Chinese paramilitary police, wearing their hats up side down, undergo a drill to prepare for the upcoming National People’s Congress (NPC) in Beijing on February 28, 2012.

China’s parliament, the National People’s Congress, is set to open its annual session on March 5. Exactly why their hats are upside down remains one of China's many mysteries, but to ensure uniform poise and balance is a strong possibility.
