stupid but brilliant?

This is so stupid I thought the only place to bring it up was in Foo. So here goes.

There has been much talk of helmets and blah blah.... try this.

If you want your own personal helmet you can make one simply,

First, Put a dew rag or some such thing on your head.
Second. Take some spray foam insulation and spray it in a box/old computer chassis.
Third. Put same box/computer chassis on your head then wait for the foam to harden
Now it gets fun. You can take the box/computer chassis off of the foam and carve the foam to any shape you want, you can even make little places to store your mp3/ipod with earphones.
By the way, don't forget to leave room for straps and such.
You could even mount your own mirror however you want to.

I told you it was brilliant.
Steven

Okay, I tried this, but I think I put too much foam in the box. It got really tight, kinda hurt when taking it off. Surprisingly, it did not take any carving. Here is what I came up with.

Stacy, you must not make me laugh, I have a pulled muscle in my back, no fair.
Imagine the shapes you can come up with.
And Siu, what makes you think I don't have it in production? Hmmm.
Jsharr, that brain is just ugly, no offense but man o man. :#)
