I really dont get why someone would not wear a helmet. Comfort? Looks? Certainly snowboarders arn't known for their sense of "style". Honestly someone who does not wear a helmet looks more ridicules then someone wearing a diaper. No offense to anyone here. It looks even more ridicules when I see an adult not wear one, because they should simply know better. Ill admit i've been a total douche bag and yelled from the chair lift at some guy who was going down the slopes with his kids that had no helmets and said "man your kids looking so fcking awesome not wearing helmets". No one is good enough to not wipe out, and our heads are not that strong. It doesnt take much to end up a vegetable.
I wonder if anyone laying in a hospital bed because of a head injury who did not wear a helmet thinks "man if I only wore a helmet I wouldn't have to wear a bib the rest of my life" , or do they think "man i looked sick on those slopes with no helmet. Where is the nurse? I think I just sht my pants again"
It only pisses me off more that our healthcare covers all the medical bills for these dumb asses.
ok, rant is over. Just keeping it real...
