I Don't Know Why This Makes Me Happy, But It Does

From today's New York Times:

A medical study conducted by an Australian scientist suggests that the heavy-metal practice of headbanging to fast music can cause head and neck injuries, The Guardian reported. In a study published in the British Medical Journal, Andrew McIntosh, an associate professor at the School of Risk and Safety Sciences at the University of New South Wales, writes that flailing along to a headbanging song (with an average tempo of 146 beats per minue) can cause "mild head injury when the range of motion is greater than 75 degrees"; at faster tempos the risks can range from headaches to strokes [emphasis mine].

Hmm. So THAT's why we haven't heard anything from Wayne and Garth lately....

We may never hear from "Wayne" again after The Love Guru.
