Nope I'm that good lookin that I have to land on my face so the rest of my buddies have a chance!
True story: A few years ago when I still wore glasses, I was chasing my buddy down a medium grade run. My glasses had fogged and I hit a bump straight legged without seeing it! I went straight up, then rotated forward in the air and came down head first... Shattered my goggles pretty good. But they saved my face (for the most part... lol)
But yeah, bands stretch, goggles scratch, things break, I like having multiple pairs that I replace when they get old/damaged. Same with gloves, I never only have one pair.
