5G Truthers Bought Faraday Cages to Protect Their Routers. They're Mad They Worked.

Let's say you hate 5G and genuinely believe it causes cancer or spreads COVID-19, despite there being no evidence to support those wild conspiracies. To shield 5G's myriad evils, then, you put your WiFi router in a metallic box that "blocks about 90 percent" of the signal. There! Now you're instantly protected from those treacherous waves of radiation!

Reminds me of the whole audio woo thing:

Quote
Explanations for why manufacturers, audiophiles and the "tweakers" perpetuate the myths of the subjective audio crowd are varied but one simple explanation is cognitive dissonance: having just spent thousands of dollars on something that does very little or nothing, it is easier to adjust one's thinking to "Wow! spending hundreds of dollars on little ceramic insulators that keep my speaker wires off the floor has opened up the sound stage and improved the distinction between the violin parts!", than it is to admit the fundamental realities that say "I can't believe how dumb I have been" and "my wife will kill me!". The brilliant thing about this is that it works in proportionality to how dumb the purchase was (and how expensive it was) so the more ridiculous the tweak, the more believing the purchaser will be.

You should also think about covering your bed in a Faraday cage. You spend about 1/3rd of your life there

As a side benefit, it also shields a little from harmful moon rays  8)

Just one smaller one, according to official sources.
