Well, the reason this thread is in this forum and not the ATS Live forum is so stars couldn't influence any decisions when we get to the judging. Also, I totally agree tsawyer, those are the type of people that this type of contest attracts, as you have all shown with your amazing entries. There are plenty more of those types on the boards though and I really hope that they will join us and submit an entry.
Thanks for the entries btw, in case I haven't said so yet publicly.
I like to laugh, sometimes I don't do it enough, so for me this was a great experience.
I'm already thinking of ideas for next year.

Coming out with the Ed's Wall idea was also challenging. No tinfoil there but the whole idea was to highlight Skeptic Overlord (The owner of ATS - without whom none of this would exist) somehow but with subtlety... And the hero dudes idea was born.

OK ... were on. Tomorrow I am going to shinny over to my sister in laws house while they're gone. I only need one or two pics of a window with foil on it so I won't be inside for very long. I got my moms spare key and I already know the alarm code from times I have watched their house while they are away. They have a cute dog and a big yard that needs a lot of watering.
Thats how I found out about the foil on the windows to "block EMF". It just showed up one day and I am still reeling. So maybe if I bring it here and keep that a secret, we can all have a good laugh about it. She has literally turned her entire house into one_ giant_ tin_ foil_ hat. I don't pretend to understand it, just thought about it a lot after I found this thread and laughed my butt off. You guys are crazy/funny and clever.
But you are still only funning. Tomorrow, I will bring the real thing.

TIN FOIL HAT MURDER MYSTERY
(AP) Officials were baffled today when they were called to investigate reports of a body lying on a residential driveway. Upon arrival police discovered a deceased middle aged man who was found lying with his head propped against a garage door, completely wrapped in foil. Foul play was suspected but the coroner refused to answer questions stating that until further investigation no statement could be issued as to the cause of death. It appears there is a link to the home where the body was discovered. The homes windows were all covered in tin foil, but repeated efforts to contact the owners were in vain. Special investigators were on scene to identify the body and collect evidence. One was overheard to whisper, "Ritual Tin Hat Murders again."

Hey fellow tinfoil asylum members, how you all doin... I wish you and yours the best of everything. Thank you for all the comments and replies. I been basking in their warmth and humor for a whole day. Sorry I did not get back to you sooner, but I was dead and had to fight my way out of the morgue (they didn't believe me at first). Then I had inform my "next of tin" that despite what they have heard, I am still crazy.
Made some laugh up on here, huh? That is the best part for me. It didn't start out that way. I am not sure how I first stumbled upon this thread. I was amused and came with, awww is it over? Sorry I missed it and all, and you guys were like, oh noooo its still on and bring an entry. You called my bluff. This is ATS after all, you can't just say some stuff without backing it up. I realized that I couldn't compete with all the unique and artistic entries in any kind of "meaningfoil" way without adding some element of story. I am glad you were amused.
I would like to thank everyone here for accepting my interpretation of the contest and playing along just for fun with it. Whateva69, GAOTU789, SonoftheSun, Wildtimes, tsawyer2, HomerinNC, and especially WallE. Turd for taking the time to carry on in the finest paranoid delusional tradition.
See you on the boards,
PS: Oh and big thanks to ATS, without which none of this madness would ever have been possible.
I mean...anyone sealing their windows with tinfoil to avoid EMFs HAS to be a member of ATS !!!
Never saw this one coming ! Kudos to you !!
