Sweet Hoy Diver

Hi.

I have been using the Holy Diver form Sweet since this winter for land and water use. It is a good piece of gear, well worth its price tag.

Nah, it just irks me when a helmet is used as a safety pancea, when it is often irrelevant.

Case in point:

About a month ago, one of my sponsors* (Sid's Job) was getting a new piece of pavement put in. A backhoe had came and dug a 1ft deep, large square that concrete will rest in. The backhoe left and there was a gentleman using a spade to make sure that the pad was nice and even.

And he was wearing a helmet.

He was digging. There was nothing overhead. Nothing to hit him in the head.

I had to ask: "Excuse me, but why are you wearing a helmet"

Shovel Guy: "Because they said I have to"

Sid: "Even when digging"

SG: "Yep"

Sid: "Do you have to wear steel toed shoes or a back brace? That would make sense, at least"

SG: "Nope"

So I thanked the guy for his fine work and apologized for interrupting him. I really should have asked if his boss' name was Rick...


Ridiculous, but true.

Sid...Think hard, maybe they are repressed memories. Sometimes we hide things in our mind that were traumatic.

Plus i want Lloyd to were the 'cap' helmet, because i am afraid he might get beat up for wearing his Best cap :roll:
