Things creepers might want to know: I'm 20, female, and pansexual. I post what I want, when I want. You can expect to see fursonas, Dr. Who, Avengers, Harry Potter, Castle, Rizzoli & Isles, animals, nature shots, tons of Supernatural things (because Misha, that's why), and many other misc. things. My askbox is always open.
Oh, and before anyone gets too excited, I'm in a serious relationship, so don't even ask. I have quite a few pets, including a dog, cat, two gerbils, some fish, and a ball python. Yeah, I'm a busy person.
I do not know the individual involved in this, but, as an EMT, I feel compelled to post things like this. Wear a damn helmet, guys. I know you may think you look awesome and all the ladies will love how reckless you are, but you’re honestly just demonstrating just how little you value your own life. I know this horse has been absolutely beaten to death over the years, and I’m sure that my words won’t change some of your minds, but just look at the damage sustained by that helmet. Now imagine if your face was put through the same situation. While the helmet merely had part of it ground away by the sheer friction involved, your skull would be pudding. End of story.
TLDR Version: Wear a freaking helmet.
Wear. A. Fucking. Helmet. There’s a reason people in healthcare call them ‘donorcycles’.
This goes for bicycles too. I was very fortunate that when I was hit by a car and skid 10 ft on my face, the worst I had was road rash all down the left side of my face, and an odd clicking sound in the base of my skull when I walk.
This could have been a drastically different story, and I was very fortunate to have even walked away. The EMTs had no clue why I wasn’t more badly hurt considering my bike was mangled and the dude’s car was busted where he hit me.
