Helmet Schmelmet

Yea I can now get rid of that stupid helmet because a study told me too.

OK kidding, I don't care if cars drive closer, you get hit without one and you are seriously F#$%ed up.

It's like the idoits that don't wear a seatbelt because the 1 in a 1000 people that get stuck in the car after and accident and the seat belt traps them, versus the thousands of people that get saved everyday because of them.
