He donned the lid as seen for the humor of it knowing that he would become mildly famous for the cost of the fun. 2. He wears it like that because he actually doesn't know any better. If that is the case, I am amazed that none of his budds would not interfere? Perhaps he has a hand issue and needs the buckle to be on that side and doesn't care which way the lid sits as long as he has the protection that he wants?
Maybe he will buy a face shield of some sort some day for this lid and be mildly amused for a long time?
If this was the dumbest thing that I have done in my life, I could live with that.

I have been lurking here for a good while too and had not seen it until you posted it. I'm glad I caught it before you nuked it.

What I really want to know is whether you were going so slow as to have the opportunity to count all 17 seats as it passed you?
