Very sad, but true. I rode crossers on often wet trails for the past two years on slicks - this definitely involves falls! During this time I didn't wear a helmet and I didn't get as much as a cut on my face. By rydabent logic, this is proof that if you don't wear a helmet you'll never get a head injury, because your head will never touch the ground. (And in fact, helmets do make head contact more likely by expanding the effective size of the head.)
