Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials

First you will need to gather the following supplies: Aluminum foil, scissors, a measuring tape(optional) and tape i used scotch but any kind will do!

Step 2: Head Sizes

If you are using a measuring tape simply wrap it around your head and tighten it, then see how big your head is, mine was about 23". If you are not using a measuring tape simply take the foil and wrap it around your head then cut off the amount that provides a snug fit!

Step 3: Types of Hats

Now figure out what type of hat you want, do you want the antennae hat which can be used on a chilly night to pick up alien signals, or the kind of hat used for blocking out alien signals and government propaganda?

Step 4: Making the Hat

Now that you have selected which kind of hat you would like simply take the foil sheet you cut out earlier, the one with the snug fit (the snug fit is crucial), then wrap it around your head so that it forms to your heads basic shape, then tape the foil together. If you are making the antennae kind of hat you will need to leave enough foil sticking above the top of your head to make an antennae, to make the antennae simply take the foil sticking above the top of your head and crunch it into a spike. If you are making the deflecting type of hat do the same thing only when you have your spike cut it off and flatten the area where the spike was.

You forgot to tell us if the shiny side is up or down? I was once told that the shiny side blocks the mind penetrating green mist and the dull side attracts it. The person who told me that had to be restabilized on their meds. Still, good to know.

Thank you lstone666, I received these instructions just in time to thwart a government probe of my brain. If not for your helmet, they would have my plans for world domination. Please know that thanks to you my tyrannical rule of this planet is imminent. I will reserve a place of high rank for you and any others who help my cause in this glorious undertaking. I am a little concerned about your loyalty to dark forces ( pertaining to the 666 in your name) but all my subjects evil or not will be equally treated under my rule. So ljstone welcome to the new world order, Your Sincerely Lord NILETTON
I don't want to sound rude but isn't this a bit self explanatry?
Not everyone wears tinfoil hats, and we need instructions. Show pictures of yours, bet you have quite a few. This isn't any worse, than Zombie Survival Guides, or Free Money on the Internet...
