The doctor said if I were wearing one it would've killed me giving my neck the extra leverage to internally decapitate me.

This is why people should buy helmets with MIPS (Multi-directional Impact Protection System). It basically allows the outer part of the helmet to slip and rotate about the inner part of the helmet which is attached to your head. This provides the same or better impact protection as a regular helmet, but it allows your head to slide on things instead of digging in and breaking your neck. It also deals with off-axis impacts far better.

It's particularly important in mountain biking just because there's a lot of different obstacles for you to nail with your head when you bail. For the $100 a Giro Chronicle MIPS helmet costs, there just isn't a good excuse not to have one.

I mean, there's no problem that can't be fixed with a liberal application of brute force and ignorance.

I'm imagining the good doctor sitting in their office, pulling out a prescription pad and writing "Slap 'em upside the head"

In all seriousness, aviators are pretty much the best style of sunglasses for flying, as they cover all of your vision and don't leave any brightspots.

Not sure how to phrase this, but what is the cause of the skinniness of your fingers on the injured hand? It it due to the injuries, the compression glove, genetics, or something I haven't thought of?

Also, your surgeon, Mr Rauf appears to have a fantastic beard. Is it really as good looking in person?
