    Oh yeah? If the law requires you to remove your hat when you get an ID pic taken see how that works?

    Dude, you need to calm down. As I stated before....this is NOT "the law, this is the SXSW film festival. If they require propeller beanies, you're pretty much going to have to get yourself a propeller beanie to be a member of the club. Frankly, I wouldn't bother but, since you get to wear a hat, maybe this would be the club for you...

    The requirement by the states are another matter, but do also often allow for head coverings if required by a religion. They're not getting special treatment, their religious affiliation and requirements have been accommodated. As Jayhawker stated, if your religious affiliation required it, you too would be eligible for 'special' treatment.

    There was a guy that is a member of The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster that was allowed to get his driver's license photo with a colander on his head.

    Pastafarians. Thats why I suggested the Church of the Bullstuffarians for folks who wear cowboy hats.
    It's boring, and your lack of creativity knows no bounds.

    Nuns are allowed to wear their habits in their driver license photos. Some Christians are even allowed to get their state ID's without their photo on them at all. How is that fair? Freaking Amish!

    Damn that religious freedom in a supposedly free country!
