Scientists at Leuven university have discovered that aluminium foil helmets offer wearers protection from aliens. In a test carried out in Belgium over 2 years, not a single participant in the study was abducted by aliens. In the control group however, one individual was abducted.
"The scientific reasoning behind the foil helmet is that it acts as a Faraday cage, a conducting material that shields its interior from electromagnetic radiation. This makes the wearer invisible to alien radar," says Professor Vanderschrick of Leuven department of engineering. The participants in the study were required to wear the helmet for at least 6 hours a day, including at night when sleeping next to an open window. After two years there were no reports of alien abduction.
"After a while I got quite reckless," said Bart Schoen, a participant in the study. "Some weekends I'd go and stand on a hill with the foil helmet on, and chant do-si-la for a few hours at the sky. Even then nothing happened."
The next experiment will involve a more sophisticated model designed to prevent aliens from reading and controlling the thoughts of humans. "I'm a Star Trek fan," said Professor Vanderschrick. "It would be fulfilling a childhood dream to be able to exercise free will while everyone else is assimilated. I look forward eagerly to the day the aliens finally make it to earth."
Leuven University is currently looking at the commercial possibilities of a prototype. The Belgian tax authorities are currently helping police to trace the man who was abducted.

If you mean KH Leuven, I'm fairly certain that the one abductee was our student guide last year, and there aren't too many hills to stand on around there either.Posted 2 years ago #
