When I ride my bike without a helmet I get weird looks, but the looks were weirder 15 years ago when I would also be smoking.

I am so mad at the anti-ladder-helmet lobby. They've convinced people you don't need to wear helmets when doing things like using a ladder. I mean, it's as safe as riding a bike, they say.

PEOPLE: WEAR YOUR LADDER HELMETS! YOU COULD FALL!

I'd like to comment on this, but I can't since I don't have a New York Times login.

You see?! No helmet! You've all been convinced you don't need a helmet on a ladder. And sure, 99% of the time you won't fall, but that 1 time you do and hit your head on the hard floor, you'll be sorry!

MANDATE LADDER HELMETS NOW!



Well, you've convinced me. I'm going to retro-fit all my ladders when I get home tonight.

Jedekai: meanmutton: bikerbob59: So, all of the people who rode bikes when there were no bike helmets are either dead of disabled?

No; just a higher percentage of them than the ones who wore helmets.

I've had two identical, low speed falls from a bike. No helmet: concision. Helmet: no concision. I'll keep wearing that helmet.

You sure about that?


It's so bad, he can only count to yam.

I have never worn and will never wear a helmet while riding a bicycle. Motorcycle; yeah, but not on a bike.

When I was a kid, wearing a helmet on a bike would have been dangerous because my friends would have whooped my ass for being a wussy.

Death to the nanny state. There are too many rules and regulations that make everything unfun. So we'll have a few extra potatoes; someone has to watch daytime TV.
