Don't worry, most of them have already weeded themselves out with bleach injections.

Yeah, I found one ad on Amazon for an umbrella to protect you from 5G...At least one review did comment on it only working if the 5G signal was coming downwards.

Then there were various bits of material which (a la Darat's post) could be made into all manner of things.

I agree that the most serious problem with tinfoil hats is that they are so rarely fashionable.
