Not reading my thoughts...

I find I have the most trouble when the government does not read my thoughts.

Then I have to work out what they're doing, complain using various time consuming procedures and, worst of all, vote.

Hello Sir,

We're from the government. We're here to help.

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

Just think about it a little more... Why do you think so many people have "Smart Phones"? It's to suck you into an addictive craze of electronic gadgets and to better keep track of what you are doing and what you are saying and to whom you are saying it to.

See? And this is why I don't even have a cheepo cell-phone. Certainly not going for the iPhone or any other iGadget. Just wait until the iGovt comes for you.

Lacking access to such cheap supplies of tinfoil ;-) I will keep on sticking my head into the head (pun unintended) whenever I have any secret, or commercially sensitive, thoughts ... ;-))))))

Has anyone tried TCF (Telepathic Call Forwarding) to route "them" to the head of that idiot that steams past your slip, dragging a 4ft wake.

I stuck my head in an oven once, nothing happened, and then I realized it was an electric stove...

I'm confused. The foil is on the inside of the boat. To deter mind reading shouldn't it be on the outside. Perhaps It's we you need to be protected from DOJ , if that's the case the foil is right on.

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

I can guarantee you the government knows all about you already. They don't need to read your mind.

However, I would be more worried about EMF radiation from cell phone towers, and Wifi devices giving you cancer, or making you dizzy. Hence, your attempt at building a faraday cage makes some sense. But, I am unsure that foil is the proper medium. You might want to do some research on ex-static fabric, microwave shielding foils/plate. You can also take apart 100-200 microwave ovens and use the sheilds from the glass in your boat.

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

Re post #30

These guys have it all mixed up -- their plans to shield themselves from alien thought waves are futile in that it is essentially impossible to completely shield ones brain. The area exposed via the bottom of the skull is enough to admit all the waves necessary to effect control.

But, there is hope in an alternative plan: by making a parabolic brain wave reflector, and orienting it so that one's brain is at the focal point, the waves that are directed at a large number of targets are concentrated at a single point. Thus, in your brain the waves set up conflicting and destructive interference and are largely rendered impotent and the alien's ability to control you is eliminated. An ancillary side effect is a psychoactive reaction very similar to that of large doses of LSD.

Tests under laboratory conditions were highly successful: the number of subjects that exhibited alien thought control was zero, and the tests were judged to be totally favorable. Sadly, later tests run in uncontrolled environments showed that the parabolic reflector materials used also reflected infrared energy, and the subjects all died from brain boiling when exposed to sunshine. None the less, they remained free from thought control.

Current investigations are aimed at isolating a reflective medium that combines good thought wave reflectivity with infrared transparency. The most successful candidate so far is ectoplasm, but the only supplier yet identified is in China, and quality control issues have been a problem.

My personal means of protection is to simply not think at all whenever there are aliens about. This simplistic approach has so far kept me free of their control, and has freed up a lot of time for perusing the CF.

Cheers,

Jim

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

I had a gay friend once ask me, regarding my modest homophobia, what in the h*ll made me think that any self-respecting f*g would have any interest in me?
So, I ask all aluhatters, what in the h*ll makes you think that any government has any interest in you beyond your taxes? Funny, funny thread!
But, if I were a power hungry moderator like I've seen on some other forums, I WOULD SHUT THIS THREAD DOWN NOW!
