Default Re: Football player crashes, helmet in orbit

Not to start a helmet debate but did anyone read the helmet article in this month's Motorcyclist. Great interesting reading. Is you helmet too hard? Is SNELL the best standard? etc... Some interesting statistics about multiple injuries besides head injuries being a real concern...

Default And they said it couldn't be done!

My ancient Mac at work has been doing some strange things lately. I don't know how I managed to perform the elusive "Quadruple Lindy" post.



I think it's trying to tell me to stop f'cking around on MO and get some work done.

I read it. Very interesting. I suggest everyone read it. But they did determine that although some helmets were harder (Snell)--and transmitted more g loading--they all were good.



The most interesting part was how the second cheapest helmet in the test--the $80 Z1R-- might have been the best one (according to their test parameters.)

You know the rule about multiple posting don't you? Any more of this and you WILL be reported to the authorities. VWW

No, I didn't. Should I expect the Internet Thought Police to show up at my door?



Considering my ability to think, they'd be wasting their time.

This is a perfect example of what can happen when people must think for themselves. We need legislation that requires all helmets to be self-fastening. Any loss of life for any reason cannot be tolerated.
