People are always so excited about trying on other people’s helmets, it doesn’t even matter what job it is for. Firefighters, military, construction workers, special ed—all of their helmets have some sort of novelty associated with them that will turn even the most mature of people into a giddy little schoolgirl.
Iskra Lawrence is my prime example. She looks cool as a cucumber in all of the other photos, but as soon as that helmet touched her head she was energized with the enthusiasm of a dozen toddlers. Personally, I think that enthusiasm is misplaced. She must have no idea that those helmets get washed once every never, and have more bacteria in them than a petri dish.
I do not know how people can manage to not know this. As soon as the helmet gets within arms-reach they should be able to smell it. I can practically smell it through the picture.
I suppose most people are just happier not knowing, the same as they are with not knowing how clean their hotel room is, or how clean their one-night-stand’s sheets are. It’s best to pretend you got that ringworm from the homeless man you gave a dollar to one year ago.
