Re: Am I now safe from "The Govt" reading my thoughts?

So without this protection - I gotta stick my head in the oven during lightning storms?

Yep, make sure the gas is on first though.

These amplified frequencies coincide with radio bands reserved for government use according to the Federal Communication Commission (FCC). Statistical evidence suggests the use of helmets may in fact enhance the government's invasive abilities. We speculate that the government may in fact have started the helmet craze for this reason.

You need TIN, as in "tin foil hat". Not aluminium, but genuine tin. Which, you may notice, is rather hard to find in the civilian consumer market. (Purely coincidental.)
Tin has been reclassified as a strategic metal by the government. That is the reason tin cans are no longer lined with it. The government discovered people were using the one gallon cans as hats to evade their mind probes and moved quickly to reclassify tin.

I went to sleep last night and I don't remember anything after that time until I woke many hours later! Creepy, right?

Which is the real reason the TBT antifouls were banned. I always used the leftover TBT bottom paint to redo - touch-up - my beanie.

BTW, good luck DOJ.

La Paz is too hot to do anything, but there one can be free of all electronic intrusion, except, of course, for satellites. For that I'd have to go to the jungle and let the greenery absorb all the rays.

But I left there in April for Hawaii and am now back in LA. collecting boat parts and am subject to massive electronic bombardment. Especially as I sit in front of satellite TV, I feel my body being probed and scanned. I can barely summon the will and strength to push the OFF button on the remote. My eyes are getting hollow and I worry about it. I find myself obsessed with visions of a juicy rump roast with onions and garlic, with fava beans and a nice chianti. This snap I took of myself in the mirror doesn't look like me anymore.



Even my cat has zoned out.



I need to finish up here in the city and get my cat, and don real tin hats and get back to the serene Sea of Cortez before it too late, I think.

Re: Am I Now Safe from the 'Government' Reading My Thoughts ?

I have this theory that they try to beam thoughts into your food supply. Then when you eat it you get it no matter what kind of hat you have.

Soo.... .... we had to protect the food supply too!! :

ciao!
Nick.
