I can't tell if he is using a single layer of foil on the hat or double? Would appreciate help from anyone with experience.
That's such a '70s style; so outdated. The latest is much more streamlined and also insulated for use in colder weather. Also, a paint job is standard on newer models with a variety of options; camouflage is preferred by the more serious survivalist/conspiracy theorist.
Try to use foil at least 0.9 mil thickness or greater, and fold twice for the best protection. Most heavy duty (grocery store) foils will be within this specification. Also, try to keep your cell phone isolated when not in use. A microwave oven works pretty well (while not on, of course). Hope this helps.
Mine is made from a hard hat wrapped in a disposable turkey roaster. Very chic.
…should have put down the wine before I watched that 😉
Could someone please explain where the tin foil hat thing comes from?
And then we have an alternate perspective:
Ambitious retail theft artists line the inside of canvas shopping bags with aluminum foil at home and take them "shopping". The aluminum foil blocks the RFID tags attached to merchandise from being detected by the sensors placed by all the exits. When they walk out with stolen merchandise the alarm doesn't sound. I don't know about aluminum foil's effect on brain control waves…
