While joking about the headline, does make me recall my dad talking about the Jamaican workers when he was working at Guantanamo Bay that would wear skicaps and gloves when it got a little below 70 degrees.  I guess "cold" is relative.

That's nothing, I always seen migrant workers doing landscaping in the Florida summer, bundled up in large flannel shirts and scarves wrapped around their heads. It's 95 degrees and humid, and they're acting like its the arctic tundra.

The idea is that the fabric wicks the sweat away and cools you faster than you would without it.

I'd hoped that this machete wielder story would end with him running blindly into a mail box while fleeing, leading to his permanent identification as Dick Severance. Ah well.

I'm all for beating the fark out of robbers, but I'd think twice about someone with a machete.

/That's why I want one :)
//Not for robbing
///For infernal grape vines everywhere in the back yard
//Gotta be faster than clippers!

This story is the clearest and concisest way to illustrate why I shoot anything ninja-like on first sight. Nobody collects for their local Jaycees dressed like a ninja so don't be all shocked and dismayed when a ninja looking person goes all ninja on you cause it's what they do.

Some people would call me a racist for holding this belief but I'm not, it also equally applies to lizard people, stegosauruses, and any other group that is clearly up to no good shenanigans such as Jehovah's Witnesses or Scientologists.
