Ever since the StackOverflow conspiracy was first discovered we know we have been living with all our imaginary Internet dollar points at risk.

The Winter Bash would be the perfect opportunity to put an end to that risk, but it turns out that there is no tinfoil hat that we can obtain to protect ourselves from the evil that spreads forth from Jeff Atchocolate.

Also, even though it is not Friday, it is Summer in the Southern hemisphere.

[Serious Answer]: When we were going to do custom hats for each site, we talked about tinfoil hats for MSO and Skeptics (as a joke!) but then realized: there just wasn't time. We'll consider them for next year, as hopefully we'll have time for per-site hats in the future.

[Unserious Answer]: If we gave you tinfoil hats, it would only confirm your suspicions. And we can't have that, now can we? Votem et circenses!


Hahah! I am now protected by the power of tinfoil!

I'd expect tin foil hats to be most fashionable on https://skeptics.stackexchange.com/
