Fashion: Hat: Protection
Tinfoil-lined hats   (+8, -2)  [vote for, against]
Because fedoras are more fetching

It's hard to get dates when attempting to protect your mind from scheming people with mind-control or mind-reading devices.

Specifically, wearing a tinfoil hat as a prophylactic against such conspiracies is not always the most popular fashion statement, regardless of efficacy. Seems that all the cuties are in favor of men who are susceptible to all sorts of dastardly rays.

So, a line of hats made specifically with four-ply tinfoil glued within the crown. Extra plies extend the lifespan of the hat; the outer shell makes the fedora, ballcap, or sombrero seem stylish while maintaining its ability to fulfull its real purpose.

Inspired by [Treon]'s "Tinfoil Hat Liners" (link)

Ah, but can you be sure what might not be hidden inside a mass-produced tinfoil-lined hat?
-- Ned_Ludd, Sep 13 2007

I suppose the truly paranoid could always add their own layer as well, but frankly, that seems redundant and a bit silly.

Could you make them Kat shaped?

BTW the inspiration should be credited to Po

[Po]'s annotation came on september 13th, my idea was posted the 12th.

My guess would be that she failed to read my idea...most people are wise enough to know by now to avoid my stuff.

are you in the same time zone though? :)
-- po, Sep 17 2007

I wasn't aware time zone had anything to do with it - I thought it was system-time oriented.

I'm in US-Central.

no idea, I got quite confused myself after writing that. something like: September 13 arrived here earlier...

you're smarter than the average baker! oh, berra...
-- po, Sep 17 2007

Ok, sure, but what happens when you take your hat off at dinner? They're watching, you know. They'll see you exposed and unprotected, that's when they'll get you. Better to use a tinfoil lined hairpiece. The beams never rest.

Surely cosmetic surgery has advanced to the point where you can get tinfoil implants for your scalp?
-- hippo, Sep 18 2007

Really, you just have to remember to shout "Go away! Leave me alone! Go away!" repeatedly, inside your head, when the tinfoil hat is off.
-- Harry Mudd, Sep 19 2007

A long protracted "Aaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgghhhh!" works similarly well.
-- zen_tom, Sep 19 2007

If this idea will make my sombrero seem stylish, I'm all in favour.
-- English Bob, Sep 19 2007

Your sombrero has, is and always will be stylish.

Can I get mine as a trefoil tinfoil?
-- qt75rx1, Mar 13 2008

Great for those living proximal to a cellphone repeater! Although I might choose a foil-lined hoodie over a hat, +
