There was a story on the news Thursday about this giant friggin snake carcass floating in some pond near a Tampa Bay nature trail.

The only bicyclist they could find to talk to was this nice young lady:




Here's the story.

Now, I've tried my helmet on backwards, but only when I was screwing around, and it's not very comfortable. Why would anyone try to wear it like this? And why doesn't someone correct this for the poor woman before she kills herself? :madman:

Oh lord. :p

it's just hard to look at that poor woman without laughing out loud. It's gotta suck to spend your 15 seconds of fame looking like a dumbarse

Someone should look up Susan's number and call her. That's funny.

How is that even remotely comfortable? Even out of the box, helmets come with the straps sorta close to set-up correctly. How do you sit there and re-strap the helmet that way, trying it on, re-strapping, etc, then finish with that result, look in the mirror and think "Yeah, THAT'S the ticket!"

Sheesh, some people's kids!

Cheers, Chris

I wonder if she was riding sans helmet, with just her cute little hat on, and someone asked her if she wanted to be on TV. She says yes, and someone hands her a helmet so she doesn't look like a complete doofus.

Kinda backfired if that's the case. ;)

The video is running on CNN.com. It's the video about the dead python in a park near Tampa. I saw it yesterday and wondered how long it would take to end up on passion.

You're a much better person than I am. I saw that video yesterday and immediately started to laugh out loud. :D Imagine, your 15 seconds of national fame and you look like a dope. At least I only look like a dope around my family and my riding buddies. I guess that is why she is wearing the ball cap underneath -- we all know those pesky bike helmets aren't at all comfortable.

This is proof of natures process of natural selection! The gene pool is a bit shallow in this poor woman!

I love it when you point out someone's got a helmet on backwards and they argue with you about it... "No, it's right, you can tell by the aerodynamics. Duh."

I see this at least a couple times a year. A while back at the Interbike Dirt Demo, I was kicking back under a tree right across from a recumbant manufacturers tent. Me and a bunch of other people taking a break couldn't control our laughter after watching a guy put his helmet on backwards and go for a spin on one of those contraptions.

Someone started with wearing a hat backwards. Then Criss Cross wore their pants backwards, and now someone wears their helmet backwards. WILL IT EVER END???

God you guys are all a bunch of square-asses! Don't you know the cool people wear helmets backwards? Like ball caps, you need to make a statement about your total apathy for the "right" way to wear them in order to be cool.

My prediction for next year, the cutting edge of cool will be to wear your bike helmet at a jaunty angle, with the visor bent upward.

hat under helmet in Florida

I don't know how people ride with hats under their helmets when it's above freezing. Makes me sweat just thinking about it.

And how she managed to get that helmet on like that puzzles the heck out of me. Did she put it on the right way and decide "that was too easy, it must go the other way"?

extra points for the obsure rap/hip hop reference.
