Come on now, doesn't anybody remember when Dango's wife hacked his account? That was the last we saw of him here.

I grew up before bicycle helmets were "normal" for children. I still don't consider them "normal" for adults outside of a racing or stunting setting. I can remember watching ramp skaters on TV wearing pads and helmets and thinking they must all be seriously "hardcore" back in my youth.

I certainly don't support the use of motorcycle helmets or requirement for their federal approval being mandated by law. That's about as ridiculous as the seatbelt laws for adults.

I have wondered if DOT helmets and seatbelt laws will go away under odumbocare; it would save money on those crash victims who might otherwise linger for some time requiring lots of wasted medical care.
Your body is generally able to recover from damages sustained at the speed you can run. Which makes perfect sense from an evolutionary stand point, or even a creationist stand point for that matter.

As you move faster the potential for damage increases as the square of the speed. We naturally move at about15-mph (4-minute mile), or a maximum of 23.35-mph (Bolt in the 100-meter). So, at about 35-mph you are at 4-times more energy than the body can sustain and recover. At 55-mph you are at about 8-times what your body/brain can sustain and recover.

And, we shouldn't all be saddled with the costs of your elective decision to do an inherently dangerous thing. So unless we come to the point where the decision to ride without a helmet is considered a refactoring DNR order, so we don't get saddled with the medical and disability liability for the selfish decisions of the few: The societies interest is validly served by the requirement to ride wearing a helmet that is designed to minimize the potential for injury.

So you are saying it's ok for the government to pass a law for the "good" of all because of the actions of a few? That sounds a lot like what the anti-gunners are wanting to do.

I tell my clients with brittle diabetes to forget trying to get to the refrigerator in the middle of night and that they should keep a thermos of cold OJ right at the bedside.
A tube of glucose jell costs $10 per 3-pack, and has a couple of years shelf life. I keep one by the bed, and a small vial of glucose tablets in my pocket. Glucose hits your system now.

Fructose and sucrose take about 15 to 30-minutes to hit your system, which may be too long to save you.

Except riding a bicycle or motorcycle, isn't a constitutionally guaranteed right. It is a privilege, readily and correctly limited by the society. Nor, do you have the right in our society to commit suicide, and an attempt to do so, would be grounds both criminally and civilly to revoke your right to bear arms.

So the Government can do as it likes? Sorry, but that's just wrong, and anyone who loves freedom would agree. You have the right to make choices, and the government should respect those rights.

May I remind you of the 9th Amendment?

You have no right to drive. Driving is a privilege. When you are on your private property you don't have to wear a helmet.

Unfortunately we have accepted that as true, mostly I think because cars became plentiful during the first progressive era when the first big government types came to power.
