Shiny Side Out

Here's an abstract from the best M.I.T. science project ever:
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.

Here's a link to further info.

I was wondering what to do with my aluminum foil since I don't usually cook with it. The word "aluminum" was hard for me to pronounce when I was a little kid.

It's You Day over at my blog, by the way. It's all about you. :D

Proving once again that "just because you're not paranoid, that doesn't mean that someone isn't following you."

Kudos to David for Tara's salute! Richly deserved.
