Here’s the haps:
On a blog that I follow called NOTES FROM THE CACTUS PATCH, written by Phil Strawn, a teller of tales (Occasionally tall tales) and spinner of yarns from the great state of Texas, there was a post a while back that he called, “The Truth Is Out There; We Are Not Alone. See… I Told You So!” He talked about going through Roswell, New Mexico, and in the comments we briefly discussed tinfoil hats and I proposed the idea of a tinfoil cowboy hat, which he said he’d like to see. This post is my reply to that comment.
I used to question the need for such a device as a tinfoil hat but nowadays I am not so sure. So many supposed conspiracy theories have been proven true over time that nothing would surprise me anymore. Heinous, evil things done by the U.S. government in the name of “Science” or “National Security” Which sent me on that rant the other day.
The next time you hear anyone in the government saying that we need to have the government monitor the media and determine what is dis- and misinformation, no matter if they are Left, Right, or Center, don’t let them do it! As much as people cry about what is commonly referred to as the “separation of church and state,” of equal, if not greater, importance should be the “Separation of news media and the Government.”
Now, one of the reasons I have heard why people wear tinfoil hats in the first place is because of mind control beams. These mind control beams are often attributed to our own government or to space aliens. Or to technology “found” in the Roswell Incident. Perhaps the CIA, in an effort to distract from their mind-control-through-LSD failure developed it. A mad scientist like Regis Frankenstein or Heinrich Von Googleheimer, perhaps? But, how could they work?
They would work by electromagnetic force waves. Amplitude-modulated or frequency-modulated radio and television waves, microwaves, alternating current, x-rays, direct current, static electricity, and lightning to name only a few, all bombard our brains, which also operate by electromagnetic forces, every day. Oh, but what to do‽ What to do‽
Enter Michael Faraday (Sept 22, 1791 – Aug 25, 1867) who is called the Father of Electricity. Among the many things he discovered, he invented the Faraday Cage. Oversimplifying it, a Faraday cage absorbs an electromagnetic charge from the outside and anything inside it is safe. This is why you should remain in your vehicle if a power line falls on it or there is a lot of lightning. It isn’t your rubber tires that protect you but your car, being a Faraday Cage. While I was looking this up, because some of this stuff I knew and a bunch of stuff I didn’t know, I came across a pretty good video showing what to do if your car has a power line landing on it. I found it on an interesting website of a power Co-op in Missouri and it’s well worth 6 minutes of your time.
Yes, the special suits that linemen wear are a form of Faraday Cage as well. The mesh in the front of your microwave is one. You can purchase a Faraday bag for your laptop to protect your information from RFID and EMI attacks.
So, the Faraday Cage effect is very important. Now, the pros and cons of using one to protect your brain.
Proponents of the wearing of tinfoil hats say that you are protecting yourself from mind control beams and other harmful radiation. You know those people who wear stocking caps (sometimes called “beanies”) on their heads even in the middle of the hottest days of summer? They are hiding their tinfoil hat under it. And really, that is backward because there should be some space or insulation between your head and the foil which is why mine has a better chance of working.
I don’t agree that these hats work, though, based on anecdotal evidence and a bit of logic and here’s why. Growing up in the Sixties we had a small black and white portable TV with rabbit ear antennas. If there was an important game on or a cop show my dad wanted to see and the channel wouldn’t come in very well, he would take some aluminum foil and ball it up on the ends of the antennas and it improved the reception. Sometimes he would make foil strips and add them on. In other words, it strengthened and attracted the signal. Also, you would have to know the exact frequency and intensity of power of the wave you were trying to cancel and if you knew that, you could find the source and stop it.
But then I got to thinking, what if there was something to it? What if you could stop all the waves from bombarding your brain for just a few minutes? Would it relax you and could you think more clearly? A tinfoil cowboy hat, if made from good materials might be the answer.
I started with one of my nicer hats, a genuine Stetson that was given to me by a brother-in-law.
I started out kind of frowny-faced and aggravated, like this:
So I quickly went to work, beginning with the crown.
Then finishing up the rest:
But, would it work when I put it on? Well, see for yourself:
Happy as a Colorado Hippie! Well, okay, I haven’t done that stuff in over 35 years. But I did feel better! But was it due to blocking out the electrostatic noise and electron beam waves or the fact that I had completed something I set out to do?
Beware the Aluminati!
