Jeez, it was an honest mistake. Take it easy on him. What I do is use
the metallic tape in a loop to make it two-sided. This way you can put
it under the foil hat thus making the tape inert, and leaving the mind
control blocking properties intact. I think it works just fine. My
friends tell me I'm paranoid but I don't trust them.
