You head must not be worth much--otherwise you would protect it.
Does a tinfoil hat count?
You bet. I also wrap myself in bubble wrap when I get out of bed. Heck even in bed I try not to roll over for fear I may hit the floor and break my neck. But hop on my Harley with nothing but shorts and flip flops - he(( yeah!
Once upon a time, a bike helmet kept me from whacking my beautiful skull into some unforgiving pavement.
In '69 I was hit from behind while waiting for a light change on a 305 Honda, sans helmet. I was thrown back to the windshield and hit my head causing a concussion then launched 50 feet forward, landing on the centerline and a car coming from the other way ran over my right calf. I have no recollection of any of it. Woke up in the hospital the next day, head feeling like a stick of dynamite exploded in it and from my ribs to my toes was the color of a purple plum. No permanent damage done, others may argue that it explains a lot about me!
Did have a helmet at the time. Wore it religiously after that.
