And that is why

You wear a motorcycle helmet.

If life gives you MELONS you may be dyslexic.

I concur with the first commenter's assessment: clearly an immortal with an unlucky streak. Perhaps a vampire in Benny Hill or Moe Howard's family on their way to find a blood meal.

I can't laugh at the first part but when the light pole falls - I burst out laughing.

Can't imagine the road-rash on the knees and elbows.

Makes me reconsider my half-helmet after watching that painful face-plant.

Must have "looked" so cool and "felt" so nice in that cute summer outfit.

I wonder how they look and feel after that.

and, after re-watching, this must be a terminator or something, because it won't stay down...

There is thy gold, worse poison to men's souls,
Doing more murders in this loathsome world,
Than these poor compounds that thou mayst not sell.
I sell thee poison; thou hast sold me none.

This is why I wear good gear.

She was behind me on a group ride Sunday. I made the tight left/right with no issues. She went down on the left. She cut it wide into the grass. When she came back on the asphalt she went down. She was thrown 15 feet.

Her helmet saved her life but she has a serious concussion. She has shoulder, back and hip scrapes and pain.

She has 26 years riding experience so I guess chit happens. When chit happens we rely on our gear to protect us.

My pirate friends don't wear anything more than cheap helmets. I am ATGATT. They still like me
