    Old video (props to you if you watch TED talks, I love them). This will stem a stupid discussion. Thread should be closed now.

    Most people will read the title and still not understand the whole talk.

    I watched this video when it first came out. It struck me as being a poor argument for not wearing a bicycle helmet, but a pretty good argument for wearing a helmet in the car.

    Much like politics, sex and religion - helmets are a magnet for bull****.


    I'd recommend reporting this thread as I intend to do. While the video is interesting, the nonsensical ****storm that will follow is moot.

    Wish there was a study on "aggressive" urban riding an helmet use, specifically crashes 15-30mph involving vehicular contact and avoidance crashes. Bet the numbers would favor helmets.
