I'm really trying to be patient here, and didn't Enron execs bilk many out of millions? They stole from people. What does that have to do with not wearing a helmet? Nothing I believe. And no, you didn't prove that affects anyone of any consequence but ME. Your "proof" can be regurgitated for any activity from online surfing to tiddly winks to couch potatos. What I do with my life should be mine, as long as it hurts nobody else. That is the ideal we should expect in this country. The freedom to be left alone. Whatever happens to me on a motorcycle, helmet or no, is my own personal responsibility, not yours, the government, or anyone else. Understanding that concept, while difficult, certainly makes sense.
