Default Protecting the head ...


New research tells us how to protect the head when engaging
in potentially-risky activities. Could be a useful one when
facing a well-meaning friend who has silly ideas ...

Perhaps we can persuade Fat Eric to campaign for a mandatory minimum
blood alcohol level for cyclists. If just one child.....er...no, that
won't work ;-)

Hint
And there was talk of a voucher system for helmets, wasn't there?

Oh, I dunno, though. When the infant me had an upset stomach, my mother
used to give me gripe water, which in those days contained an
appreciable amount of alcohol; and I developed a taste for it. This
laid the foundation for the excellent habit of head-protection which I
continue to this day. Can't be too careful.

Thanks for posting this Nick.

I for one was lucky enough to have been very well protected when I
suffered my most serious head injury. Given the severity of that
accident I am in little doubt that I probably wouldn't be here today
without this protection.

So what are your views on compulsion?

How do you know that your helmet didn't worsen your injury?

I thought he meant he was well bladdered when he had his accidents. I
would be against compulsory binge drinking for cyclists though ;-)

But perhaps cyclists could be spare the VAT and other duties levied on
the protective elixir.
