Okay. My only thought was that the guy's a tinfoil dude with a microphone, and it's going to cost him. Whether he wins or loses.
Alex Jones is getting more publicity and fresh exposure, It just a cost of doing business in his world. Keep in mind, Alex is only political orientated entertainment.

Anybody ever seen how tin foil gets made?
When my wife was in the hospital after giving birth to our daughter, I caught a show that detailed the process.

Basically, they cast a huge monolithic billet of aluminum, and then pass it through a rolling press thousands of times. Back and forth, back and forth, constantly dousing it with water to keep it cool while it slowly compresses out into a thin sheet that can be sliced and rolled with ease. Really impressive process.

Does anyone else have any anecdotes concerning tin foil?
That is the topic of discussion according to the thread.

It can be used with a normal AA battery to start a fire.

Huh.

I'd heard of a handful of fools trying to do something similar in the service with brass, but since they all got in trouble for tarnished brass, I never paid any more attention to them.

The biggest drawback to aluminum is that it takes an enormous amount of electricity to manufacture new, so much that plants need to be located close to dams.

If you work hard enough, you can produce iron in your backyard. But you can't produce aluminum without major industrial support.
