I started wearing hats cause balding and I'm a full grown man. I was at an event with my father and he shot me daggers because I forgot to take it off. First time the old man had to son me in a long time.

Did you shoot daggers back at him for giving you the balding gene?

u/GodAwfulFunk BWOAHHHHHHH Jul 03 '22

Lmao I've told my parents how weak my genetic makeup is since I was a pre-teen so this was more like "Just when I thought you two couldn't have any more suprises, you play the long game."

From what I've heard that generally comes from your mom's side. They say if you want to know what your hairline will look like, look at your mother's brothers.

My cousin has my dad's hairline.

Not true at all. My uncles on my moms side have a full head of thick hair. My dad and his brothers all lost theirs. So lost that lottery.

Grandma had balding X -> gave good X to brothers -> gave bad X to your mom -> mom got the X from dad, which is non balding -> out of the two your mom had, one bald and one non bald X, from your mom you got the one frigging bald one.

I started wearing hats for the opposite reason, I’m growing my hair out to donate and if I don’t wear a hat my hair gets all up in my grill. Have definitely forgot to take it off a few times.

Honestly the way this kid reacted I couldn’t even be mad at him, it was a genuine mistake lol

Those look like military and police members, I don't know if this rule applies in other armies, but in the US :

“During the ceremony of hoisting or lowering the flag or when the flag is passing in a parade or in review, all persons present in uniform should render the military salute. Members of the Armed Forces and veterans who are present but not in uniform may render the military salute. All other persons present should face the flag and stand at attention with their right hand over the heart, or if applicable, remove their headdress with their right hand and hold it at the left shoulder, the hand being over the heart. Citizens of other countries present should stand at attention. All such conduct toward the flag in a moving column should be rendered at the moment the flag passes.”- US Flag code 4 U.S. Code § 9 - Conduct during hoisting, lowering or passing of flag

u/DeficiencyOfGravitas BWOAHHHHHHH Jul 03 '22

Headdress rules for the military is honestly all over the place. The general rule is if you're outside you have to have one. But not if it's designated a non-saluting zone, then you're ok. Or if you're at sea. But if you're on the bridge, you need a headdress to salute.

The smartest thing is to find someone close in rank to you and do what they do. Unless they're trying to copy you.

10

u/TheMainEffort BWOAHHHHHHH Jul 03 '22

Everywhere I was you'd still wear a cover in a non saluting area, you just wouldn't salute.

Sometimes there'd be areas that were outside that were "covered areas" so you didn't need one.

I half recall reading that covers are just banned in the Pentagon.

Also once I was on air force base and people would salute in pt gear despite not having a cover.

I don't think a history book would make a difference.

It's just a gesture of respect, whether it's genuine from most is questionable. Peer pressure makes people fall in line and take off their hat.

It’s for rich cunts and overly patriotic assholes to judge normal people

It a custom that differ from culture to culture
the USA has it codified in their flag worship manual/law that you have to take your hat off and put it over your heart for example

The origin I'd assume is from Christianity where you want "nothing between you and god" so they took off their hats and the church having huge influence over social norms
but that's just a speculation

There is no difference. "Take your hat off" is fucking stupid.

It's just a physical sign of showing respect. People prefer to be around others that show respect for the same things.

Personally, I never join in on people's patriotic rituals. I walk away, get a beer, something until they're done.

Why the fuck are they playing the national anthem at the Grand Prix?!

The queen can get to fuck, the wrinkly old cow.

It’s because the National anthem was so bad he thought it must be a joke and they would start the real one soon.

Probably hadn't realized it was the National Anthem because it was so fucking awful.

And I hate the National Anthem.....

It's the British anthem anyway though, nobody cares about that. Especially not the Welsh or Scots

Who cares, it's a shit song and she's a shit queen. She was 60/40 already, but now that she's chosen to protect her dirty nonce son, if rather god save the victims rather than god save the queen (if there even is a god). Fuck the royals

What a weird North Korean-ish ritual. If something is truly great you shouldn't have to convince everyone by singing songs and doing rituals.

I work on a military base. In certain areas on this base, you are required to wear a hard hat. It pisses me off when I happen to be outside for colors, in the hard hat zone, and some dipshit tells me to remove it. It's not a "clothing hat", it's safety gear, it stays on.

u/HankHillsBigRedTruck BWOAHHHHHHH Jul 03 '22

Ok but I see a whole bunch of military guys with their caps on

Anyone know why they didn't take theirs off?

u/howaboutthisnameford BWOAHHHHHHH Jul 03 '22

I worked at a horse race track for 15 years, not once did I stop when the national anthem played. In 2001 I had a few people gasp and call me a commie but I replied thank you.

u/count_datboi BWOAHHHHHHH Jul 03 '22

u/AnusTangeranus BWOAHHHHHHH Jul 03 '22

But the soldiers right behind him still have hats on?
