally fashioned mine. I need to put a network anlayzer on it to see if it works. I don't know if it has enough support to stop the network analyzer from crushing my head though. Certainly I feel my head is more in control of it's destiny. Thanks again MIT! nod
