To Sum Up......Coconut Heads Everywhere?
Incredible and fab for the wishlist but.....
Who buys these insanely expensive toys?
How quickly do they become obsolete?
Most importantly, are they safe?
As I watched one guy get tossed back and forth like he was riding a mechanical bull, it occurred to me that ergonomic health goes right out the window once you park your little tush on that innocent looking death machine.
I imagine there are more than a few chuckles among the ER medical staff when you show up with real-life whiplash from a make-believe video game.
I also think that helmets should probably be worn.
Because one day soon, someone will become dizzy while pretend-driving the death machine, misjudge his coordination and fall head-first out of it and split his skull open like a coconut.
But the whole “head injury” thing is futile.
As Jerry Seinfeld once said, “We found ourselves participating in many activities that were cracking our heads."
"We chose not avoid these activities and the helmet was invented; just so we could continue our head-cracking lifestyles.”
And we’ll go down fighting.
We’ll crave the adrenaline rush and we’ll subject ourselves to thrills and chills of the third kind until the day we die.
I guess that’s how the helmet and death machine companies stay in business.
Here are a few of the safer versions......you know you're all fired up now!
