It's been a while since a technically ignorant person kept banging on
about hammers to try to prove something. Or that paramedics have
discovered a new branch of physics.

I think you would need a Raufoss 211 to penetrate Medway's skull.

To be fair, he could be shot in the head and survive.

Do all bicycle users spend their time trying to perform stunts?

The youngster had not been wearing a helmet because he thought he
thought the life-saving practice was 'uncool'.

Stupid is as stupid does as cyclists do. Probably council estate
scum. Most cyclists are council estate scum.

Well quite, if someone believes that a device worn over the top of the
head protects the face. No different to you then.


Indeed, if he did a face plant wearing a helmet the protruding brow of the helmet could have snapped his head back and broken his neck. This appears to be a case of not wearing a helmet saved his life.


We haven't heard that one for a while.

"Rotational forces" and "increased dimensions" (orsomething), wasn't it?

Apparently, if the outside dimensions of the head are that little bit
less because of the absence of a protective helmet, the head will
magically float above the road surface by the all important few
millimetres that the helmet is not adding and obviate all ompact and
impact injury.

It's been a few years since anyone tried that line on. The Medway
Handyman was particularly scathing about it.


*guffaw*

Citing David Lang as a reference! What's next? David Icke?

The 'Medway Handyman' was also 'particularly scathing' about the way no one
seemed to take on board his belief that road tax exists, and that banning
cyclists from certain stretches of the A2 does not constitute 'a ban on
cyclists using the public highway'.

Put more succintly: what a stupid *******.
