The High Price of Looking Cool

The other day I was driving down one of the local roads and saw a guy riding a Harley. He was wearing jeans, a long-sleeved black shirt and a black stocking cap.

The strange part? It was like 95 and humid outside.

Now, if you are too stupid to wear a helmet while riding your motorcycle, what possible reason could you have for wearing a stocking cap in the middle of summer, other then to look 'cool'. And is looking cool really worth the discomfort of having something designed to keep the heat in on your head during the hottest stretch of the summer?

I suppose it could have been worse for the guy, he could have been wearing all leather and a motorcycle jacket. But the hat still seemed a bit excessive.
