Helmet vs no helmet - Page 15

post #421 of 468
I prefer helmet than a hat. More comfortable for me. I feel too warm in a hat.

So is it "pipefitter" or is it "pipe fitter"

If the pipe fits...

Wait, did you shell fit that pipe?

I bet it's too big.

always better to be safe than sorry!!!

I've been in bycicle accidents where if I had my helmet on it would have pulled my head under my body on concrete and I would have snapped my head and died.  Instead I just face planted inches onto grass.

I will be wearing a helmet because I want to race, and I don't believe the ski helmet design is conducive to yanking your head around like an aerodynamic bike helmet is (with large protrusions).

I don't understand why you would want to smash a perfectly good helmet with a rock?? Oh I understand you decided to not wear one anymore and destroyed that one with a rock to keep you true to your commitment
I admire your commitment!!! HURRAH!!

I actually wear two helmets.  Better to be extra-safe than sorry...always wear red, it's the safest color!
post #435 of 468
I actually have 2 helmets and don't wear either. I do carry one in my car when I ski just incase.

Yep, the last thing you want on your head in a bicycle accident is a helmet. Most fatalities of bike riders are from their helmets pulling their heads under their bodies resulting in snapped heads and death. Your mom only tells you to wear one because she wants you to die!

Bicycles are slow anyway.  I don't wear my helmet on one because its only required for kids. I have managed to survive over 50 years without one....why start now.

I do wear it on the motorcycle cause it makes me look so core.

I wouldn't consider snowmobiling without a helmet. I'd have to say, mine has probably saved a few bumps and teeth here and there. as well as keeping me from freezing when it's below zero going 65mph or more.

Imagine if the helmet wasnt there to save your head from those rocks!!
post #440 of 468
I knew mom was up to more then saving a few bucks on a helmet. She use to always say , there are better places to put a few dollars. Mustta been in my insurance plan.
I knew she liked you better!!!

Would love to, but I don't wanna be on the History Channel's 'Gangland'. 

I really gotta head east sometime next winter, that would be a good time.

Right now I am sitting in the icu at st. Anthonys hospital in Denver. On Friday my ski buddy, big money sonny, came down on a rock after catching an edge. He was airlifted out of montezuma bowl and they saved his life. He broke about 15 bones in his face, broken ribs, ruptured spleen, broken and dislocated hip, broken femur, broken neck, and broken back. He was wearing a helmet. He doesn't have any brain injuries and luckily doesn't have any spinal chord damage. If he wouldn't have been wearing a helmet he probably never would have made it off the slopes alive and definitely would have had brain damage. So what I'm trying to say is be smart and wear a helmet.

The serious side of a silly thread.  Best wishes to your friend.  That sounds like a really tough accident, and really glad he is still with us.   Mountain rescue can do amazing things with severely injured skiers.
