I believe Ed the Coastie is a clown. And isn't he scary?

That's how you normally wear a bandana when riding, it covers the nose and mouth to keep dust and bugs out of your mouth, that's how cowboys do it and it's how bikers with open face helmets often wear.

Wearing a bandana as a kerchief is something commonly done too, but usually not when riding.

Though in places where they don't wear helmets they may be wearing a bandana as a kerchief and a bandana over their face, instead of a helmet with a visor.

To stay on theme, riding a bike and acting as if your face is a helmet could work as a disguise:

In the remote Denisov district of Kazakhstan, there is a clearly artificial pentagram perhaps 300m in diameter which remains are visible from aerial photography in Google Maps. The area has a number of Bronze Age ruins of settlements and cemetaries. Also, just to the east of the pentagram, across the water, you can see traces of an abandoned airstrip. The question is, of course, why? A remnant of the Hyborean Age? Stalin's answer to the Ahnenerbe, perhaps an experiment in summoning demonic kaiju as a weapon of war? The occult version of Area 51 -- or a Reptoid landing site?

If you don't trim the quote I can't tell what you are talking about. I assumed that you didn't object to me not wanting to be shot by a guy in a skull mask. I would have called the police on the Santa if he had behaved like the skull mask guy.

"[...]A necropsy found the carcass had no bite marks, but it did have puncture marks consistent with the type made by talons. The pronghorn, the scientists found, was likely killed when its cervical vertebrae were fractured."

Not sure if this one has been brought up, long running, centuries or decades long coal seam fires:
