Basically, such whisks or foils prevent the wireless signal from scattering away.Wait, so should I give it a try and risk looking like more of an idiot than I already am, or should I keep pestering you folks with questions? I'm confused. :laugh:

Now, before acting silly in front of my family, I'd really appreciate it if any of you could confirm or deny that myth.This made me smile (in the good sense:)). Because when I read it made me remember an episode of Mythbusters (you know wich series is this?) where they busted that myth. So I don't think it works, they tried and the results didn't support the theory :p so it's Busted ahah :-D
