I guess if you are dumb enough to wear a beanie, you deserve to have what's left of your jaw wired shut

Not sure how a beanie is supposed to affect my jaw ... perhaps you would like to explain?

Would have been a good time to bring up the Snell/Dot issue again. How much more brain tissue is scrambled by high G loading, etc.



The brain-damaged guy looks a lot like Ben. How long did it take to track him down? Best of luck to all. Hell, if Larry Grodsky can be claimed by misfortune, you'd better be real careful out there.

After you pull a Roethlisberger, a beanie is no good to you

Default Re: Helmet laws save lives i.e. government involvemet is good.

Or as HL Mencken said:



The typical lawmaker of today is a man devoid of principle--a mere counter in a grotesque and knavish game. If the right pressure could be applied to him he would be cheerfully in favor of polygamy, astrology, or cannibalism.





And my current favorite:



The only good bureaucrat is one with a pistol at his head. Put it in his hand and it's good-bye to the Bill of Rights.
