I mean, we're men right? We all have Larry, Moe, and Curley down there don't we? Haven't our buddies down there ever gotten a good knee strike by a distraught female? Haven't any of us ever gotten a good fast moving missle-like projectile zero in on our buddies like a Patriot Missle intercepting a deadly SKUD missle?

And if you are mildly familiar with the laws of physics, as cyclists traveling ~20mph or more on our steeds only exaggerates the dangers our three buddies may suffer.

I propose in addition to mandatory helmet use, all men should also be mandated to wear athletic supporters with cups in them. Why ask why?...it's safer! If it's safer, than it's better...can you argue with logic like that?

How many times in your life have you witnessed another dude getting his three buddies smashed with something launched at his jewels? Isn't the instinctual response by all males who witness this unfortunate demise a shocked verbal noise of empathy? Don't let it happen you or others...wear your cup when you ride...call your congressman and state attorney and petition to mandate cup wearing when cycling!

Be American! Let the government and special interests rule your lives...because you don't know any better!!!!

God Bless America...My Home Sweet Home...

Protecting the family jewelsLeanneWilde

My high school football coach had a speech he would give the boys every a year about protecting the "family jewels." I was clueless. I thought he was talking about their watches and class rings.

Keep those jewels safe now you hear boys! And if it takes some new laws to do it then I am all for it!

Goodness and God Bless America, Amen!

The point of helmet laws is, the benefit society by preventing the further reduction of the average American IQ through individual brain damage.

Manditory cup l;aws, by further preserving the flow of male hormones to our already testosterone soaked society, would have rather the OPPOSITE effect.

I say, manditory castration laws. You can't hurt what you ain't got.

Very funny, and your point is well taken. Two observations:

1) from a different perspective, you could say "Be American, let the clueless, self-absorbed dolts who would ordinarily be weeded out of society, Darwin-style, ruin your life while the law protects them" To illustrate my point, I offer you this: http://www.rossdillon.com/
Something similar happened a few years ago where I live, before I started riding. A coworker of mine SMEARED a cyclist down the road, and he got off just by saying "I didn't see her" To say anything else is to admit to a felony.

2) Pause, look around, and you'll see so many blatant examples of men overcompensating for a mediocre set of family jewels that it gets disturbing. If anything, the government should issue "enhancement" surgery, free of charge, to those who need it. Hell, we should just offer an all-expenses paid "enhancement" trip to the Mayo Clinic to Saddam Hussein. The world would be a much more peaceful place...
