This exactly - reminds me of an old George Carlin route on driving "Anyone driving slower than me is a moron, anyone driving faster than me is a maniac!"
(Offcamber beat me to the post with that one.)

I see a lot of posts on here deriding Kevlar jeans. "The seams will bust!" or "...just a false sense of security!" , but have yet to see any documented cases of Kevlar jeans "failing" in an accident.

Another fun one is "Steel toed boots will cut your toes off!" Nevermind that Mythbusters blew that one up, and let's face it, an impact forceful enough to crush the steel cap into your digits would almost certainly rip your toes clean off, irrespective of your footgear.
