Reasons to wear helmets...

OK...So, I'm a little bored and thought I'd stir things up after the last episode. I'm sure the usual suspects will post the usual comments. That I'm certain...


LINK 1 IS VERY GRAPHIC WITH CURSE WORDS AND BLOOD....YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!!

Link 2 is absolutely amazing....

parents should show their kids link 1.

I have no sympathy for stupidity, but parents have to be a little to blame since kids are generally stupid.

I'm thinkin' a helmet isn't adequate protection against pure, self-inflicted stupidity. I hope his parents were treated to a replay of that video so that they could see for themselves what had earned the emergency room fees.

Pretty much my thoughts. Even if the kid in the first video had been wearing a helmet, intentionally slamming your face into a concrete wall will still knock your teeth out. If he had been wearing a helmet, maybe he would have broken his neck as well.

But I do know this thread is somewhat in jest. Someone posted part of the first video before. Stupid people are often entertaining. I point out the television show Max X.

I have to agree that a helmet would not have helped the bufoon
in the first video. My question was what in god's name was
he thinking?
I disagree that a helmet would have caused neck injury.
