    gosh, between @Primordial blowing himself up, and @LAKE CLARK burning his house down I think we need a paranoia sub forum, instead of a preparedness one lol

    Actually that could be a fun idea - a tinfoil hat contest. Most fun tinfoil hat wins a roll of tinfoil!

    GAW. If you've read through all the dumb posts in this thread so far, you deserve a chance to win something.

    Make a tinfoil hat, post a photo of you wearing it and also post a photo of it holding water.

    The prize will be a small survival kit I will send out to the winner. GO!

    That's funny right there! Then I thought of the "zombie horde" covered in glitter...please, someone find a gif!

    Dude, I love you like a brother I never wanted but, I'm not taking a 4 hour round trip ride to go buy some tinfoil...probably.

    Actually it’s for our Tin Foil Hat Society theme for our Trivia Night Team theme.
    I think it actually works as I already knew of your post before you posted it!
    Don’t know if it’ll hold water but it did fine with Jack on the rocks!

    Ive caused several fires and a few small explosions so really its only a matter of time . Now im wondering if i pour lighter fluid down the barrel of my 760 and shoot it at a candle ...... hmm could be sooner than i think . The best quote on being blown up " You may have a slight ringing in your ears , luckily you will be no where near them "

    I had my hat on, but I could still hear the dog in my head, so I had to block his transmissions as well. :11::35:

    I, sadly, have no foil this evening and fear I may not see the morning light if I continue to read this thread.
    Therefore, I am resigning myself to my bed before there is irreparable damage to what is left of my fragile little mind...

    I tried making a spartan helmet out of foil but it fell apart on my head. The men in black must have caught wind of my plan and removed the design from my brain before I had a chance to finish building the device.

    If I were to find myself as a "Lone Wolf" protecting my homestead from souped up, weaponized, lifted, rust colored patina Honda Civic driving spike haired, pierced, tattooed, chain and leather wearing cannibal marauders armed with barbwire baseball bats, circular sawblade battle axes, Cold Steel products and logging chain lassoes?
    Dang right I would blow myself up! But only if I could take out at least 51% of their numbers. I can't let my dry beans, bacon grease, macaroni, Chef Boyardee and 50lb bags of worm infested white rice fall into the wrong hands thus jeopardizing the fate of all humanity.
    Someone has to get blowed up to protect the rest of you sheep! You're Welcome!
    EDIT;
    I apologize for being so harsh. I just realized my tinfoil is made from aluminum.

    Blow up the thread so the wrong types can’t take it over and use it for nefarious purposes.
