    Is this a "mentally challenged" helmet #2?

    I don't know what I would do without all your approvals. I know it's a little unconventional but I really think the chicks would dig it. What do you think? Before you answer, I'm going to spend the extra bucks for the optional horns.

    I think you should carry a long joust. And then take it downhill.

    How's that weather in O.C.

    If you get that helmet(properly named helm.) I would definatly pay the extra for the horns. Then i would buy some gilded stallion head armour and mount it to my handlebars.
    Then as i ride i would cry out to the darklord of azzamagard!

    Jousting did not exist when that helmet was in fashion. Sporting lances did not exist. I believe the vast majority of the people who wore those helms were footmen from the Migration Era.

    Heh, Funny you should mention that...

    I study Medieval and Renaissance Swrodmanship.



    I gotta say, it is kinda fun to see something like that up here, but I am sure he is just poking happy-fun at the recent spate of "Does this make me look fat?" helmet questions we've been seeing a lot of recently...

    Well you asked..the only thing challenged is your inabiltiy to be truly funny. Nice try at sarcastic wit, but it's so overdone it verges on the simply normal. Not really original. Not really imaginative. Must be a kid. Mentally speaking.

    I always thought it would be fun to carry a lance on the ski lift and joust with the downloaders. OK, I'm weird, I know.
    Your fear of looking stupid is holding you back.

    Horns are for posers! They didn't actually wear horned helms.
