I now never have to worry about those alien mind probes.
"With my wife wanting to pick out curtains for our apartment and me getting tired of being woken up by the sun every morning I figured "curtains" consisting of trash bags and aluminum foil would help move her along to making a proper selection. Also doubles as a way to discourage guests as she doesn't want anyone seeing this hack job."
Not to mention it protects your against aliens reading your minds! Bonus!
