Wackaloonery proven by science!

In a preliminary study that really doesn’t touch on all of the many aspects of wackaloonery. But in terms of popular culture, the tin foil hat holds a special place. 

Do you believe?

I want to believe!

MIT students decided to find out if tin foil hats actually work*. (Their parents are probably wondering why they didn’t pack them off to a nice state school instead.) Short answer: not so much. But don’t let that stop you from reading the original paper (this is still science). You can find references about the most popular styles of foil hats and best practices for making them. Turns out that if you’re wearing your tin foil hat to block the Man from screwing with your noggin, you might actually be helping them! The fed’s frequencies are amplified with the helmets. What can we do? Four words – full-blown Faraday suit. Or, and I’m just spitballing here, modify your Capt. Kirk chair to be a Faraday cage so the Man can’t get you while you are large and in charge.

*And you should check out the blogger’s picture. I don’t know which is funnier.
