    Chicks dig scars.
    Lobotomies produce scars…

    Especially the blonde ones. Anything that’s small (like their minds), they find it to be cute.

    Wasn’t there a motorcyclist who died when he crashed and hit his head during an anti-helmet rally?

    I don’t think those are motorcycle helmets. They look more like bicycle or skateboard helmets. And I have heard there are studies which claim that unlike motorcycle helmets, bike and skateboard helmets have done absolutely nothing to lower head injuries compared to non-wearers.

    I have personally fallen down really, really hard while at the skateparks, and been grateful to have been wearing helmets on every occasion. I’m accident prone and ungainly, but I’m not dead yet. People do get a kick out of the sound my helmet makes when I fall onto my head, though.

    My son found out bearings will freeze if you attempt skateboarding on a frozen pond. The board stopping and him not stopping and landing unhurt on the ice was a source of humor at family gatherings after that.
    Skateboard/no helmet + maple leaves on wet roadway = concussion.
    Was horrified when my son called me. It wasn’t him, but his best friend who was rendered unconscious. Not a source of humor at family gatherings.

    “Especially the blonde ones. Anything that’s small (like their minds), they find it to be cute.”

    Being a blonde (and not those bleached ones either) I resent that statement.

    A nice poster man for wearing helmets is actor and land on his head survivor (without a helmet) Gary Busey. I wonder how much of his present behavior is related to the head damage?

    Ask the Seau family if head trauma is something worthwhile to risk in the name misplacedd machoism.

    I was riding my bike, and taking a corner on the street in Tokyo at about 10-12 mph. Guy in a car stopped at the intersection decided to pull forward, turning into me. I had to take the turn wide, went into the gravelly shoulder, and the bike went down hard (lacerated my knee, and made a spiral fracture in a bone in my hand). Afterward, I looked at the helmet and there was a circular dent right at the temple. Helmet saved me from a possible concussion, torn skin along the side of my head, and maybe brain damage.

    What, you don’t dig his lobotomy scar?

    Maybe you need to look for statistics. Just because you have heard nothing doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.

    We have helmets laws. Motorcycles, cyclists. recommended for skateboarders (boarders can’t compete in tournies without wearing a helmet). Helmets being pushed for a lot of sports. Here’s an interesting fact……….. if your sports doesn’t have helmets or the helmets offered are as safe as a paper bag………. use a hockey helmet.

    Then there is Gary Busey who crashed his bike in the parking lot where he was picking it up from being worked on. Hit his head on the curb and had to be re-taught how to feed himself. He is still anti-helmet. I guess some people never learn. I say we should just let everyone do what he or she wants. Remove all the warning labels, seat belt and helmet regulations and have at it. That way we can clean out the gene pool of all the morons out there who just can’t be taught.
