Five Tips For Choosing The Right Motorcycle Helmet

Feb 12, 2015, 5:06pm

What if you drop your helmet?
There is also a lot of fear mongering about dropped helmets.

This is a problem because no one can ever guarantee that a helmet has not sustained any damage in a drop. How many 'little' drops affect the helmet' s ability to protect the wearer in the event of that one major impact?

Manufacturers and safety authorities are bound to err on the side of caution and to advise that the helmet should be replaced if it has sustained an impact. This is because they cannot take the risk of saying 'that it is alright to re-use it after the drop'.

Use common sense
If you drop your helmet or it fell off your bike (stationary), then there would be little chance of damaging the outer shell or the inner shell which actually absorbs the energy on impact. However, if you throw your helmet against a wall or down the road in a fit of rage, then you could damage the outer shell and affected the helmet’s ability to protect you (Gibson, 2004).

You can die by tripping over when walking if the stars align correctly. My point being, Jesus does love superlatives and sensational titles.

Samsung Galaxy S5 Australian Hands-On And Video

Mar 6, 2014, 12:43pm

5 out of 6 of my friends who have S3 phones have had problems.
The odd number theory isn't so crazy. Same concept applies to Windows. 95 bad. 98 good. 2K bad. XP good. Vista bad. 7 good. 8 bad. 8.1 good.

Samsung Galaxy S5 Australian Hands-On And Video

Feb 28, 2014, 4:04pm

If there's one thing I've learned from owning 3 Galaxy S phones, never buy an odd number.
I had an S (1), it was buggy as hell. My S2 was flawless until I dropped it in mud :(. I then had an S3 and it was even worse than the S - at least every 3rd day phone calls would have the microphone mute after 30 seconds and I'd have to reboot the phone via battery pull.
I left Samsung after the S3 and bought a Nexus 5 because I needed a reliable phone. Friends who got the S4 said it's been no problems. I forsee software issues with the S5 based on history.

What Is Your Ideal Soundtrack For Falling Asleep?

Feb 24, 2014, 6:40pm

Generally MoS Chill Out Sessions, The Best Of Listen and Relax, Gate Crasher 3rd CDs (the chill out ones), any ambient trance really. Last night was Joe Satriani Unstoppable Momentum.

It depends though. Some nights I can't have a single noise playing or I'm too distracted.

As the map key says, it's global warming per area. Japan is a small area, so its increase per size is larger than the others.
