Re: Boy Thread: All Roads Lead To Back Bacon

What I've been taught... in non-medical schools... is that a break is when the bone is broken completely through, like a pencil snapped in half, and a fracture is when there is a break, but the parts are not separated... like, uh.. a splintered pencil that hasn't broken all the way. Of course, furt...

Re: Wearing a helmet during alpine activities.

Of course the helmets prevent more serious injuries, and that's what they're designed to do, but just assuming that they'll be effective in ways they aren't is significantly more harmful than beneficial. The best option, as I've explained, is to be well aware of these limitations and adjust behavio...
