Default Re: Strictly speaking for dummies

In the first place, I'm not a"dummy", in the second place if he was standing on the seat at the time it's difficult to say what his aspect ratio was on impact, It's most likely that a helmet would have prevented massive head trauma, however the angle of impact may have been such that his neck broke instead, or any other factor.

Believe me, I'm as pro helmet as they come. I owe my life to wearing a helmet on 3 occasions that I know of, and probably some I don't, unlike you I just don't jump to obvious conclusions.

Default Re: It's a Testosterone thing.

Players vs Watchers? I guess that depends on how define player and watcher. I can never make more than a small fraction of what my wife makes... therefore it makes no sense economicly for me to work. Every dime I make would just go to the government. I'll be damned if I'm gonna work for the Government while someone else raises my kids.



Let's face it... if I treated them like that, who would i have to blame when they turned out to be blathering idiots like you?

It's a shame if you think the gasoline and the pirahna are the dangerous parts of that equation.



But hey I just quit cold turkey 6 weeks ago some I'm just jealous.

Default Re: So let's not learn from the fact that...

Just because helmet usage is correlated with accident survival (I'm guessing it is, and of course everyone should wear proper gear) does not mean that it is a problem worthy of legislation and coercive enforcement. Maybe it is, but the only thing you have to say about helmet laws is that lives are saved. Well, they probably are. Now, the onus is on you to demonstrate with numbers, not anecdotes, how the absence of mandatory helmet laws for cyclists over the age of 18 is such a public burden that it requires abridgement of freedom. Not the other way around.



I would rather cops were spending their time keeping the roads free from distributed danger (reckless driving, etc) than protecting an adult from himself. Of course, 99% of speeding tickets will dissapear under my plan, so forget it.

This means taking personal responsibility for helping those in need. Not using the government to give yourself a feel good buzz. Fool.

Make sure you borrow the video camera from Sean before you do it.

I really chuckle at the sanctimonious lefties. I would bet a month's pay that my personal charitable contributions far outstrip those of any of the supposed "compassionate" types on this website. Not one of the democrats I know personally even comes close... except my wife, but then she's an old fashioned classical liberal, and not into the current rage of cheap govt mandated "compassion". Clinton pissed her off so much she voted for Bob Dole.



One thing I do know though is that I give more, much more, money each year than John Kerry did when he was Lt Governor of Massachewsitts. Isn't that typical? The loudest Pharisees in the political temple are the worst hypocrites.



I don't really care what people give... unless they are the types of people that accuse others of meanspiritedness. If they don't give generously then they are simply hypocrites and should be totally shunned.
