Dude, Where’s My Front Wheel?
The nice thing about this helmet-gizmo is you get a comfy head pillow after the accident. You’d be pretty wiped out after a turbulent ride, so a big pillow is just what you need. And this isn’t just for after the accident; you now have a head pillow you can use for a long time. I bought this helmet and deliberately crashed my bike just so I can have a decent pillow at night.
My doctor says I may not walk again and that I’m a complete dolt, but a man needs his sleep!
We were all born kings. We were carried around on tuffets and sedan chairs and sat on thrones. Queens paraded us through the streets and we waved and everyone waved back. We were kings of the world. Do something worthy of that great station. Make a prince with your consort and keep the whole ball of wax rolling along.
We here at the BSBFB believe human beings, especially male human beings, could use a little more unstructured folderol in their lives.
So, for instance, here we have ingredients: An ocean to jump in, a little bike to ride, a little duct tape and foam, and a bunch of friends. There aren’t any rules. Just amuse yourself and your friends. That’s it. If this isn’t unstructured folderol, I don’t know what is. I’m sure they all went home sunburned and scraped and happy. The only problem, if there is one, is the camera.
We’re watching this on YouTube, so it would be easy to say that we’re part of this problem. But when the desire to produce a video artifact trumps the desire to do the actual thing, the world is upside down and backwards. Which it is.
Duct tape some foam on your kid’s bike and roll off a cliff into the ocean, and make a video. That’s fine. We’ll watch it, I promise. Go the next day, without the camera, just because you want to, and the same thing becomes sublime.
