There's nothing more fashionable than a (red) beard, a fedora and a cruiser-bike (I know, I'm so vain today). Only problem: fedoras offer no protection. The engineering problem thus: create a fedora that works as well as a helmet.

(?) Fedora(ish) Hard Hat http://www.thefedor...wthread.php?t=21687
One man's version. (For the record, hard hats like these without the customized band are available from Vulcan and come in black, white, off-white, and natural.) [jurist, Jul 30 2008]

       I think this is how Oddjob started. But then he had a crotch injury after a long road race, gained 120 lbs, got the job with Goldfinger, and discovered that a sharpened brim added value to his helmet.

       Why give it such an awkward name, though? What's the significance of the apparently superfluous underscore character in the middle of it?

       Apparently you can't crash with Fedora. That's what the Linux guys tell me...
