    • What do you call a motorcyclist without a helmet?

      My cousin, who I didn't really know, was killed this way. Slid out on some loose gravel on the road, no helmet.
      What kind of cheese are you planning to put on top?

        Yeah, it's just purely insane to do that. I saw a car accident recently where the driver of the car that was hit was wearing his seat belt but because the car was struck on the drivers side door with such force he died instantly anyway.

            The entire GQP platform is "nuh uh!" I absolutely don't understand the infatuation with the early 19th century frontier lifestyle that... didn't exist the way they've fetishized it.
            Isn't it all just risk tolerance? What about people who hang glide or skydive or climb El Capitan without ropes or safety gear? I'm not interested in doing those things, nor am I interested in riding motorcycles, in part because I think they are dangerous. But don't we all get to choose our own risk tolerance for things like that?
            That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                You could use this to rationalize away any law you like.

                There are times when it simply isn't safe to swim in a body of water. Sure, you may think you're invincible, but that's fine. You aren't. And I don't think it's that weird to periodically ban swimming when it's not safe.

                      White children, anyway. Any predictions on whether the racial breakdown of the incarcerated kids matches the county? Even after correcting for socioeconomic status?

                        Fine, so long as you don’t harm others *or even put them at greater risk.* if some cleanup crew has to come along and leisurely scrape up the goo formerly known as you off the base of El Capitan, at your estate’s expense, then have a ball.

                        But if you go swimming in known dangerous conditions, the coast guard or the lifeguards are still coming for you - at great personal risk to themselves. No bueno.

                        On the surface, not wearing a motorcycle helmet doesn’t really seem to put anyone else at risk - but there should be a law that unhelmed motorcyclists should never be allowed to sue anyone else for their injuries.

                          Non-helmeted motorcyclists impact our automobile insurance rates because they will end up with higher medical bills and that cost transfers to the rest of us. If we could move the costs of any accident entirely back to the yahoo not wearing a helmet, then I couldn’t care less. But that’s simply not how it works in the real world.
