The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Foiled again

Apparently I am farther behind the times than I had realized.

It's been an article of faith in these parts that lining one's hat with aluminum is the surest way to ward off the sort of mind-control beams that are routinely used against us by enemies both terrestrial and extraterrestrial. But time and technologies wait for no one, and, at least with regard to certain classes of extraterrestrials, a more effective screen is made with 3M's Velostat" electroconductive shielding material.

3M, needless to say, makes no such representations with regard to its product, but of course it can't.

I'll stick with Kevlar. I'm sure it will take care of *all* incoming unpleasantries.

Hah ha ha!

I yield to your, um, superior experience. :)

Yes. This new shield protects me completely from unwanted alien mind control. I have never felt better in my life.
