Re biker helmets(I remember 1 article some time back):-   http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/somerset/5334208.stm
I don't see how that proves or disproves a helmet being helpful during a bike crash. All that study proves is that already inconsiderate drivers get more so when a biker has a helmet on.

Quote from: Hannibal
What kind of bike helmet have you got?
I rode over 10 thousands km in the last 3 years wearing this helmet - http://www.alpebike.pl/sklep/images/oscgt/1505_1144_49eaf29fe7816.jpg
It's so comfortable and definitely do not obstruct my vision and sense of what is around me.
I have a similar helmet. At no point has it ever obstructed either my vision or hearing. The only problem I have with it is it makes you sweat more on a hot day.
I personally used to think helmets were dumb when I was younger. I've seen too many people messed up when they wipe out though to eschew one when riding a bike. I would feel very differently though if it was a full head/face helmet, like a motorcyclist's, as that would be more detrimental than beneficial.

I haven't got any problems with this.
My helmet is ventilated very well.

So there's no way to get your own food there? If I was stuck in the hospital I would try and get a friend to bring food, or bribe someone.

Yeah, I've usually worn a more obstructive and cheaper model I suppose, but I still feel uneasy with them. I would ride alot in NYC and I do believe drivers (if they see you) have some kind of subconscious fear of hitting you more if you don't have a helmet. But I may indeed get a helmet similar to this if I start biking regularly again.


I would think hospitals and airplanes would be the least hospitable places on earth to open raw meat. Perhaps you could hire a private nurse that makes raw egg shakes. I personally would try to get alot of avocado, but not sure if you eat those.

Aajonus took raw honey and raw eggs into family and clients in hospitals. You could even have someone bring in egg-honey shakes or egg-fruit smoothies.

What say we spare Tyler the debates about helmets and such until after he's out of the hospital? He could get in trouble for cursing at the computer. ;)

I have a similar helmet. At no point has it ever obstructed either my vision or hearing.

What the study proves is that in this case the dangers(ie car-drivers) are not prevented by wearing a helmet but indeed helmet-wearing actually encourages  the likelihood of accidents. In a similiar fashion, helmet-wearing psycho skiers feel invulnerable but couldn't care less what the negative effects of wearing their helmets have on other more sensible skiers re the accidents the former cause.

  Considering that pemmican is ghastly heated animal fat, it would be the most harmful thing for me to eat right now(or at any other time). I'll settle for the low-fat stuff like cooked fish etc. Suddenly, crap hospital food sounds almost enticing by comparison.

All in all, things are looking up. Today I had my stitches removed, I'm off the dreadful antibiotic drips until the friday operation so no injections right now(still have to take antibiotic pills) and could leave hospital on Sunday. The only catch is that I now find I have to have 2  or 3 tiny titanium plates inserted inside my face during the operation, which will make  me a sort of cyborg I guess.

I've been trying to find out about the accident, but the doctor didn't know nor did the ambulance crew who sent me. I suspect a conspiracy as it's impossible for none of them to know, and indeed medical guidelines would at least require detailed knowledge of how someone got injured. They are probably afraid of people launching lawsuits or getting revenge or some such nonsense, so quietly drop all mention of any criminals involved in such accidents. At the very least, I'd like the guy who crashed into me to be banned from skiing for at least a decade, and from the more difficult slopes, for life.

I know how you feel; I had an accident riding (my helm did not help much) and spent more than a month with a lot of pain and doctor's. It was not me that caused the accident and I will be getting money to compensate (I will probably have to watch my knee for the rest of my life).

Many years ago I had a fracture under my eye; I can't remember having to take them out - perhaps they dissolved :o

Only Tyler has ever eaten "pemmican" made of ghastly heated animal fat, so if he ever makes any more and offers it to you, don't eat it.

Rubbish as usual. I have never claimed to have eaten pemmican at all. I have eaten crappy heated animal fat which is heated much like pemmican(but isn't pemmican), so am understandably rather wary of the inevitable health-problems reported by other RPDers who have indeed eaten the revolting genuine pemmican.

I just had an eye-test. I think it was to safeguard the doctor or me,  as the only real nasty side-effect that can occur as a result of this operation is worse vision in my right eye. Well, the doctor seemed very competent and the operation seems rather simple.

Anyway, tomorrow is my operation. Not sure if I can use the Internet until Sunday. Depends on circumstances. I have to slip out of hospital in order to access it. And they do these checks every 3 hours on patients' blood pressure etc. which I'm supposed to be present for. My only regret is that I have to once more have that vicious antibiotic needle shoved into my arm, tomorrow. Those needles gave me a very inflamed right elbow for a time.

  Given your trollish advice to eat pemmican and ghee, people are already living dangerously if they follow your "advice". I choose to recommend healthy foods instead.

Hey Tyler how's the hospital food? Can anyone sneak you raw, like in that play "We want to live'.  I would assume that going from all raw to all cooked would have some kind of an impact on you.

  It's not so bad. Hospitals don't like offering cooked animal fat so I'm safer than in other non-RPD situations. I'll be out on Monday, it seems, so from then on I'll be eating raw stagmeat etc.

Operation went ahead, I still have a swollen right eye, with it being bloodshot, but I'm told it will pass. In the meantime, it's giving me a dull ache.

That's great. Has your tolerance for cooked foods other than cooked animal fats improved? What kind of fats are they using?

  Oh, it was just lean cooked meats plus lots of fruit and veg and endless soups with some gunk in them. Those just make me more tired but I would not notice such differences when lying constantly in a hospital bed.  It is cooked animal fat which really fouls up my day if I have it. Anyway, I am now recuperating outside hospital so am back to RVAF diet as usual.
