On the matter of winning the argument: It is a characteristic of forums that the supporters of one side or other join in the argument when the person whom they support falters. When Bompington lost his composure and started fabricating quotes and swearing, you and several others came to his aide. When you lost your composure and started being insulting something similar happened, cooldad, tried to be cool and shouldbeinbed tried something similar, Bompington tried to make out he was enjoying himself, no one believed him, and now someone wants to lock the thread. You know enough to know this is because you and yours are losing the argument. Try for another opinion, try and get someone you know to read the exchanges and say yes Wirral_Paul your argument is clear and logical you are getting your point across.
Meanwhile, your points, what points? You claim I am contradicting myself, how so? Certainly the examples you attempt to give are just cobblers.
Earlier on page three of this thread, you said:
“Oh - and 8 years racing, 6 at 2nd Cat and a lot of crashes in my 20's when i didnt have the sense of self preservation i have now and was pretty much a lunatic descender. No head injuries though strangely.”
To me this seems to say you did not wear a helmet in your youth, that you were a little reckless, presumably came off, but did not hit your head. Now older with a better sense of self preservation you wear a helmet and you are on record as admitting you did hit your head while wearing a helmet. Your experience matches mine. Surprise....
Please point out where I have claimed “proof” rather than presented “evidence”.
Tom Crisp's opinion is evidence it is not proof, it was articulate and interesting and it matched my experience and apparently yours and probably that of most of the readers of this thread. But you don't like it, please explain why.
