owever if you've got two competitors on the same machine, wearing matching leathers, neither conscious and I doubt they are wearing dog tags, then without someone from the team/family confirming who was who, it's kind of understandable. 

 

Some consideration should be given to find a better way in that case.

Incredible that Olivier's family will now be receiving the news that he isn't in fact dead - but will have had absolute heartache for the last 4 days or so.

If I recall correctly, one of the organisers first announcements at the time was that the race would be re-scheduled and details will be issued as soon as possible. Perhaps they should have focussed more on the riders they were dealing with rather than the TT schedule.

We know what's happened. 

 

What you want is everyone to stay quiet until it all goes away. 

Not this time.

Briefly, in the moment. But not before you're informing families. Wouldn't medics need to establish identity for transfusions etc.

I wonder whether there's something neurological that makes them perceive risk differently. 

Most humans don't understand risk and probability. You can say the same for smokers, heavy drinkers and drug users too.

Everyone is indestructible...until something happens to them.

Similarly for anyone spending money on the lottery  - 99.999% are overall losers over time.

More likely that the enjoyment is worth the risk. Everyone perceives risk differently - I'm not sure that's down to neurological differences. I ride a motorbike despite the risk being considerably higher than a car. Don't even use it to commute, purely for enjoyment. Many of my friends would consider that too risky to do themselves, and I've just realised I've set you up to accuse me of having a neurological problem.

I think people just want different things out of life.

I realise forums are for debate but this has gone full circle enough times for it to be a bit pointless now. There are two sides to every healthy debate and this surely has run its course for another year. Its only serving to wind people up which leads to aggression and trolling, something that we should all think about when we look at the bigger picture - is it really worth it?

No, you cross-match blood each time with the patient in front of you. However, if your blood type is on record from a previous admission, then the system would flag up a mismatch if it happened to be different.

Plus they were brothers, so probably same blood types?

Some military friends have had their blood types tatto'd on their arms.
