When helmets where first introduced into Football they were made from hard leather. Now plastic or composites such as fiber glass are used as they are light weight and are able to withstand certain amounts of force by distributing the impact.

Can a bullet be dropped from a UAV as a weapon?


First, a dropped bullet would not have the energy to penetrate a helmet. second, even if it did theres no way to aim it. a shot bullet is traveling at high speed and is stabilized in flight by spiraling like an american football. a dropped one would tumble and be subject to wind. i do not think the tech is available to make a bullet steerable. the guided projectiles available are all much larger caliber, usually fired from Howitzer cannon.

Choosing the best climbing helmet for your head


Rock climbing is a very fun hobby but it can also be very dangerous. Wearing a helmet when you climb can be a life saver, but it is important
that you make sure that you are wearing the right helmet both for the
activity you are performing and for your head.

When it comes to selecting the right type of helmet there are two main types to choose from, suspension and sponge. The suspension helmets are very similar to a construction helmet, its a hard shell with a netting on the inside.
These are really great for vertical dropping objects but they tend to be a little heavy. The other type of helmets are the foam helmets. These ones are made out of a lighter-weight polystyrene or polypropylene foam with a hard shell over it. It works by absorbing the energy of the of the falling object in the plastic and will deform the foam permanently. The durability of the helmet depends on the thickness of the shell, but because the impact on the helmet permanently damages the helmet it may not be very effective for extensive use.

After you have chosen the type of helmet that you will be using, its time to head into making sure that you have the right fit for your helmet. Keep in mind that you
will be more likely to use a helmet that fits correctly and is comfortable, before buying you should test out the helmet like you do with a pair of shoes. Many of the top climbing stores will allow you to try on and test out the helmet to make sure that it fits properly.

There are two main features that you have to pay attention to when trying on and picking out the right fitting helmet, they are adjustability and the chin strap. You start by placing the helmet on your head with it straight on your head making sure that you don’t tilt the helmet because you have to keep your forehead protected. Next you want to shake your head from side to side, does the helmet move? If it does then you want to either look for a different size helmet or if you can adjust the straps on the inside of the helmet so that it fits snugly. Then buckle the chin strap, it should fit snugly on your chin and form a Y shape
around your ears. There should not be any slack in the straps and if you
wear a pack make sure that you can lift your head to look up while
wearing the helmet.

A few side notes to keep in mind when considering the helmet you want to get. If you are going to be climbing in a very hot or very cold climate when you buy the helmet make sure to take your headscarf or hat with you so that you get a helmet that fits with them underneath. Where you are going to be climbing can also have an impact on the helmet that you will buy, if you are going to be
climbing in a cold climate that has ice you will want to get a solid helmet that will protect you from falling debris, while if you are going to be climbing in a warmer climate you will want to get a helmet that has air vents to allow for air circulation.

WHAT KIND OF PAINT DO I USE TO PAINT A FOOTBALL HELMET?


Clean well/ dry completely. Lightly sand with a fine grade of sandpaper, apply either Fusion" spray paint by Sherwin Williams (Krylon) . It does a great job sticking to plastic without primer, and also has a durable finish. The finish is glossy, but not with much depth. To achieve that deeper wet look, add a coat or two of Krylon's Gloss Polyurethane.

How to fit a snowboard helmet?


"Getting the right fit is the most important factor to consider when buying a Snowboarding Helmet: 1. Measuring Tape. Your helmet size is determined by the circumference of your head. Wrap a measuring tape around your head to get your helmet size. 2. Align the front of the helmet above your eyebrows and hold both straps until the helmet fits well. 3. Make sure there are no unwanted gaps between the helmet lining and your head. The back of the helmet should not touch the back of your neck. 4. The helmet should fit snug and nicely. 5. Try one of your favorite pairs of Snowboard Goggles and make sure they fit properly on your helmet. Please note that the producers of helmets all have different ideas on the shape of a human head. Although the size might be right, the shape of the helmet might be different from the shape of your head."
