Yes, and the lot of you happily ignore that, judging from all the "A Helmet Saved My Life" stories, that describe accidents that most likely wouldn't have had a bad outcome regardless of whether the accidentee was donning a helmet or not.

Your condescending tone is exactly what the Bare Head Brigade is forever whining about, from people they meet on the street.
Perhaps, the difference is that I don't bother random people with my (admittedly somewhat weird) desire to argue about cycling helmets, I go (for example) to a specially quarantined thread normal people can avoid like the plague if they wish to do so. It's the difference between going to church, and bothering random bystanders on the street with your religious beliefs, really. So you can stop emulating butt-hurt now.
