Default Helmet saved Dubya's life

Dubya has fallen off his mountain bike when he hit a patch of loose soil on a
downhill while riding a 17 mile loop on his ranch in Texas . He injured his
knees, hand, chin and nose. He was wearing a helmet and mouthguard (?).
Afterwards in an interview the Leader of the Free World commented "I am
indebtified to my helmetification for savericating of my life. God bless
America" Mr Bush is 57

Another excellent argument against helmets then!

How's that? I don't think anyone, in his case, would notice any brain damage
that a helmet might (or might not) avoid...

And I don't buy any of the Labour line pointing out that Saddam wasn't

international law to the wind and committed the world to a

Speaking from somewhere near the diametrically opposite end of the
political spectrum, well said that man. That is _precisely_ why it was
wrong to go to war without a 'new' UN resolution.

But I didn't advocate sending you to a death camp for it. I
just pointed out you were top-posting, you are are you not,
