The Rubber Band Man: T.I. and The Hat Tipping Mystery

explain this

Even being made into a meme, rapper Tip has faced controversy among stans and haters alike for his ability to slant and tip his hat to new heights, new angles, new degrees. Never sliding off his bald head, we're faced with even further questions, ruling out any type of hair resistance. How does it stay on his head, and how much force would it take to slide off of his head?

The first example:


A few things we can take away from this video:
A) His hat constantly stays tilted well beyond the 30 degree mark. This most certainly should let the hat fall off his head but it doesn't.
B) T.I. has some sort of supernatural ability to keep his hat on his head tilted in this fashion. I've been discussing this with a few people, and no one seems to know a solid answer.

If we observe top hat styles and fashions throughout history we can observe that almost none of them were tipped, and the ones that were are well below 20 degrees:


So let's apply some stuff to find out:

Let FNormal be the natural force going upwards towards Tip's hat. (a)
Let Fdownhill be the force working against his hat sliding off. (b)
Let Fweight be the weight of the hat he is wearing. (x)
Let Fapplied be the force applied by his hand to make the hat tilted in the first place. (y)

So what we're going to try and do is apply an elementary-level physics problem to this situation by calculating the amount of work needed to push his hat off his head (much like those terrible "how much work does it take to push the car up the hill" problems).

FNormal is unknown in this situation and irrelevant.
Fdownhill we can say is roughly half of gravity as it's nearly a 45 degree angle.
Fweight is going to be 16oz/1lb for the sake of this, even though hats are probably around 6-12oz, but we're giving him the benefit of the doubt by wearing a super heavy hat since it's never fallen off.
Fapplied is about 25mph or 36ft/s or 3m/s calculated by taking the average high five speed of a human.

Recall:

Now let's calculate force first:
0.5 x 3 = 1.5N = F

Now let's calculate the normal force, since we just calculated force (F):
0.5 x 3 x 30 x 1.5

0.5 being kg of the hat (round .45 up since we consider it to be 1lb) -- 3m/s regarding what we made Fapplied to be, and 30 for angle of incline with 1.5 being F: 0.02N

Now let's do an error region of 20 degrees, by calculating the same thing for an angle incline of 50, then subtracting: 1.11

So we have a result of 1.09N worth of force to knock his hat off, and that's with a generous 20% error region.

Observe: We can say that roughly using these calculations, 1.09N of force is needed to knock off Tip's hat when in the region of 30-50 degrees slant (fluctuation; tippage may vary).

Question: How is this possible? Excluding the following:
-he has glue on his head to keep the hat on
-he's a wizard
-he's in the Illuminati and has given up his soul for unparalleled hat balance

The answer we can conclude is that it's hard to say. We can observe him doing the same thing with beanies, bucket hats, other types of hats, and yet, physics can't explain it.





Conclusion: T.I. AKA Tip, defies physics by being able to balance his hat on his head at extreme angles of slant, not possible by other human beings. It can't be proven otherwise.
