Skip to comments.On the Effectiveness of Aluminium Foil Helmets: An Empirical Study
Posted on 11/20/2005 7:31:30 PM PST by SERKIT
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.

So the government WANTS us to wear tinfoil hats!!! They've really pulled one over on the fringe groups.
We coulda saved them a whole buncha money!
The helmets amplify frequency bands that coincide with those allocated to the US government between 1.2 Ghz and 1.4 Ghz. According to the FCC, These bands are supposedly reserved for ''radio location'' (ie, GPS), and other communications with satellites (see, for example, ). The 2.6 Ghz band coincides with mobile phone technology. Though not affiliated by government, these bands are at the hands of multinational corporations. It requires no stretch of the imagination to conclude that the current helmet craze is likely to have been propagated by the Government, possibly with the involvement of the FCC. We hope this report will encourage the paranoid community to develop improved helmet designs to avoid falling prey to these shortcomings.
Or maybe they don't really want us to wear them, and they're using MIT to put out a bogus study.
It's a conspiracy involving conspiracies.
The only way to prove or disprove this is to do more intensive studies. I'll go apply for some government grants today!
They weren't making them right.
The frame must be shaped in an inverted double-reverse pentagram, with a Star-of-David placed at the crest.
Use platinum, if you have it.
Don't let this information get out to DU. You might actually see them wearing the damned things.
Gettin' my Christmas decorations ready to decorate my foil hat now. Be Prepared.
Not the government! The alien overlords.
Wear your foil helmet! Or not.
Wait a second...
one of the researchers is named ALI RAHIMI.
It's obvious that Someone wants us to put our trust in aluminum foil.
Isn't ALCOA a member of the Council on Foreign Relations?
Ready when you are!
