When you explore an idea, through repeated testing and validation, you are providing evidence that either supports or invalidates that idea. When you just spout out baseless and meaningless drivel like "Baseball hats are as effective at preventing head injury as bicycle helmets" as fact though, that's a disservice to people who are genuinely interested in personal safety and the efficacy of helmets.

... What I provided are not just one-off studies, but are based on years of research into this topic.
Perhaps your "research" is as faulty as your ability to accurately quote another poster whom you take to task on the subject of your "research".

I assume this may be related to having little or no apparent understanding of risk evaluation, risk management or the concept of significant reduction of risk vis--vis insignificant reduction of risk.

And we're done here. Any mention of helmets eventually turns into a Helmet Thread debate.
