Those living on the wild side may consider helmets, goggles, and knee pads as totally lame. Do you know what’s cooler than pulling off crazy stunts at the skatepark? Not leaving said skatepark in an ambulance to get your bones fixed. If you don’t believe that safety can be cool, take a look at this picture.
Imagine for a second how this person could have ended up had he not been sporting his “uncool” goggles. Best case scenario, he only loses most of his vision from his right eye. Make sure you wear the right PPE at all times, and also try to be on luck’s good side from now on.
