C’mon you two. I can’t stand to see my fellow web loggers beefing, especially over something as silly as whether bicyclists should wear helmets or not. The solution is simple: if you think the 100% chance that a modern bike helmet will make you look like a dork outweighs the rather small chance you will get creamed by a car while biking (or if you happen to be one of those “live fast, leave a non-dorky looking corpse” types), don’t wear a helmet. If you suspect that some motorists would just as soon take you and your bike out as look at you (or if you’re incurably dorky looking to begin with), wear a helmet.
See? It’ that simple. Now let’s go back to agreeing on everything all the time, beginning with the following statement: No one should ever ever ever ever wear one of these.
