    Why can't we make helmets out of the same stuff that's on the tips of those bullets?

    I'm just sayin. :eek:

    Were I he I would want to keep the helment that was struck. I agree with Garp (Robin Williams) in the movie re buying the house just hit by an airplane. Once something has been "disastered" it is unlikely to happen again.:rolleyes:

    the Lord was certainly watching over him, +1 on keeping the helmet, How many other people that have a hole in thier helmet are still breathing?

    It says after sitting a while, which is fair enough, he got back up on the line and carried on !

    Now thats someone you want on your team...
     
  8. A very lucky Britisher indeed! St. George was on the job that day for sure! :D Even though it was penetrated, it is very likely the helmet saved his life by deflecting the round ever so slightly.
