    My wife loves bacon, and since she hates to cook I often make it for her. I haven't eaten it for years except for a little nibble I took about a year ago. It actually grossed me out.

    I agree. I am a strong proponent of leading by example. By my observation way more than half of adults riding with helmeted kids don't wear helmets themselves.
