On the Clydes forum there's a discussion about wearing a helmet. It went off on some tangent about wearing a helmet while driving a car. Then I made this comment, and wished Tom Bombadil would read it and say something interesting about it:
"I just heard some crazy statistic about what happens if you're drinking a can of pop when your airbag deploys... they quoted some horrifying speed and mass combo which made it sound like it would go right through your skull.
I HATE hearing stuff like that, because for the next 6 months, I'll think about that every time I drink pop while driving, and there ain't a dang thing I can do about it. Because I'm not going to stop the car every time I get thirsty. I'll bet the statistics on stopping to drink would say that it's more dangerous than drinking the pop while moving."
