M.I.T. on the effectiveness of tinfoil hats

A 2005 study by graduate students at MIT determined that a tin foil hat could either amplify or attenuate radio frequencies depending on frequency.

And I just find this out in 2010? Damn it… :lol:

Wait… is this just to trick us into taking off our tinfoil hats because they actually DO work?  Definitely something to consider :P

So much for the standard “I lost all my guns in a tragic boating accident”

Check out the YouTube interview:

  1. That looks like a pic of a young Keith Olbermann.
    This answers a lot of questions about the show.

  2. I seriously doubt the study examined “tinfoil” hats. I suspect they used the ubiquitous “aluminum” foil hats.

    Shiny side out, now, or it won’t work as well. And don’t buy the inexpensive house brand of aluminum foil at the grocery store – everybody knows Reynolds is the best.

      Yea, many seem to use the terms aluminum foil and tin foil interchangeably, not realizing that they are 2 separate elements.

      Renyolds hey…? I’ve been using the cheap members mark stuff from Sam’s Club. Maybe my signals are getting though? :P
