This is very interesting
Among a fringe community of paranoids, aluminum helmets serve as the protective measure of choice against invasive radio signals. We investigate the efficacy of three aluminum helmet designs on a sample group of four individuals. Using a $250,000 network analyser, we find that although on average all helmets attenuate invasive radio frequencies in either directions (either emanating from an outside source, or emanating from the cranium of the subject), certain frequencies are in fact greatly amplified. These amplified frequencies coincide with radio bands reserved for government use according to the Federal Communication Commission (FCC). Statistical evidence suggests the use of helmets may in fact enhance the government's invasive abilities. We speculate that the government may in fact have started the helmet craze for this reason.

So it was the goverment all along. Brothers and sisters take your tin foil hats. It was all a lie.

I prefer the last study since it actually give us a demonstration of the blocking power of my shiny friend.

From your first link:
Statistical evidence suggests the use of helmets may in fact enhance the government's invasive abilities. We speculate that the government may in fact have started the helmet craze for this reason.

So it was the goverment all along. Brothers and sisters take your tin foil hats. It was all a lie.

Except that the last line of "We speculate that the government may in fact have started the helmet craze for this reason" is sarcasm.

I prefer the last study since it actually give us a demonstration of the blocking power of my shiny friend.

I would hardly call a YouTube video a "study" on this subject.
Furthermore, you can still read the results of the first link you posted, so there's no reason to "prefer" one over the other - except that the first link you posted was much more rigorous than that short YouTube video. It also has the advantage of being conducted by MIT inhabitants

I have no idea why I'm spending my time on a subject as absurd as this... -.-

Of course there is a reason. This one supports my position.

That's not a logical reason. That's an emotional one. The YouTube video that "supports" your position isn't as rigorous as the article you linked to, so there's no reasonable way you can "prefer" the YouTube video.

But then again, you never responded to that point.

One more thing:
I dont think Im well liked in here.

I will not pass judgment on whether you are well-liked here or not. However, I can say this: if you aren't "well-liked," it may very possibly be due to your own actions. The EvC members, in general, are a friendly group, so if you don't think you are well-liked here, do some introspection of your own.

Holy shit! We are seriously discussing this.

I was going to type confirmation bias as the reason but I changed my mind.

If this was meant as joking kind of discussion, then I fully concede that I fell for the trap and thought you were serious.

It was not a trap...

Perhaps I should had been more obvious.

You come across as a bit erratic.
