We are all familiar with post Apocalyptic headgear. After a nuclear war from when the oil runs out and Anthropogenic Greenhouse Warmening make the earthquakes come and destroy civilization as we know it; all the most stylish neo-barbarians will have a colander on their head.
It is my theory that these metal pasta strainers are not, repeat not, helmets, to protect the wearer in battle.
My theory is they are actually to protect the wearer from the sun. Go out in Indiana this week. It will be like that in February, or I don't know my 80s movies. A colander is lightweight even in stainless steel, reflects the harsh sunlight, is mostly opaque to shade the head, but there are air holes for circulation. Regular boonie hats like I prefer will rot away in the first couple decades.
And the strongest collander still makes for poor protection against a cudgel of any kind. Much less a baseball bat studded with nails.
