is; how do they manage to keep those ballcaps on their head? You know the type, the older styled ones with the mesh on the back and cute logos or slogans on them like "Retired, Old Fart, Im With Stupid,I'd Rather be Fishing" The wind could be blowing 200 miles an hour and the cap, that "looks' as if its barely on, doesnt move a cm.I think its all an illusion, tho.The cap barely sits on the crown of his head. If any of you olde phartes could answer this for me I would appreciate it. Thanks.

Caps are tied to the hair piece.

Didn't you know that 14 day old hair grease can be used as an adhesive?

Velcro Even though I'm an old fart, I still have hair, so I don't wear a hat [%|]

My dad used to favor Vitalis. The classic gold liquid stuff not the fancy-schmacy "styling" sprays of today. I always thought that was gross, taking a shower and then putting gobs of oil back on your hair. It did make for an unbreakable cap to skull seal.

You ever wonder how old phartes keep their underwear from falling to their ankles?

Its a very complex formula comprising of zero lift and substantial downforce, more wind will actually push the hat downward! the 'mesh' on the back of the hat that allows air to flow thru in side windsm also a seconday function is to promote low drag. [img]http://www.wyb.com/61-0017old_fart_cap.jpg[/img] heres a better view of the un-restrictive mesh, this feature has proven minimal resistance in multiple wind tunnel tests. [img]http://www.pjstrickshop.com/Custom%20Items/Mesh_Hat.jpg[/img] Also take note on the almost entirely flat brim or bill, high volumes of air can pass over this without creating lift- actually with the brim and foam frontal portion at a 75 degree incline provides a substantial amount of downforce, similar to F1 style racing aerodynamics.

Don't know how the others do it, but I just push out my pot belly, and the extra bump holds 'em up.

Same thing that keeps a yarmulke on.

Son, we just know how to wear a hat. That's all. When you are old and wise enough, you'll know too. Happy to help.

I'd like to know how you figure out which direction a yarmulke is supposed to go? :) At least old farts know which direction the sun visor is supposed to face..
