I'm surprised there's anything still going on in my head after cracking it on the door frame of my tatami room at least once a week for the last ten years.

Banging your head against things is bad. I cannot believe that in the 21st century this is coming as a surprise to some people.

To a point they need to think about it a bit more, then again this ex rugby player retired from amateur rugby relatively unscathed, just a niggly shoulder and some occasional ankle and knee pain. No concussions. Had I been good enough, I would gladly have traded my current state for a messed up body and a raft of concussions if I could have appeared for the All Blacks even once.
