Dont read this if you dont like reading long things.
and i was going to ask for the haters to stay out but whats a rant without people hating on your oppinions.
Ok to everyone whos doesnt wear a hlemet:
Dont be a jackass, wear a fucking helmet! i dont understand why you dont wear one, is it really fucking worth it? I know all your gay fucking excuses like "i always do this stuff, its easy to me. I dont need a helmet for it" well shit happens, you could have done it 100,000 times perfect but on the 100,001 time you could catch fuck up and hit your head and screw up your season or your fucking life. and dont be like"oh it makes my head look big" What the fuck are you, a fucking girl? well thats what you sound like, "oh does this make me look fat?". And who the fuck was playing fashion police when thier like " oh helmets arnt cool" who ever they are are fucking dumb.Sure style is a good thing but if it comes to fucking up your life who cares, just put on a damn helmet and save you, your family, and the ski resorts the fuckong trouble and put one on. Think about it, if you fall and hit your head you could get off lucky and
A-get a miled cuncussion(sp?),
B-get a serious concussion(sp?) and forget everything you fucking know(i will share a small story later),
C-fucking get a bad injurey and end up a fucking vegetable living off of machines for the rest of your life, and go into a coma.
D-or just plain and simple DIE.
Think about all of those options and think about the consiquences(sp?)
A- nothing serious happens, your parents get worried and you get a bad headache and bump on your head.
B- you are helicoptered out of the resort, get sent to emergency. You dont remember your friends, brother, sister, cousins, mom, dad and the rest of your family. You forget most of the shit you were doing in school resulting in you having to relearn 1 or 2 years worth of shit. years of priceless memories go down the drain.Your parents are crying and put through fucking hell because you dont remeber them. and the resort possibly gets sued.
^^so you just fucked yourself over, your family and possibly the resort.
C- Well speaks for itself really, your parents/ relatives are crying because they will never know the same son( or daughter) again, they never get to talk to you again, and you never get to talk to them again, Instead they get to watch your vitals pop up on a screen beside the bed where you lye unconsious.(if your in the USA) they are also stuck with all those fucking expensive medical bils. the resort might again get sued.
^^ again you fuck your self over, you fuck your parents and realtives over, and possibly the resort.
D- Again speaks for itself. You DIE! your parents are again going through even more hell, mourning over there loss(same with relatives) they have to pay for an expensive funeral and well bury there child, which no parent should have to do. and again the resort might get sued.
as you can see none of these scenarios are good. so again just do everyone a favor,forget the fact you look stupid in a helmet( if its that important spend the extra $$ ona stylish helmet) and just wear one.
I am actually pretty proud of the fact that i 95% see skiers wear helmets(even the pros, they basically always wear helmets), but i practically never see anyone who snowboards wearing a helmet, the pros never touch them unless they have to and the only time i really see snowboarders with helmets is when there under the age of 13 after that there to cool for them.
2 years ago my cousins best friend was just boarding down a run doiong some carves( no jumps, boxes, rails etc...) caught an edge and fell head first onto a patch of ice. She was no beginner either at the time of the accident she had been snowboarding for 5 years. Should had been heli boarding before and can easily do any black or double black diamond. After the accident she forgot EVERYTHING, she didnt remeber her friends(even her closest ones) ,what school she went to ,what city she lived in, and last but least her family, her parents and everything. It just goes to show you that no matter how many times youve done something or how good you are, you can still fall and get fucked up.
WEAR A FUKING HELMET.
end of rant.
