You gotta watch out for floors, especially after a few drinks.

The point is, why do we need a study to tell us that kids can bonk their heads on floors and furniture?

If they really want to do a study, they need to see what the reaction time is for parents to put their phones down and get to the children once they've injured themselves.

As the name suggests, traumatic brain injuries are a bit more severe than bonking your head.

It's not a study of what can cause traumatic brain injuries. It's data collection to determine how real people in the real world receive real brain injuries. I haven't read the study, but I would guess it's for the purpose of figuring out how best to reduce traumatic brain injuries.

Still not sure how this is pussification. Is the prevention of severe injuries with potentially lifelong aftereffects considered pussification?

^^complaints about money spent on frivolous studies can be be valid, but a major media news story is almost never a good representation of a study.

There is a whole conference on giving awards for the most ridiculous sounding study, but then the researchers get up and describe it and there is almost always more to it than it seems.

I think John oliver did something on this topic as well.

Either way, pussification doesn't really fit at all. If you see lawmakers pushing for padded floors and walls, then maybe

"[Lockdowns' and masks'] effectiveness aside, along with the view among some that they're not terribly healthy, isn't the bigger story that they're not very American? Really, what does the rest of the world think? And doesn’t it kind of matter what others think? Would Robert Mitchum have ever consented to wearing a mask out of fear of a virus? Can anyone seriously imagine John Wayne putting on a mask? As for social distancing, the Duke's commanding, intimidating presence ensured that none would come too close to him. And the idea that some business owner would tell a mask-free Wayne to put one on, and that some hyper-alarmist patron would tell him to keep 6 feet away is just too silly for words."

I imagine that Wayne would treat the pandemic the same way he treated service in World War II and would go to great lengths to avoid it.

^^^ "doesn't it kind of matter what others think" is a pretty wussy way of justifying that
