So this past Sunday I set out on a bike ride with my wife and a friend along the Chicago lakefront and very shortly afterward I took a very bad tumble. I'm okay (bruised, road rashed and a sprained/shocked forearm) but I am mostly curious about what happened to my brain biologically. [more inside]

Can somebody shake their own head violently enough to give themselves a concussion

Can somebody shake their own head violently enough to give themselves a concussion? For instance, say somebody finishes a shower and shakes their head vigorously like a big dog to throw off excess water. Could that person give themselves a concussion? If they could, how easy/likely would that be, and has it ever happened before?

Then I made a terrible decision and decided to drink a bit. [more inside]
