I'm concerned...


... that all the protective gear kids wear today is going to have some unexpected consequences -- like dangerously elevating internal temperatures, slow roasting people's spleens by the time they're thirty.

We'll all be come soft, gelatin-like creatures that have to use robotic exo-skeletons. Hey that'd be cool. I think the real concern should be that all this Purel and anti-bacterial soap will hasten the evolution of some super bacteria that will destroy us all.

My wife and I were once driving around a suburb, and we saw this kid playing in the yard with a helmet on. We assumed that he had gotten off his bike and not removed the helmet. But seeing a kid running around his front yard with a helmet on was pretty funny. We still laugh about the kid who was so clumsy he had to wear a "yard helmet".

And another thing: what's up with car seats for kids? When I was a kid, we bounced around the backseat unrestrained and even fought over the spot waay in the back of the station wagon where you had to sit perpendicular to the motion of the vehicle. Most of *us* lived!

Bet this kid wishes he had a living room helmet.

why learn to walk when you can learn to be fired out of a small cannon?

a safety video with a baseball bat would probably convince me to buy the product.

When seating is perpendicular to the direction of travel, it's a jitney.

I mean parellel, and I think you did, too.
