Hats are cool if you can find one that actually fits.

I apparently have an immense head, because almost every "one size fits all" hats that I have ever tried on needed to add an extra bit to that phrase: "*(Except for NP)"
If you or anyone else is really interested in learning the ways of hats and how to properly block one, pm me. I have never bought a hat that fits right because everyone's head is shaped differently, but the forms used to make them are all the same.

LOL at Monterey Jack! I was waiting for someone to use that.

I stopped at the local c-store on the way home tonight for some liquid refreshment and fake "demanded" that the clerk card me so I could show her my state ID. Her response? OMG slave, I've seen bad ID pics before, but this is the worst ever!

So much for using that ID again.

It's not a question of shape--merely of size. I seem to have an inhumanly-large cranium. I have found a total of three different hats that fit me so far, in a couple of decades of looking. One was a straw hat made on a "humongous" form just in case someone like me wandered by the booth; one was an actual Size 8+ hat, and one is the big floppy "Sunday Afternoons" hat that I wear when going outside for any amount of time.

Is this a stealth brag about having a brain so big a normal head couldn't hold it?

Straw is fairly easy to stretch to fit, so I could help with that. Well made fabric hats can only be stretched about half a size larger without damage. I am so sorry that I can't share my hat love with you.

I've got a brain the size of a planet, but if I tell them that all the diodes down my left side are hurting, does anyone listen?

This would seem to warrant springing for some custom work. Aside from Google, you might ask around local clothing- or shoe- repair places (such as those often found with laundry services), or any SCA-type groups you might know about.

I just accept that I'm not much of a "hat person". My wife stumbled upon one hat that actually did fit me and offered good sun protection, so I promptly stole it from her. She made me order a couple more of them...

https://www.sundayafternoons.com/p/adventure-hat/

I wear one like that most of the time I am out in daylight for more than a few minutes.

I definitely am not as smart as Marvin the Paranoid Android, nor do I claim that my noggin makes me the smartest person in any given room. I think it's mostly just a thicker skull; a notion firmly supported by my wife who occasionally tries to get ideas through it....

The answer is obvious: UBH!



Use Bigger Hammer! Though that could end like the time our gang of 12-13 year olds were digging an underground hut with picks. I discovered a *large* buried rock and told my best friend and good buddy (our muscle kid) it was too tough and could he loosen it up?

Mighty Swing! Klang! ... and he's stretched out in line with the pick handle, vibrating like a gong.

In all fairness I can't tell ages either. Unless you have grey hair or wrinkles, I'm probably going to ID you because 99.9% of the time they drove here and if they drove they have to by law have their drivers license on them. If you're over, take it as a damn compliment. We get a lot of underage checks here because of the amount of money we're talking about (and because it's a legally binding contract) we have to insure the customer is legally allowed to make the purchase (19+, appears sober and mentally sound) and that they are who they say they are. I personally don't want it on my head because someone made an $80,000 purchase with your information. Even if you're an old old fart, we still have to confirm identity with at least one piece of govt issue ID that has a picture and DOB. I don't get why ppl get all pissy about it. Like hello! Trying to make sure someone isn't about to commit fraud here with *your* information. Not to mention I would be criminally liable if I failed to ask for ID and you weren't who you claimed to be. If it's fake and I get fooled well at least I have covered my ass and can avoid any criminal charges. I hear jail's unpleasant.
