“A busy Saturday on the Rideau Canal has prompted Ottawa paramedics to urge skaters to wear helmets. Three women, ages 66, 26, and 36, were taken to hospital, two with broken wrists and one with a back injury.”The headline was: “Wear helmets while skating: paramedics”.
The only thing that would have prevented all these injuries would have been a ban on female skaters whose last digit of their age is a 6.
I am so sick of being told to wear a helmet for everything from bicycle riding, skiing, snowboarding, motorcycling, ski-dooing, tobogganing, skydiving (like that’s going to help in a 3000-foot plummet), ad nauseum.
Fortunately my bath is still sacrosanct. For now.
