Pro skateboarder Tony Hawk is a nine-time gold medal winner at the X-Games, a skate park designer, actor, video game mogul — and without question the coolest guy ever to wear a dorky helmet and knee pads. (Because this is public radio, we will point out that "skateboarding" is one of those fun things your mother wouldn't let you do.)

Hawk has spent his career horrifying the concerned mothers of America, so we've asked him to play a game we're calling "Hey! You could put an eye out!" — three questions about safety measures.
