Head wounds bleed like mad for some reason.
Pretty simple reason actually.

The human head is laced with many small blood vessels.  So when you get a cut anywhere on the head you tend to bleed like a suck pig.  There are 5 pairs of arteries that supply blood to the scalp and by the time you get to the scalp, the vessels are pretty small but there are a lot of them.  If you get a cut down below the skin level, the blood vessels are anchored to a layer of fascia and because of that they don't retract if they are severed.  In other parts of the body a small severed vessel will retract deeper into the body which keeps it from bleeding so much.  This doesn't happen on the scalp, hence the profuse bleeding with even a small laceration.  You are unlikely to bleed out from them any time soon.  You can only cut so deep on the scalp and the big arteries are down in the neck and face but if the bleeding doesn't stop after a reasonable time after applying direct pressure, it's best to go see a doctor for suturing.  Of course if you see bright red blood spurting out in time with your pulse, then seeking medical attention is a good idea.

Just imagine a scalping back in the day.  Quite a messy event.

My last head wound was pretty embarrassing.

We were just getting ready to open a run for the season where I work part time. A fellow patroller said you should do a lap on 66 before we open it to the public. So of course I did. It was still early and I didn't fully have my legs under me, but I ripped it top to bottom in heavy powder slop shit. A couple turns from the bottom with my thighs were on fire, a couple customers looked up and one of them said hey check that out, so I tried to give them a show. Which I did, in uniform no less. As I tumbled forward ass over tea cup the tip of a ski rapidly advanced toward my face, easier to do on tele gear. It struck me just above the eye. Wound up sitting upright looking downhill at the two guys, they asked if I was OK then left. Now I'm feeling that all too familiar trickle that was turning into a torrent. Grabbed a handful of snow and mashed it into the wound which of course quickly filled with blood. Did that a few more times then high tailed it to the lift. The lift guy said dude are you alri.......shut up says I and hopped on, dripping all over me until I got back to my duty station. Asked a buddy of mine to take a look to see it it was a suturable laceration. He says ooh, ummm, yea go get it looked at. So I got several stitches and yet another story of stupidity to relate.

Looks kinda cool but all those ridges have got to be a drag on flow - like using corrugated hose on a bilge pump.
I get the surface drag end of it but those pipes are built around pressure waves moving back and forth.  An old Cycle Magazine ( or one of the other publications of the early seventies) columnist Kevin Cameron IIRC recouinted how he would build new pipes for his TZ250 after his rider (Nick Ianatch?) would report after a race how the motor ran. His bike at the end of one season was superior to the factory team.  The next year the factory team used his exact design.

Most corrugated hoses for suction applications are smooth on the inside, and corrugated on the outside to prevent collapse from the suction load.  One of my mechanics was complaining about collapsing suction hoses, so I called one of my hose people and got just what I described, and voila!

And I bet that expansion chamber that warbird posted was likewise pretty smooth on the inside.

This is why I loved my Dad so much. When I was about 8 after a morning surf session in the Fall at Manhattan Pier.....I asked him if we could drive up to the mountains to see the snow? I remember him walking over towards me, looking me in the eyes and saying;

'Ricky? Let me tell you something.....snow? Only belongs in a cone. With a flavored fruit drink on top.....and a shot of dark rum'.

Gawd but I miss that man..... :lol:

Your old man sounds like he was a lot of fun to hang around with. I just wish more people shared his and your aversion to snow.

And the true flow volume is handle by the stinger at the end of the pipe, the rest is a sonic reversionary (? :ph34r: ) chamber for timing and directing pressure waves.

are you kidding?  I love german porn..."Jah,Jah,jah,jah"
My girl friend rates my performance in bed.  6s,  7s, sometimes an eight.  At my age I think that's good. On a business trip I hooked up with a German gal who really appreciated my skills and technique.  Poking her ass I got the best rating in ages as she called out "Nein, nein, nein!

     My Dad and Stepmom had just arrived in Bremerhaven Germany where he would be in command of the Military Sealift Command for the Navy. It was summer and they decided to take a stroll in the beautiful, clean city park down by the river. They were so impressed with how well cared for the park was and polite everyone they met was. Until they came around a bend in the riverside trail and saw a man taking a piss in the bushes down by the river. My Stepmom was aghast at the sight of the man who took a long time shaking his member off and stuffing it back in his running shorts while grinning at her dismay. 

    My Dad pointed out to his wife that despite the guy looking like an exhibitionist his actions might be not considered a a public affront and pointed out the numerous girls openly sunbathing in the nude in the park. Still that did not keep her from quite loudly proclaiming "OOOH, Gross!!" to which the guy just smiled further and replied,

"Danke..."
