I’m gonna throw my hat into the “Earth is Space Australia” ring, and bring up the topic of hats. Not protective helmets or for identification, just normal hats. Not only does it look odd, hats come in dozens of types, between ball caps to stetsons to top hats. And some people ALWAYS wear one. So, why wouldn’t we take them to space?
Hazzro: Human John, what is that on your head?
John: What, my hat?
Hazzro: A “hat”? Was the helmet we provided not satisfactory? Were you injured?
Hazzro was concerned, if the humans weren’t protecting their organs, the next pirate attack would be their last. The humans were too good for walking around injured and claiming everything is fine, even when they weren’t.
John: No, it’s fine. I’m just off duty right now. I thought I would just relax with my snap-back. Everything is okay, Haz.
Hazzro: Snap… Back?! Is that dangerous?!
John shook his head and tried to contain his laughter at Hazzro’s confusion. He then attempted to explain the different types of hats to the alien crew mate.
Hazzro: And humans wear hats because?
John: Depends, but it blocks light from our eyes and keeps our hair out of our sight.
Hazzro: Is the light bothering your eyes? Is there an issue with your fur?
John: Nah, I’m fine. I just like wearing hats. It’s comfortable to me.
Hazzro: Alright, but one more question? Why does your “snap-back” have the letters “RWBY” on it?
John: That requires… a bit more explanation…
