The Helmet

March 14, 2010

“There are many things, that you can point to, and prove humans are not smart. But my personal favorite would have to be, that we had to invent the helmet. What was happening, apparently, is that we were involved in a lot of activities that were cracking our heads.

We chose not to avoid these activities but instead come up with some sort of device to help us to continue to enjoy, our head-cracking lifestyle. The Helmet !

Even that didn’t work, because enough people weren’t wearing them, so we had to come up with the helmet law, which is even stupider because the idea behind the helmet law is to preserve a brain, who’s judgment is so poor, that it doesn’t even try to stop the cracking of the head it’s in!”
