This is why we wear helmets

Well, I didn’t think I could make another helmet post this soon but sometimes you just can’t pass up the opportunity.

This week’s subject… extreme sledding.

That’s right ladies and gentleman.  A 62 year-old Michigan man, after strapping an old auto muffler to his back (filled with gas and gunpowder nonetheless) and attempting to light it, is in stable condition.  It all went wrong when the muffler exploded on his back instead of acting as a jetpack.  Who could have seen that coming?

But the good news is he was wearing a motorcycle helmet.

This story allows me to arrive at two conclusions.

1) The jetpack man probably isn’t an expert in the field of good ideas or common sense.

2) He still thought it was a good idea to wear a helmet.

So, come on.  If he can figure out it’s a good idea to wear a helmet then we all should be able to as well.

According to the Detroit Free Press, he does “outrageous things” at an annual sledding party every year.  I can’t wait to see how he’s going to top this next year.

    I’m into this idea. Jetpacks make every idea better.

    Think about it.
