I was watching a show about a special police task force in South Africa that was gallivanting around the countryside finding and destroying illegal arms caches. When they found a cache, they’d pile up all of the weapons and blow them up right there. The EOD specialist who was setting the explosive charges to destroy the weapons was wearing a shirt with a good tip. It said “I am a bomb technician. If you see me running, try to keep up.“

Many believe that foil hats are an essential tool to protect against government oppression via brain wave reading/manipulation.

A True Believer©, however, has issued a rebuttal calling the the study into question.
It’s official. Article here.
