But seriously does everyone else think aluminum blocking emotional allomancy is a tin foil hat joke?

Cause I do.

Per Brandon, he didn't set out to make that joke but once he realized that he'd unintentionally set up functioning tinfoil hats, he went with the joke.

I caught that reference. [in reference to tinfoil hats blocking emotional allomancy] 

Brandon Sanderson (paraphrased)

I built aluminum to do all sorts of funky things to all the powers, and I actually hadn’t made the connection of tinfoil hats until after I’d built it in, and I was writing it in Alloy of Law, years after I built it in, saying “Wait a minute! I just put tinfoil hats in the book!” (laughter) So I actually built that without thinking that there would be a joke to that.

Was it a deliberate move on your part to make it such that on Scadrial, people who wear aluminum foil hats actually are safe from mind control?

Brandon Sanderson

Yeah, yeah that was a big inside joke. *laughter* When I realized it would work, I had to put it in. *pause* I’m doing some fun things. The gun thing is another one I’m very fond of.

Why a waffle you ask well, that is simple.

Its.  A.  Waffle.

Not as good as a pancake. Especially if it is imaginary. I think that would be a more fair trade.

If there was a YouTube in the Cosmere, this would definitely be one of the videos.
