Welcome to the wild, whacky world of Vertical C where unrelated things are dubiously related (in his mind) and then offered as scientific fact.

There has been some speculation his parents may have been closely related as well.

Personally, I don't believe it, but it made a good punch line.

That raises the question: Why?
When someone so adamantly defends atgatt... shouldn't he have not suffered such injuries? Or at least only once and then not again?

I can understand that there are people that for some reason don't want to ride with ATGATT, but saying that gear does not help is rather stupid IMO - it doesn't always help, but when it does it's worth it ;)

That's a very very weird interpretation.

One to three noteworthy motorcycle crashes (2 times as an unexpierienced teenager, 1 time snow) and two noteworthy car crashes (ice, inattentive because of going too slow) here, and every time my "no more gear than needed" (counting the seatbelt as gear) performed well as well.
Maybe a twisted ankle one time so it hurt a bit in physical education next day, that was all, needed no drugs. (Well, besides in one case making a dent in the front passenger's door and damaging the brake pedal and the centre console - however, the car was totaled, so that didn't matter.)

How do you know what "no more gear than needed" is in advance?

Some people can be told fire is hot, others have to touch it before becoming convinced.

Those with a more rational understanding of the elements at play are easily convinced prior to testing the hypothesis.

Luck will usually run out eventually. Physics never will.

I don't know if you can own ATGATT

I think you can own Gear, and you can own ALL the
gear, and if you own all the gear, and wear it all the time,
then maybe you practice "ATGATT"

But, correct me if I am wrong, but ATGATT isn't "gear"
