let's just all agree that poor judgement was used in this situation and leave it at that.

i know *i'm* not capable of casting any stones when it comes to scooters & poor judgement.

That's rad. I mean, sure, there's the whole dumbass thing, but it's still a great clip. Kudos to him for getting up and walking away with fairly little damage.

The very thing that made him fall probably prevented him from cracking his skull open. The loose gravel probably cushioned his head's impact. If that were solid asphalt, he might be suffering from brain damage or worse.
