I'm from NH

Our state motto is Live Free Or Die.

Yeah, there are decent reasons not to wear a helmet sometimes. Yet, here we are with no helmet, no shirt, no gloves and possibly sneakers on his feet, I can't remember. I'm not sure this is what the founding fathers had in mind when they came up with the motto. I'm equally sure that this fine specimen of youth and health will be greatly appreciated by whoever gets his donated organs.

Kidding. I wish him the best of health and I'm sure he rides very carefully.

    All he wanted
    Was to be free
    And that's the way
    It turned out to be . . .

    Live free or die indeed.

    Exercising his right to do with his life as he wants. Stupidly, but hey, it's a choice, no?

    When we were waiting for a heart for my father, the nurses jokingly called people who rode without helmuts "future organ donors."

  4. Did you throw a bottle of sunscreen at him?

  5. Julia, we don't joke about that - Mr. Chili and I DO call them 'organ donors,' and we sincerely hope they actually have that designation on their licenses, because that's exactly what they are.

    Indeed, Mrs. C., indeed.

    Look, I don't wish this moron or others of his ilk any ill will, but I have absolutely no sympathy for him whatsoever if he suffers some misfortune while riding his bike like that.

  7. Honestly, I don't wish him ill either but it gives me the willies. Being that I'm from a place where helmets are mandatory its always surprising for me to see it.

    Snob, god, I wish I'd thought of that. If he survives his helmetlessness hes going to look ridiculous when he gets skin cancer and they start carving out parts of those tattoos.

    It may be his choice to ride helmetless, etc., but that's awfully selfish and self centered, considering the fact that I'm sure at least someone gets something out of him being alive - and if not, he's surely related to someone, who will get even less out of him being seriously injured and needing others to take care of him. What choice would they have in that situation, provided they are less self centered than he?
