What happens on 4 October?

This is all rather vague, but this person has put it all together — 5G towers, chemtrails, smartphones, all the modern stuff, and a few myths — to predict our doom next week.

I’m not sure what’s supposed to happen, though. How are these devices supposed to suddenly kill us? A little more clarity would help.

She has fully embraced the power of the tinfoil hat, though. We’re supposed to wrap all our dangerous devices in aluminum foil and stash them in our cars, and park the cars 200 meters away (will they explode? I don’t know). Then wrap a room in multiple layers of aluminum foil and hide in there on 4-5 October, after which you can emerge into a world cleansed of technology, I guess, and…I don’t know.

How does she come to possess this secret and specific knowledge? The only possible way is if she is one of Them. If we survive next week, we’re going to have to travel the wasteland and hunt her down.

    Or maybe she’s just really good at astrology &/or psychic precognition.

  2. Bruce says

    Wait. Do we need real tin foil, made out of actual tin? Or is aluminum foil ok? What if we only have gold foil or titanium foil? Enquiring minds want to know! 🤪

  3. raven says

    She is asking everyone to surround themself with aluminum to protect from the signals.

    Will solid steel work?
    How about a Faraday cage, made out of steel wire?

    Can we just go underground into our survival bunkers?

    Inquiring minds don’t really care would like to know.

    PS You all know this isn’t going to happen on October 4th so yes, you do have to pay your electric bill and buy more dog and cat food.
    It would be amusing to see her excuse except Melinda will be the only one missing on that day.

    The fundie xian Rapture/Apocalypse groups have killed me dozens of times in my life. Strangely enough, every single time, the Afterlife ends up looking just like…my old life. I even get to bring the same old cats with me. What a miracle.

  4. says

    Is recycled aluminum (aluminium) foil ok? If it’s recycled, how do I know that the technovillains haven’t sabotaged the pure aluminum by doping it with just enough gallium arsenide to create an advanced-technology semiconductor that will take over my brain?

    Or, worse, yet, residue from takeaway imitation Mexican food, which might turn me into one of Them? That’s the real conspiracy: Sapping the purity of our aluminum foil’s essence. It’s worse than fluoridation, Mandrake.

  5. hemidactylus says

    Maybe these people could benefit from disconnecting from their technology for a while. It obviously has caused some serious damage to them.

  6. Dan Phelps says

    More than “tin foil,” this most unfortunate woman needs a dentist, a dictionary, and a calendar. Not to mention psychiatric treatment.

  7. Snarki, child of Loki says

    Doncha know? The Deep State/ObamaCare has banned actual TIN FOIL from grocery stores, you can only get it from special suppliers that report you to FEMA for black-helicopter removal teams.

    Personally, I prefer a layered approach: copper foil and lead foil, to protect from low-frequency EM all the way to gamma rays. But go ahead with the Aluminium foil, sheeple, and see what good it does you.

  8. numerobis says

    To be fair, 5g came out recently near me, and since then my cell phone reception has been utter shit. Luckily the next round of COVID vaccines starts in a couple weeks.

  9. robro says

    Obviously, this person is very wrong. You don’t need to wrap your devices in aluminum foil or line your house with it to protect you from the 5G signal. All you need to do is sit calmly, align your chakras, channel your energy then project a gold aura around yourself, your loved ones, your home…everything. That will protect you from the 5G signal and all your stuff will be cool.

  10. says

    Okay…I guess big honkin’ tinfoil umbrellas are a little more useful — and a lot more stylish — than tinfoil hats…at least they’ll reflect more sunlight back up into space and help with global warming…

  11. nomdeplume says

    Yesterday I watched a barking mad interview with Laura Loomer, speaking from her parallel universe. Now today this. Obviously something is driving the people of North America stark raving crazy.

  12. xohjoh2n says

    What happens on 4 October?

    Oh, that’s easy! All the trains go on strike and my ticket to see Midge Ure thus becomes worthless. Thanks Rishi!

  13. Rich Woods says

    With so many authorities on the subject recommending the extensive use of aluminium foil for its protective properties, I considered bypassing the cumbersome foil-wrapping stage and leaping straight to a long-lasting metal-skin bonding process. Given the high reactivity of aluminium with atmospheric oxygen, it appears to me that vacuum deposition may be a more efficient approach than high-tension electro-plating. Does anyone here have any experience of the effectiveness of this technique, or would I be better off directing my question to the experts on Xitter? Thanks in advance.

  14. wzrd1 says

    @ 10, so FEMA is finally removing the black helicopters? Cool! I really prefer lilac helicopters, as they match my Barney the lilac Godzilla clone.

    I’m willing to bet that this is a tributary to the river of idiocy over COVID-19 vaccine chips and 5G. You know, when the government takes over the country it’s in charge of and kills all of the taxpayers off to get more tax money and hand wave, shouting and spittle flying.
    Because a dead workforce really increases the productivity and GDP of a nation, hand wave.
    Would that it were true, my inbox would stop being flooded by one company’s entire recruiting workforce for the same far under scale pay position – at a pay rate that was starting pay for a newcomer to the field 30 years ago – with no benefits, use your own vehicle and fuel. Currently at 110 emails for the same position. Got another, for proper pay, remote work, but I’m rejecting it, as the same employee of a different recruiting firm decided it was wise to send it to me 5 times in two minutes.
    All now properly flagged as SPAM from those domains.

  15. seversky says

    Do not place your trust in crude aluminium. Remember ,,,

    “The Force is with me. I am one with the Force. The Force is with me. I am one with the Force”

    Or should that be “Farce”?

  16. xohjoh2n says


    Yup. Still gigging: next week is his 70th birthday one-off show but there have been several big tours over the last few years.

  17. says

    Interesting. A signal from “anything that’s smart” (that seems like telling), that simultaneously can destroy people and is also stopped by a thin layer of aluminum foil. Well, I hope after October 6th rolls around they can start a gofundme or something for her to see a dentist. Kinda feel bad for her in spite of it all.

  18. HidariMak says

    I wonder if the criminal types in her area knows where she lives, knows how to break into a car, and knows when she will have her valuable computer equipment wrapped in foil while she’s in her special foil room? It would make a heck of an interesting police report and insurance claim.

  19. wzrd1 says

    Ray Ceeya @ 31, you have integrated circuit chips slipped in? The bastards slipped inebriated circus chimps into mine.
    Apparently, the MIB do have a sense of humor.

  20. Ridana says

    #6 @rabbitbrush: That has me concerned too!

    Is “alumium” a Canadian variant of the aluminum/aluminium divide? At first I thought she was just slurring or her teeth were making it hard for her to say, but she clearly repeated it several times, so she obviously thinks that’s what the word is.

  21. bmatchick says

    You guys, it’s not aluminum. It’s alumium. Not sure where to get it (or what it is), but regular aluminum foil isn’t going to help you!

  22. nomaduk says

    Probably has nothing to do with anything, but 4 October is the anniversary of the launch of Sputnik (1957) and the beginning of the Space Age.

  23. wzrd1 says

    No, no, no! It’s aluminumunuminum! Old chemistry teacher used to hit us with that one, while contorting his exceptionally mobile face.
    He also did a routine over metric units, “How many wumps in a mugwump”. With some research, I learned that that was a bastardization of the similar sounding Algonquian word for chief or war chief. And a Republican party branch that was against corruption. Liked his corruption of it more.

  24. nomaduk says

    It’s just a fact that ‘aluminium’ trips off the tongue so much more pleasantly than does ’aluminum’, which just sounds as though it hit a wall there at the end.

  25. Snarki, child of Loki says

    @40: “Aluminium” accidentally had the last “i” left off by a clerk at Ellis Island, when arriving at the US.

    But went on to become the tippy-top of the Washington Monument. Truly an American success story!

    The Trump Monument should have a head made out of Americium, of course. MAGA-types should show their devotion by kissing it.

  26. KG says

    Presumably, if everyone takes her advice, the chief baddie will be reduced to hissing “Curses! Foiled again!!”

  27. KG says

    Seriously, I’m afraid the end of the world will have to be postponed: I’m moving house on 6th, and I just can’t allow that to be disrupted.

  28. KG says


    As in the following snatch of class-ridden British dialogue concerning saucepans:

    “Are you aluminiuming them, my man?”
    “No, I’m copper-bottoming ’em, ma’am.”

  29. AstroLad says

    @11 steve oberski: Worse. She’s allowed to vote.

    @25 & 26: Midge? I’d expect he’d be buzzing around ponds, annoying people.

  30. StonedRanger says

    Holy crap, where do I get my hands on some of this aloomium foil stuff? What is it protecting us from? Do I need to wrap my cats in aloomium foil to protect them?

  31. Big Boppa says

    This just in: Alumium = bad. Also, too, as well, cover yourself and all of your electrics with alumium foil to protect from all the chemtrail alumiums.

  32. wzrd1 says

    @ 42, that Trump monument would be the world’s first americium butt plug ever built.

    @ 51, I was trying to wrap my head around the aluminum chemtrails being blocked by aluminum foil, but I’m still trying to figure out what element was needed to attract the aluminum dust on paper.

    Frankly, I suspect her family didn’t bother with lead paint abatement when she was a child, preferring the chip chewing method of abatement.

  33. nomaduk says

    preferring the chip chewing method of abatement.

    It’s certainly one way of prepping the surface for repainting.

  34. wzrd1 says

    It’s certainly one way of prepping the surface for repainting.

    But, that requires a proper palette cleaning after a meal using elemental mercury.
    You know, quicksilver, which is natural, so is always good for you. Like strychnine, bitter cassava and hemlock.

  35. Rich Woods says

    @Snarki #42:

    The Trump Monument should have a head made out of Americium, of course. MAGA-types should show their devotion by kissing it.

    That should definitely appeal to all the alpha males.

  36. Rich Woods says

    @Autobot #53:

    I know I should be more compassionate than this, but I think I’d be unlikely to lose any sleep if any of these conspiracy nutters were to shield their phones and fall victim to an avoidable incident having missed a real alert of a life-threatening event in their area.

  37. birgerjohansson says

    @ 62
    I was thinking , on 4th oktober we get hit by a meteor like in the film “Evolution” with David Duchovny. And then we get an explosion of extra-terrestrial life.

  38. wzrd1 says

    birgerjohansson @ 57, I won’t need a third arm, as I’ll happily exercise my absolute right to arm bears.

    tmmniemi @ 60, dammitalltohellandgone! They caught onto my trick! Come on, Pinky, have to initiate Plan B…

    Reginald Selkirk @ 65, velostat, a deep well, tossed off the bridge and into the river… Whatever it takes for the infernal contraption from interrupting me while driving or preparing a meal (or during a meeting). I actually did throw a company Nextel phone into the river once. The office kept haranguing me for the daily numbers, despite my being on the Ben Franklin bridge in rush hour and only 10 minutes from the office.
    They replaced the phone the following morning, dammit.
    That shit irritated me so much, much of the time I turn the damned thing off or just leave it at my desk.

  39. jrkrideau says

    @ 34 Ridana
    Is “alumium” a Canadian variant of the aluminum/aluminium divide?

    No, she’s speaking standard Canadian English, maybe from Ontario, so that pronunciation is just bizarre. My first bet was a weird speech impediment but I did not hear anything else that hinted at it.

    Still these things happen, my uncle, admittedly a bit deaf, always spoke about a voltenwagon rather than a volkswagen.

  40. says

    I just returned to this post to view new comments and now, for reasons I don’t see) the image of the woman and her post are gone. I see examples of outlandish conspiracy theories on the internet and IRL. On remembering her image, I get the feeling that she is rather on the fringes of society in many ways. I dislike that whacko conspiracy theories are often publicized as fact. But, I also feel sorry for her.
    And, we do keep archival copies of our data and some irreplaceable hardware in very carefully constructed vault that serves as a faraday cage, too. Does that make us whacko preppera? We don’t think so. Now, if I doffed my hat to you and you saw a heavy lining of foil, that would be another matter.

  41. rrutis1 says

    I don’t get why she would record such and important message (to her, at least) from the car. I have seen a few of these lately where some (imagined) tragedy is coming and so they decide to go to the drive thru and make a tik tok video.

  42. wzrd1 says

    rrutis1 @ 69, indeed, one wonders how many disaster victims of actual, warned in advance disasters, such as hurricanes, became victims and due to the disaster, were unable to broadcast their video.
