Just because you're paranoid

    Newer Older

    Inspired by a recent FlickrCentral thread on 9/11. Apparently regular tinfoil hats can actually increase the intensity of radio waves in certain wavelengths.

    So the true conspiracy theorist knows that a tinfoil balaclava is the way forward.

    This is the mobile version, with reduced protection. If you are sitting at home, you should earth it to create a Faraday Cage around your head. For ultimate protection you should put a fine wire gauze over the eyes and breathing holes. The Mk II will feature reinforced edging for these, and external spectacle mounts to reduce EM leak points.

      Next step - the tin foil suit. That will require more wine I think.

      Hmmm, that could be uncomfortable. And warm. But very sparkly and attractive...

      This photo has helped create some laughs where I work.
      I hope you don't mind, but I printed it and put it on my cubile wall with the caption "Chipotle Employee of the Month".
      If you don't know, Chipotle is a burrito fast food chain that is know for having HUGE foil-wrapped burritos.

      I aim to entertain. :o)

      I like to think I'm slightly healthier than the average burrito though :oD

      Rob: Have you ever held a Chipotle burrito? I don't think you weigh too much more ;)

      This is great, I hope my ex-boyfriend considers it as a possible test medication for his paranoid delusions that everyone in the world is out to get him. Implying they have time for that...

      Hi! I've used this image on a lecture page about tech-policy and privacy after 'Snowden'. It can be found here: Kerckhoffs Lecture. Thanks for sharing!
