Brain buckets

With the recent crash of Ben Roethlisberger, the debate over motorcycle helmet laws has picked back up.

Most say that the statistics show that they're benneficial.

I don't think so.

Wanna know why? Read this article from Forbes.

I have a motorcycle license. I have since I was 17. I don't own a bike right now because, for my family's sanity, I hung it up after my dad died in an accident two years ago. He wasn't wearing a helmet, but it wouldn't have done any good.

Before then, I wore one. I didn't have an option since I was under 21...

I'm looking to get a bike again sometime soon. When I do, I don't know if I'll be wearing one or not.

I always have worn one, so that's what I'm comfortable with. On the other hand, I have gone without a couple times, and it's not THAT big a deal, long as I get something over my eyes just to keep stuff out of 'em.

Odds are I'll wear one just to shut up my family.
