I guess you could tell that to his widow whom was pregnant at the time that he passed.
I don't think there's anything at all stylish about wearing a helmet. I don't care who is wearing what brand of helmets on the slopes. The only people that I notice NOT wearing helmets are kids, if you want to throw me into that "sheep/follower" category, then so be it. Ignorance is bliss, after all.
My BIL is a psychologist whom works with head injury patients at NYU medical center. Maybe he could hook you up with some of his anti/non- helmet peeps. You guys could laugh, cry, chat, drool, forget what was just said with one another. It would be gold.
