What is it about the Helmet threads... - Page 2  

post #31 of 34

It's emotional because people don't typically react well to being told what to do or not.

It can be rationalized on both sides of the argument.

 

Me? I grew up racing where the helmet was only for DH, then super-G. Mashing rapid-gates into your lips into your teenage braces was the norm. Faceguards became popular.

 

Fast forward ten years and then I've got kids. Now between the cycling, dirt bike riding, skiing, skateboarding, skiing and climing, our family of four has over 24 helmets. No regrets.

 

I've personally bashed my head so many times now that I'm stoked on helmets. And I've seen my kids fail-rail enuff to be glad I've got their melons protected.

 

I care about me, so I wear a helmet. I care about my kids so I make them wear helmets. The rest of you, I could care less about. Its up to you. But with an ER doc as a best friend and the long list of stories told of deaths and brainbramage resulting from lack of helmets is enuff for me to to be an advocate.

It's not just helmets... shall we start a fat ski vs. skinny ski thread and see how that goes?  There's a couple of these topics on here that really seem to get people fired up.

 

I honestly have no idea while people get so riled up about this.  I personally am fine with whatever choices people want to make regarding helmets.  I don't think people are idiots if they don't wear helmets and I don't think they're sheep if they do.  I can only assume that people are looking for validation for their own choices?  I just don't get why certain issues really bring out the fight in some people, though.

A lack of excitement in many lives.
