    I seem to recall a study on head injuries in Tintin being done a while (i.e. at least a decade, if not more) back.

    (The conclusion being that by now Tintin had probably suffered severe permanent brain injuries.)

    How about testicular trauma from America’s Funniest Home Videos?

    My turn to be the spelling Nazi: You meant Wile E. Coyote.

    I wonder how much brain damage those ’70s T.V. cops and detectives must’ve suffered. It seemed like they were ALWAYS getting clubbed by the butt of a snub-nosed 38.

    Our tax dollars – pointy-headed academics – ivory tower – “science” – waste of resources, couldn’t they be curing cancer – peer-review, shmeer-review…

    There. Now that’s out of the way for this thread.

    The study makes a good point about the importance of using a helmet neck strap.

    “A helmet had been worn by 70.5% of victims but had been lost in the vast majority of cases (87.7%).”

    No wonder Krazy Kat was Krazy. Forty years of bricks!

    I assume a large portion of the paper will be devoted to cases of the sky falling on someones head.

    @Charles H.: You’re thinking of “Acquired growth hormone deficiency and hypogonadotropic hypogonadism in a subject with repeated head trauma.”

    One of the letters to the editor even suggested the Asterix follow-up study.
