Don't be a grammar nazi - Marcus Aurelius, Meditations, Book 1 #7
just more of the nanny state
government thinking it knows better than parents on how to raise their children
“Most of the shadows of this life are caused by standing in one's own sunshine.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
In my kid's case, she was struck by a truck dragging a trailer and driving 45 mph. The bike went one way, the seat of the bike went another, and the kid went yet another, being thrown 15 feet in the air and landing on her head. Helmet was split four ways. DPS used to take that helmet around to schools. I still have it.
Kid spent the night in the hospital and was pretty scratched up, but she sustained no major injuries. I'll never forget seeing her stretched out on the grass unconscious with blood trickling out of her mouth just like in the movies. Or the remorseful truck driver, a young father himself, literally sitting in the middle of the road keening.
