'Cause to me it seems Europe actually has a lot more freedom than the states in all aspects of life.
I have the emphasize that freedom can be considered by either in the terms of Hobbes's "State of Nature" (European approach) or the extremely naive "Noble Savage" by Rousseau.
Basically can freedom better be obtained in a world of anarchy or order?
Gosh, I got to get the rights for P&R
This thread is not about spelling. It is about the safety of wearing a helmet.
I often thought that car manufactures got the air bag thing wrong anyways, the bags should be on the outside of the car and not on the inside thus protecting the exterior of the car more from impact damage possibility saving millions a year on body damage. Make the exterior bag react by sensors just before impact and make it really strong so the effect be be similar to a superball...the cars would just bounce off each other. Boing.

None of the last three posts have any demonstration of the number of freedoms Americans do or do not have. But this aught to be continued to the P&R section as they have nothing to to with helmets at all.
