Scarves

I don't get it. There are a bunch of people in my building who now wear scarves indoors, often each and every day. Old and young, male and female.

Seems like it would be extraordinarily uncomfortable.

I think they're nice. It's a nice way to make your neck feel warm. And they're more socially acceptable than a hat.

what does making your neck feel warm have to do with wearing a hat? Or are these statements just akwardly arranged to suggest relation?

Well, to me, the idea of my neck feeling warm throughout the day seems very uncomfortable, not to mention the potential scratchyness of a scarf, depending on the material.

Also, a LOT more people wear hats than scarves. Maybe more socially acceptable at Saks Fifth Avenue...

The akward arrangement wasn't meant to suggest anything. The akward arrangement was simply a hastily and somewhat poorly composed comment. Allow me to clarifiy:

When I'm cold, and I want to be warm, a really good way to heat up too fast is by having a hat on my head. A nice way to warm up just right is to wear a scarf. I suppose a sweater could suffice, but, that's out of the scope of this discussion.

And as far as the hat vs. scarf debate...? Wearing a hat outdoors, or on a weekend is one thing. But what about if you're just a little extra chilly at work? Or at a restaurant, where wearing a hat might be considered inappropriate? Or in church?

Another advantage is that you can take a scarf off without messing up your hair-- because achieving warmth and being fashionable are sometimes exclusive endeavors. Just look at Russia.

It's just a hip new thing to do to be hip and new.

Hipsters rule!

Travis, I think the issue here is that most people are constantly freezing cold. People live their lives in constant misery because their bodies can't sustain themselves comfortably in normal conditions.

Yeah, I know... in fact, I go to extreme lengths to preserve my formidable body size, solely for the purpose of maintaining its survival characteristics.

Sometimes I do forget, though, that some people like being warm. It's weird, but whatever.
