Conspiracy; Government may have started the ‘tin foil helmet’ craze

The talking dog told me to do it!

Four industrious students from MIT, li Rahimi, Ben Recht, Jason Taylor, Noah Vawter set out to test the effectivness of the infamouse Tin Foil Hat.  You know the ones you wear on your head to prevent the Feds from eaves dropping on your private thoughts or subliminally influencing your decisions about only god knows what.  Perhaps they are slowly turning us all into mindless progressives armed with shovels and asphalt to pave a socialistic utopian road to hell with.  One that is about 3/4 done. Or perhaps its nothing at all.  Or is it?

What these students found out was actually pretty astounding, unless your paranoid.  And then you probably already guessed it.  Not only do these tin foil helmets not stop radio signals from reaching a persons cranium, at certain frequencies these signals are actually boosted.

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.

Go figure.


For all helmets, we noticed a 30 db amplification at 2.6 Ghz and a 20 db amplification at 1.2 Ghz, regardless of the position of the antenna on the cranium. In addition, all helmets exhibited a marked 20 db attenuation at around 1.5 Ghz, with no significant attenuation beyond 10 db anywhere else.


The helmets amplify frequency bands that coincide with those allocated to the US government between 1.2 Ghz and 1.4 Ghz. According to the FCC, These bands are supposedly reserved for ”radio location” (ie, GPS), and other communications with satellites (see, for example, [3]). The 2.6 Ghz band coincides with mobile phone technology. Though not affiliated by government, these bands are at the hands of multinational corporations.

It requires no stretch of the imagination to conclude that the current helmet craze is likely to have been propagated by the Government, possibly with the involvement of the FCC. We hope this report will encourage the paranoid community to develop improved helmet designs to avoid falling prey to these shortcomings. source:
