    Do we have this problem here on the forum

    "A home in Sacramento's south Natomas neighborhood is surrounded by sheet metal, and neighbors are calling it an eyesore," reports KCRA-TV from California's capital:

    The D'Souza family lives in the home on Timberwood Court, and claims the aluminium pieces are necessary to protect them from unknown neighbors who have been bombarding them with radio waves and making them sick. . . .

    "Eleven years in Sacramento and few other years in Southern California and this is the first time I've ever seen (anything like this). The inside of the house is also covered with foil and the beds are covered with a foil-like material as well," Sacramento Code Enforcement spokesman Josh Pino said.

    no foil is too loud to sleep under. Don't believe me, try a emergency foil blanket.

    Thumbs up FortyFive

    I kinda like the new Reynolds Teflon coated Aluminum Foil. It's so doggone slippery that the radio waves can't stick to it at all. They bounce back with a passion. In addition the Teflon seems to help block the ultrasonic stuff that we're also being constantly bombarded with.

    I had the inside of my skull treated with an aluminum based Rhino lining, so I don't have to put up the sheet metal any more.

    That is just overkill. They should know a single layer of heavy duty Reynolds Wrap around the head will give the same protection.

    Why is this so unusual?

    When I was in for treatment, tin foil was the only thing that got me relief. I mean, I tried cardboard, hankerchieves, bedding, you name it--and I could still feel the Pentagon periodically monitoring my thoughts.

    Well, that period is over. But I have to tell you, a simple lining of tin foil not only provides some added warmth when riding, but none of those Joint Chiefs have the slightest idea of where I'm going.

    If you buy the value-pak, you have lining that will last for several months.

    Arizona used to have a Republican Governor, Evan Mecham, 1986-1987, who thought the Feds were microwaving his office. His staff used to wear tinfoil hats when he was out of the office. He was impeached after a year...

    Now y'all have got me worried, I've got a titatium plate in my jaw, do you suppose I'm an unknowing transmitter or repeater? ;)

    That aluminum deal is a waste of time!! Hey - only thing to use is ''Mu-Metal'' - much better screening than anything else.!!!

    Can't understand all this foil stuff - ''Mu-Metal hat'' is way to go - as well as fence, door liners, bed springs, cooking utensils - heck, even guns should be made outa Mu-Metal!!

    P95Carry,

    I did a google and found this.

    "Mill distributors of high temperature, corrosion resistant, shielding, electronic, and controlled expansion grades of nickel/cobalt alloy metals.

    Grades are stocked in sheet, plate, rectangular and round shapes. Our large and extensive inventory allows fast deliveries on hard to find metals for the aerospace, petrochemical and electronic industries.

    High Temp Metals, Inc. has in-house capability to shear, band saw, abrasive saw, and plasma cut materials from stock to guarantee shipment in one day."

    Guy, how can you be so right so many times in one day!

    edit: Does this come in common hat sizes? Not that I need it...

    Nope!! This requires some metal bashing - a ''make yer own'' deal! LOL.

    Foil is out - Mu-Metal is in
