How is that a relevant test?

I'd like to know how many people weigh as much as a human head and fall over from 10 feet.

Clearly it's the people without bodies that fall over repeatedly...
C'mon, do it!

The drop test i beleive is the standard test for the helmet to pass DOT, the ability to sustain repeated dropping (impacts) is the requirement to attain SNELL accreditation. I don't beleive many people weigh as much as a human head and fall from 10 ft regularly at all, this is just a simulation test.

Some background on the SNELL test. When you watch this you might well argue that the ability to sustain such an impact is overkill as your neck would likely break. If you took this point of view you could possible be right, this is why I say do your own research and decide.
